2 Day Desert Trip to Zagora from Marrakech 


Day 1 – Marrakech to Zagora

Bright and early your driver will pick you up from your Marrakech hotel to begin your 2 day desert trip to the Sahara Desert at Zagora.
Travelling to Zagora through the High Atlas Mountains you will pass awe-inspiring landscapes.
You will see the horizon change from lush greenery lined with the fruits of the season (sometimes red for pomegranates or a mix of purple and red from the maturing cactus fruit trees) to the rocky, arid landscape of the Anti-Atlas Mountains.
Once we’re over the mountains, there will be a stop in Ouarzazate.
Known as the Hollywood of Morocco, films like The Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia where made here.  
From there you will drive along the longest valley in Morocco, the Draa River Valley, which is 1,100 km long.
When you arrive in Zagora;
  • you will meet your camels;
  • trek into the desert camp;
  • have dinner prepared by nomads;
  • spend the night in your tents; and
  • you can hear of nomadic Amazigh songs and drum rhythm.

Day 2 – Zagora to Marrakech

In the morning;

  • rise before the sun;
  • climb the tallest dune nearby;
  • watch the sunrise over the Sahara;
  • have breakfast at the desert camp; and
  • start your journey back to Marrakech.


After the morning drive, you will stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah.


Spend some time exploring one of the longest constantly occupied kasbahs in the country.


If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you’ll recognize the kasbah as the city of Yunkai in the show!


Once we are back in Marrakech, your driver will leave you safely back at your accommodations for the night after a memorable desert trip to Zagora.
