Pick up from the hotel, and start away the journey for Zagora desert tour. We leave Marrakech behind and head towards the Mountains of the high Atlas. We enjoy the spectacular landscape of Toufliht National Park. Pine, oak and Moroccan cactus trees are the most common species. We include stops to capture some vivid and gorgeous pictures of the deep valleys.
Later on, we reach the curved snake road of the famous Tizi N’tichka pass which has the nicest panoramic views giving out to deep and enclosed valleys. Here we are on the peak! Afterwards we will go down the road leading to the village of Ait Ben Haddou, a little town at the edge of Oued Lmalh (Salty River).
At the edge side, a beautiful tall building is perching at a hillside. Yes, this is the Kasbah! An entire village made of Adobe where people inhabit. We take a guided visit of the Kasbat which is a UNESCO world heritage site.The fortified village was taken as a movie set for Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia movies, beside more than twenty others. Lunch will be taken before or after the visit upon choice.
Later on, we pass the city of Ouarzazate and drive on the Mountains of the Anti-Atlas that have nice rock formation. We enjoy the drive along the Draa valley where millions of palm trees are planted along the River. Nearby Zagora, you enjoy a camel trek into our tented camp. You spend the night in a peaceful area under nomad tents. Enjoy the starry sky and some traditional music with the campers.
Wake up for nice pictures of the sunrise in the desert and have breakfast. We start the journey back to Marrakech. We see the Draa valley and pass by the town of Agdez. Along the way, you stop for lunch. At the afternoon, we drive via the Mountains to Marrakech. Drop off at your hotel.
