If you are a Desert enthusiast and you are visiting Marrakech for a short time, but you see that it is not practical to journey to the Sahara because it takes at least 3-days and almost 10 hours’ drive in one direction, well, no need to worry.

If it is not your cup of tea to make this big trip, there are other desert tours you can quickly get straight from Marrakech. Not a lot of people know about Agafay Desert, only 30 min from your hotel/Riad in Marrakech. To be honest, you will not find the golden rolling sand dunes there (it’s a stone desert) but you absolutely can have the secluded desert experience complete with stunning views of the High Atlas Mountains. In addition, it is closed enough to easily be a day trip from Marrakech.

  • Enjoy lunch in the rocky desert

    Tour Plan


    Embark for an extraordinary excursion in the seductive desert of Agafay. Get picked up by your driver at noon from your hotel or riad in Marrakech. Head to the beautiful Agafay Desert, less than an hour from the city and hidden just behind the Atlas Mountains. It is one of the most mysterious landscapes in the world, made up of rocky terrain and Saharan dunes. Arrival at 12:45 pm at the camp and check-in in your tent for a warm welcome with tea and delicious Moroccan pastries. Take the time to relax and marvel at the magnificent desert landscapes before a lunch of Moroccan salads and grilled meats, or a vegetarian option. If you have selected one of the complementary activities - camel, quad or buggy ride - they will start after lunch to align with the sunset. Otherwise, enjoy free time to enjoy the calm of the desert. After sunset, a magical and unforgettable private dinner will be served. The menu will include Moroccan soup, salads, three hot dishes, three kinds of Moroccan tagines and a dessert made with seasonal fruits. Spend the rest of the evening in front of the charming campfire and admire the beautiful stars in the sky. The next morning, wake up to a hearty breakfast at the camp before heading back to Marrakech at 10:00 am and arriving at 11:00 am.
