Day 1: MARRAKECH – KASBAH AIT BEN HADOU – ZAGORA (8 HOURS DRIVE)

You will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech around 07h30 AM for your shared 2-day desert tour to Zagora. Sit back and enjoy the ride as you pass through the Tizi Ntichka pass (2260 m. alt) and different adobe Berber villages. You may even see locals herding their goats! There will be a stop in the middle of the High Atlas Mountains so you can take some pictures, stretch your legs or have a cup of coffee. Upon arrival at Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, you will have some free time to explore this UNESCO world heritage site and its famous fortified village. This village was used as a set for various Biblical epics and a backdrop for commercial and modeling photoshoots. If you wish to join the group on a guided tour, there is an extra fee of €3.00 per person. After the visit to the Kasbah, you will have an hour’s lunch break at leisure. From here, we will
continue driving past Ouarzazate and cross the Northeastern parts of the Anti-Atlas Mountains to the oasis of Agdz. After a quick stop in the village center, you’ll be ready to admire one amazing scenery after another. Drive along Draa Valley, where you’ll see fortified Kasbahs and oases dotted with hundreds of thousands of date palm trees. Draa Valley is home to the largest palm tree plantation in Morocco. You’ll arrive at the Zagora desert late in the afternoon, where you’ll meet your camel caravan. Your camel trekking adventure will begin through the Zagora desert, and you’ll get to experience an amazing sunset camel ride for about an hour. Please note that there are barely any sand dunes in Zagora. Just before it gets dark, you’ll drive your camels to our Berber desert camp nestled in the middle of nowhere. You’re in for a treat tonight! A delicious Moroccan dinner will be served at your Bedouin camp, followed by an incredible drums performance next to the campfire.
Your local desert nomad hosts will play and sing traditional folklore music until around midnight. Feel free to learn about the stars and constellations or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the desert under the crystal-clear night sky.

Day 2: ZAGORA- OUARZAZATE- MARRAKECH (7 HOURS DRIVE)

From there, you will depart for Ouarzazate, where we’ll stop for lunch at a local café and visit Taourirt Kasbah (optional – depending on timing, entrance fees apply).
Early in the afternoon, you’ll drive back to Marrakech crossing the High Atlas Mountains. Your overnight desert tour from Marrakech to Zagora will end around 19h00 in the summer and 20h00 in the winter.
