Camel trekking and camping with the best 2 days desert tour from Marrakech to Zagora. Contact us to book this trip.
The most well-liked trip we provide is the 2-day desert tour from Marrakech to Zagora since it’s ideal for those who don’t have much time but yet like sleeping in tents and riding camels for a short while. Zagora is a rocky type of desert; unlike Erg Chebbi, it doesn’t have large sand dunes. Nevertheless, this 2-day desert tour from Marrakech will give you the chance to have an unforgettable experience by traveling through the high Atlas Mountains, taking in the breathtaking views of the Draa valley, visiting Ait Benhaddou, riding camels, and spending the night in a camp or under the stars.
Day 1: Marrakech to Zagora via Ait Benhaddou.
Our experienced drivers will pick you up from your lodging at 7:00 AM for the 2-day desert excursion from Marrakech to Zagora in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle or minibus. To go to the Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where many well-known Hollywood films were made, we must first traverse the high Atlas Mountains through the Tizi-n-Tichka pass, which offers views of the lush mountain foothills. Those who appreciate the beauty of nature should visit to enjoy the breathtaking view from the tallest hill. After that, we’ll make a pit stop in Ouarzazate, dubbed “Africa’s Hollywood,” to check out Kasbah Taourirt and have lunch there. After that, we’ll go through the 180 km of Draa Valley oasis. Ultimately, in the late afternoon, we will arrive in Zagora, from where we will ride camels to our desert camp for nomads. We’ll take in a delicious lunch and some local music before retiring to our tents for the night.
Day 2: Zagora back to Marrakech.
On the second day of your 2-day Zagora desert trip, you’ll be awakened before dawn so you can take in the first mesmerizing glimmers of a brand-new day and a brand-new adventure. We will begin the day with a typical Berber breakfast in one of Zagora’s bivouacs, ride camels to our cars, travel to Ouarzazate for lunch, and then traverse the High Atlas Mountains to finish the two-day Marrakech to Zagora desert trip in Marrakech at 5:00 p.m.
