The magnificent Sahara Desert in Morocco may be experienced on a trip that is condensed into only two days and travels from Marrakech to Zagora. This trip includes transportation in a car that is equipped with air conditioning.
What you’re going to do
During this incredible private two-day journey from Marrakech to Zagora, you will have the opportunity to visit various fascinating spots along the route that connects Marrakech and Ouarzazate. Your tour will begin in Marrakech and end in Zagora. Sunlight Kasbahs such as Taourirt in Ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou kasbahs.
Day 1: Marrakech - Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou - Zagora
To get your desert adventure started, we will meet you at either your hotel or the airport. After that, we'll begin our journey into the Atlas Mountains (tizi tichka pass, 4,260 m), where we'll make a pit break to take pictures and see the Berber settlements that live in the mountains. After that, we will make a detour to the Talouet Kasbah in order to take a look around and discover more about its allure.
To get to the Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou, we will take a cab there. You will be astounded by the rich history that can be found at this fortress, which is home to around six Kasbahs. After catching fish in the Kasbah, we are going to make our way to Ouarzazate. You are now able to view the site that has been used in a large number of Hollywood films. In addition to a great number of other films, the clapperboard was used in the production of The Living Crap, Gladiator, and Lawrence of Arabia.
As we go through the Draa Valley this evening, you will come across a wonderful oasis and a breathtaking setting, both of which will serve as sources of motivation for you on a daily basis. By the end of the day, we will have made it to our camels and will be on our way to the camp in the Berber Desert.
Day 2: Zagora - Ouarzazate - Marrakech
You will be woken up very early on the second day so that you may see the sunrise over the Sahara desert and then have a tour of the surrounding area as the sun continues to rise. You will have the choice, following breakfast in the tent, of traveling back by camel or by 4x4 vehicle.
The tour guide will take a number of side trips off the main road on the way back to Zagora so that we may take in the breathtaking scenery of the Dra Valley on route to Ouarzazate, where we will stop at Kasbah Taourirt before continuing on to the high-altitude Tichka Pass.
The trip will make two stops in Marrakech, between five and seven o'clock in the evening. Depending on the conditions, you will be delivered to the lodging of your choice after the tour has concluded.
