If your journey to Marrakech is brief and you're short on time to venture into the depths of the expansive Moroccan desert, fret not! The Agafay Desert, a breathtaking expanse conveniently located only an hour away from Marrakech, presents the perfect opportunity for a day trip.
This Agafay Desert adventure offers a tranquil day amidst the unique desert landscape, complemented by awe-inspiring views of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. The highlight? An intimate encounter with local Berber life in the nearby Berber villages, providing an authentic insight into their culture against the backdrop of this stunning desert terrain.
And most importantly! Excellent Service. 🙂
If you are on a trip to Morocco and only have a day to experience the landscapes and lifestyle of the Moroccan desert, a one-day excursion from Marrakech to the Agafay Desert will be your best choice. Meet your driver/guide at your hotel and drive southeast, passing through orange, olive, and peach farms until you reach the lunar-like arid hills of the Agafay Desert.
From here, you'll cross off the beaten track. As you move forward, you'll find yourself in the rocky scenario of the Agafay Desert. You'll traverse dry rivers, canyons, and oases. Drive next to Berber villages and watch the passing of sheep herds.
After a cup of mint tea, get ready for an hour-long camel ride followed by a delicious Moroccan lunch served under a nomadic tent. In the afternoon, you'll continue to Lake Lalla Takerkoust, located at the other end of the Agafay Desert. This lake serves as a water reservoir supplying drinking water to Marrakech. On the horizon, you'll witness the majesty of the High Atlas Mountains, filled with snow for most of the year.
In the late afternoon, we'll return to Marrakeck, and your one-day excursion through the Agafay Desert will come to an end with the drop-off at your hotel.
