Day Trip Itinerary

Half Day : Marrakech - Agafay Desert

Begin your adventure 45 minutes southwest of Marrakech, passing through olive and orange farms, and meet your driver at your hotel/riad. From there, travel to the Agafay Desert. Upon arriving, you will be outfitted with the equipment of a local nomad, including a blue robe and a headscarf, and have the opportunity to take pictures of yourself in your newfound garb. After a brief introduction to your camel, you will be off on an hour-long journey through the desert. While during a rainy spring season, the arid land may contain some green vegetation, the true highlight of the trip is the magnificent view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains in the horizon. Head to a picturesque spot on a high plateau just before dusk to watch the sky light up with the most spectacular shades of pink and orange. Enjoy a hot cup of fresh mint tea while watching the sun descend in the horizon, then take a ride back to Marrakech with your driver and be dropped off at your desired destination in the city center.


  • Enjoy a private guided excursion in a modern 4x4 or van with an English-speaking driver from your Marrakech hotel or Riad.
  • Take in the sights of the beautiful Agafay desert and enjoy a 1-hour sunset camel ride.
  • A refreshing cup of mint tea in a Bedouin tent to complete the experience and watch the sun set over the desert.
  • At the end of the day, you will be smoothly returned to your Marrakech hotel or Riad.
