Day Trip to Agafay Desert from Marrakech

If you don’t have time to see the Sahara desert on your Moroccan vacation, this is a great day trip from Marrakech to Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the tranquility of the desert and the countryside with this Sahara tour.

You can’t see the southern Moroccan Saharan sand dunes because of the limited time you have in Marrakech. However, if you’d like to get a sense of the vastness and solitude of the desert, you may still make a quick detour to the “Marrakech Desert,” also known as Agafay. At nine in the morning, a driver will pick you up from your hotel or riad and drive you a short distance to Agafay.

The region near Agafay is stony, dry, and moonlike, providing unanticipated and magnificent views of the High Atlas Mountains, which are covered in snow during the winter. You may face a few flocks of sheep going by in quest of grass and herbs in this mineral world. You’ll enjoy a traditional Moroccan lunch in Agafay Desert luxury camp. And, of course, this is followed by a relaxing glass of the famous Moroccan mint tea, Before you enjoy a one-hour camel ride in this fantastic desert place when the sun is about to get down.

This will let you catch a beautiful sunset up the camel, and you will see the beauty of the evening and live the desert vibe. You feel as though you can see for miles when you’re standing on the Kik Plateau’s grassland, practically treeless plain. There are breathtaking views around every corner. Look down at the lovely valley that lies below you. Your eyes will go through the foothills and up toward the majestic High Atlas Mountains if you take a different direction.

Take in the peace of a tranquil Berber village by turning your head in a different direction. You might realize that this place offers so much tranquillity that you never want to leave! We go to the artificial Lalla Takerkoust Lake, which provides water to Marrakech. The annual replenishment of this lake by Marrakech depends on that snow. With all of its highways, swimming pools, and golf courses, this most populated city in Morocco has a high need for water.

We leave the highlands, which are still pristine in many sections, and head back to Marrakech. Your day trip to Agafay desert will come to a conclusion with drop-off at your accommodation when we return to Marrakech in the late evening.
