This Marrakech To Agafay Desert provides a peaceful day in the stony desert with a beautiful view of the snow-capped mountains of the High Atlas. Additionally, With the Marrakech Agafay Desert Day Trip you will get an understanding of Berber life in the Berber communities.The Agafay Desert in Morocco is situated 30 kilometers south of the city of Marrakech and covers several hundred hectares. This rocky desert is similar in appearance to a sand desert. Indeed, its white dunes soar and the scene is reminiscent of the Moroccan Sahara’s dunes. In the midst of the desert is an unexpected oasis, a sanctuary of calm and tranquillity conducive to the development of fauna and flora. Frogs and turtles coexist happily in this paradise’s wadis, which are bordered by water and rocks. Some Berber settlements remain hidden among the dunes, surviving in this austere yet beautiful environment. A brief vacation to Morocco will prevent you from experiencing the high point of seeing the Sahara Desert. However, the Agafay desert’s sense of life is eerily similar.

Marrakech To Agafay Desert 1 Days is accessible every day, with departure from your accommodation and traveling through the Atlas Mountains to view and enjoy the finest of Morocco’s camel trek and desert activities.
