Agafay Desert Day Trip

You don’t have to travel to the Sahara for a Moroccan desert experience – the Agafay Desert is a desert oasis located just outside of Marrakech. On this full-day tour, take in the scenery as you drive through the High Atlas Mountains, stop to explore local villages and visit a Berber souk, then embark on a camel trek through the rocky desert of ‘Agafay.

Agafay Desert Day Trip view

For the day trip to the Agafay Desert and the Atlas Mountains.

Your driver will pick you up from your hotel or riad in Marrakech to begin your day trip to the Agafay Desert and the Atlas Mountains.

As you travel through the Agafay Desert and through the High Atlas Mountains, you will pass through grandiose landscapes. You will see the horizon transform as you leave the lush trees filled with Marrakech’s seasonal fruit.

You will then continue to Amizmiz which is a junction point between the many small Berber villages in the area. The weekly souk plays an important part of this economic role, as the Berbers have their farms in the surrounding hills. After a tea break, we will take a path to reach the source of Imi n Tala, in the deep valley of Amizmiz, passing through traditional villages.

You will take a short walk to the village of Tnirt where you will have lunch in one of the traditional Berber houses.

Then you will continue our visit to the great plain of Haouz, making an off-road crossing of the village of Ouled Mtaa, inhabited by nomadic Arab tribes originally from the Sahara. You will discover different villages, then you will end your excursion crossing the rocky desert of Agafay. You will have the opportunity to take beautiful photos and explore the desert landscapes of Morocco before returning to Marrakech
