Desert Tours Zagora From Marrakech - 2 days 1 night
7h30 departure in a 4x4 from Marrakesh across the High Atlas Mountains and over the Tizi-n-Tichka (2260m) From these mountains, the views over the valleys and the Berber villages perched on the mountain sides, sometimes barely distinguishable from the mountains themselves, are spectacular. Having crossed the pass, you continue to descend until you finally reach Ouarzazate where you stop for lunch. In the afternoon, you cross another smaller pass, Tizi-n-Tinififte, before reaching the head of the Dra'a Valley at Agdez. We go off-road along the ancient caravan route between the mountains and the river, passing many villages and gardens so that you can gain a better idea of the oases lifestyle. You then reach Zagora and the dunes, where you will have a camel ride to watch the sunset and have dinner in the dunes at the bivouac of nomad tents where you'll spend the night.
If you get up early enough to see the sunrise, you will be rewarded by the wonderful play of shadows across the sand. After breakfast you return north, taking another short off-road.
From Ouarzazate, you leave the main Marrakesh road to reach the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. This Kasbah, the most famous in Morocco, has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters and was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharian Africa to Marrakesh and beyond. From there, you continue along the new and truly magnificent road to Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Lords of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, the visit continues to reach Marrakesh before it gets dark.the price is 250€ per person in confortable car and driver guide.
