Morocco Itinerary: 2 Days Desert Trip Marrakech to Zagora

The departure of the 2-day desert trip to Zagora will be in the morning, whether from the airport or your hotel. After that, we drive through the high Atlas Mountains to the summit of 2260m (Tizi n Tichka). It means a difficult pass.

We will stop for pictures through the views and Ait Benhadou’kasbah. It has been classed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1987. Lunch will be in the Hollywood of North Africa, named Ouarzazate City, which is the departure point of the Sahara Desert.

We continue through the ”Draa Valley” at a length of 200 km. And then arrived Zagora. Then, you will ride camels for an hour, trekking out into the desert dunes to watch the magical sunset. You will spend the night in a Berber nomad tent with a delicious local dinner.

You can wake up early to enjoy the sunrise over the dunes and fantastic landscapes of harsh Saharan desert land. After those beautiful moments and exploration experience of desert land, you will have your breakfast meal in camp, the sun shining and becoming warm or a little hot, and you will ride your camels back to Zagora Hotel.

We can also drive our 4×4 car just from the camp instead of riding the camels to the road. We drive back to Marrakech through the Draa valley and Agdez to discover the hidden treasures of the southern regions. Continue to Ouarzazate, where you will have your lunch, and explore the city with its ‘Cinema Studios’.

In the afternoon, drive back to Marrakech via the high Atlas Mountains. We reach Marrakech around 6:00 p.m. and the end of the two days.
