Unforgettable 2 Days From Marrakech To Zagora

We took a 2 day trip from Marrakech to Zagora leaving at around 7.30am from our Riad in the Medina. We stopped at various points to take pictures, get coffee, go to the loo and we had lovely views in the Atlas mountains. In the afternoon we visited Ait ben Haddou which was well worth it. At Zagora, we then rode camels for 1.5h to get to the Berber camp, where we had a lovely tajine and a wonderful evening experience. The next day after a camel ride back (30 mins or so) we then drove to Ouarzazate for a visit and ultimately got back to Marrakech around 7pm. The driver was superb and the overall experience was amazing. Walking on sand dunes in the Sahara on a camel is a once in a lifetime experience!

Excellent desert tour

We booked a 2 Days From Marrakech To Zagora and we had a very good experience! The pickup was in Marrakech by the driver Moha. The communication about the pick-up went very well and very nice people. The tour with the camels and stay in the desert was a real adventure. The guides were also very nice and I have learned a lot of Morocco. Thank you very much for this adventure. My wife and I really bebouwd. Greetings from Amsterdam. Big shout out to Moha!


Great experience

The 2 Day Trip to Zagora Desert was very nice. The desert itself is not that big, but it is an experience to watch the sky with bright stars and sleep in the tents. Also the food was very good!
