Itinerary from Marrakech to the Zagora desert

DAY 1: MARRAKECH - KASBAH AIT BEN HADOU - ZAGORA (8 HOURS OF DRIVING)
Your circuit in the desert with your shared budget of 2 days between Marrakech and Zagora will start around 7:30 am by joining a group bound for Zagora via the Tizi Ntichka pass (at 2260 m altitude) in front of various Berber villages in adobe and locals raising their goats. You will stop in the middle of the High Atlas mountains to take photos and stretch your legs or have a coffee. Upon arrival at Ait Ben Hadou Kasbah, you will have time to explore the UNESCO World Heritage village and its famous Kasbah, which has been used as a backdrop for various Bible epics, as well as for commercial photo and modeling sessions. If you wish to join the group for a guided tour, an additional charge of € 2.00 per person will be charged for your local guide. After visiting the Kasbah, you will have an hour free lunch break.

From there, we will continue to Ouarzazate crossing the northeast of the Anti Atlas to the oasis of Agdz. After a brief stop in the center of the village, prepare to admire the most incredible landscapes one after the other, traversing the Draa Valley with its fortified kasbahs and its oases dotted with thousands of date palms. The Draa Valley is home to the largest palm plantation in Morocco. Upon arrival in the Zagora Desert late in the afternoon, we will meet our camel caravans and our camel trekking adventure will begin through the Zagora Desert while preparing for a magnificent sunset for about one hour. Please note that there are almost no sand dunes in Zagora.

Just before dark, we drive our camels to our Berber desert camp nestled in the middle of nowhere. a delicious Moroccan dinner will be served this evening in your Bedouin camp. Right after dinner, get ready for a fantastic drum performance by the campfire. Your local nomadic desert hosts will play drums and sing local folk music until around midnight. Do not hesitate to learn more about the constellation of stars or simply enjoy the silence of the desert under a crystal clear sky.

PS: the standard desert camp included in the price of 59 euros is very basic. If you wish to stay in a comfortable camp with hot showers, a supplement of 15.00 euros per person will be charged.
