2 days Marrakech desert tour
The 2 days Marrakech desert tour begins nice and early (so as to get as much in on your first day) with a pick up from your hotel. We request you actually be ready before 8.00 a.m. (private tour) or 7.00 a.m. (shared tour) as by this hour we shall be heading out and getting under way on an adventure of a lifetime.
This tour is available as a shared experience within a minibus or as a private tour within a 4 x 4 vehicle or a minivan. The Marrakech to Zagora desert trip will also include an opportunity to ride on the caravan of the desert. But we do appreciate camel riding is not everyone’s idea of comfort, so walking alongside the guide or taking transport to the desert camp is an option, should you prefer. This trip is perfect for those who are short on time and wish to seize the opportunity to become introduced to the Moroccan Sahara desert in a just two days.
The journey begins inside a modern air-conditioned minibus, should you come as part of a shared group, where we will head towards the Atlas Mountains. Our first port of call is at the Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou.
This walled city actually is home to around six Kasbahs and you’ll be amazed at the ancient feel of the place. After our stop off at the Kasbah we will head to the city of Ouarzazate. Here you can witness the place where many Hollywood blockbuster films were shot. The Living Daylights, Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia, among others, have all seen the clapperboard in this city.
If the scheduler allows for it, we may also stop off at the Atlas Film Studios. There is a 3.00 euro entrance fee to the studios, which has not been included within the price. Entry to the studios is at your own discretion.
The afternoon is when we make our way through the Draa Valley. You will see a beautiful oasis and a stunning landscape that will have you taking photographs at regular points. At the end of this day we will meet up with our camels and ride to the desert Berber camp.
The Overnight Stay
The overnight stay in the Berber tents will include a sumptuous evening meal and breakfast in the morning. It is possible to upgrade your overnight accommodation to a luxury desert camp with shower.
The following day will see us return into the desert city of Zagora where we will relive the journey back through the Draa Valley. We then go back over the Atlas Mountains and return to Marrakech where you can expect to return around 6.00 or 7.00 p.m.
