2 Days 1 Night Zagora Desert Trip from Marrakech
If you are planning to take a long enough trip to Marrakech, there is nothing typical that a hike in the desert and a night in a traditional Berber tented camp .
Day 1: Ait Ben Haddou – Draa Valley – Zagora
The first day we leave at 8:00 am from Marrakech in the direction of Zagora. During the journey we will pass the Tizi n’Tichka pass, a mountain pass that crosses the High Atlas at 2260 meters above sea level , and we will see several Berber villages.
After a short visit of the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou , we will resume our journey towards Zagora. We will cross the Anti Atlas and we will see the Berber village of Agdz and the Valley of the Draa with its palm grove , the last trace of vegetation before entering the desert.
We will arrive in Zagora in time to admire the sunset on the back of a camel in the desert.
After a typical dinner, we will spend the night in a traditional Berber tent and watch a show of drums.
Day 2: Zagora – Valle del Draa – Ouarzazate
The second day we will have to wake up early to admire an unforgettable show: the dawn in the desert . After watching the sun rise and have breakfast, we will return to Zaroga by camel to continue the excursion (depending on the type of camping, we will have breakfast and shower before or after the camel ride).
We will cross the Draa Valley and Agdz again until we reach Ouarzazade , a city where we will visit the Kasbah of Taourirt .
We will depart in the afternoon to Marrakech. You can have lunch in Ouarzazate or during the trip.
