You don't have to go to the Sahara Desert to experience the Moroccan desert-the Agafay Desert is a desert oasis on the outskirts of Marrakech. On this full-day tour, you can admire the scenery while traversing the High Atlas Mountains, stop to explore the local villages and visit the Berber open-air market, then board an exciting camel through the rocky desert of Agafay.

Marrakech To atlas mountains and desert agafay Full

Fall in love with the diverse and unique beauty of Moroccan valleys, mountains, countryside, and deserts on this full-day guided tour from Marrakech. After picking up around 8:30 in the morning, head to the Atlas Mountains and pass through a small village where you can visit the Argan Oil Cooperative and the traditional Berber souk (market).

Imlil to Armed

Arrive in Imlil, hike, or ride a camel to the highest and largest village armed in the Imlil Valley. Your journey will take you through waterfalls and the small villages of Atmizan, Targa, and Imola. Stop at Tamatert and admire the ancient irrigated fields of barley, corn, and vegetables, surrounded by cherry and walnut trees. I will point out interesting sights and introduce you to Berber culture and heritage along the way.

Ait Souka

Return to the village of Ait Souka, where you will meet a Berber family and enjoy traditional Moroccan Lunch as a guest in their home. Go to the Kik Plateau, 1,800 meters above sea level, and enjoy the spectacular 360-degree panorama, and in spring, the wonderful spread of alpine flowers.

Lalla Takerkoust Lake

We reach the edge of Lake Lalla Takerkoust, whose dam supplies Marrakesh with all its energy. Take a tea break and enjoy the views of the lake, or if you prefer an adrenaline rush, you can arrange quad biking or jet-skiing locally.

Agafay Desert

Finally, drive to the Agafay Desert and relax in the peace and quiet of the countryside. Pass through the stone desert, barren light brown plateaus, Bedouin villages, oases, and high hills with views of the High Atlas. Take in the sunset views from above if the timing is right before returning to Marrakesh.

Very Enjoyable Time

Being out on vacation for the weekend, some of our previous plans got cancelled, so I was seeking out places to do some last-minute worth while activities in place of what we had lost. I had contacted Mustapha the morning of the camel ride, and he responded to me within the next two hours about availability for the same day, which is NOT easy to get, depending on your ability to network. We set up a time for the same evening (which Mustapha suggested, in order for us to catch the sunset in the area), and he was a very kind and wonderful guide. The camel ride with transportation to and from our location in Marrakech was around 2-2.5 hr, but we spent an entire hour mounted on the camels, being led by a walking guide. The hour was definitely a good amount of time spent on those huge animals! He walked with us the entire time, giving information about the Dromedaries, and other insightful things about the Palm Grove area and Berbers including the village that we were able to pass by. He took FABULOUS photos of us, some of which we were shocked to see, and was very kind hearted in his treatment of us, as well as our driver who drove us all to and from the groves. If your are concerned because of the website (which I understand, it was initially off-putting for me as well, being that I didn't know which sites were and were not trustworthy), I definitely want to encourage you that you will have a very nice time on this tour and with this guide. The groves are lovely and if you can get an evening tour (we arrived a bit too early for sunset), or are looking for an alternative to an all-day trip that offers camel riding, I would certainly recommend!!
