Marrakech desert tours 1 day is organized to Agafy desert. These tours allow you to see many things in just one day. You will see to the high Atlas Mountains, the sneaky road of Tizi N’Tichka, the verdant arc of Takerkouste Lake, and the market town of Amizmiz.
Please keep in mind that Agafay is a barren rocky plateau. The real desert with big sand dunes requires going to Zagora or Merzouga. The minimum of days required to visit Zagora are 2 days while 3 days are required for Merzouga.
Marrakech desert tours 1 day do not include camel ride and desert camping. The desert of Agafy is not like Zagora and Merzouga desert. It’s a rocky desert that can be likened to a sand desert. Indeed, its white dunes stand and landscape are similar to the Sahara dunes. If you have more time, we advise you to book 2 or 3-day Marrakech desert tours.
At 09 am, the Morocco Travel driver will pick you up from your hotel. You drive to Agafy crossing a route shaded by lush vegetation, olive and orange orchards. Next, you passe through the village of Ait Imour from where you will go off-road and driving through a completely different scenery of stone desert. You cross barren light brown plateaux, Bedouin villages, and Oasis.
A few hours later, you will arrive to the edge of the Lalla Takerkoust lake. Through small hills along the dam, you will get to Nfis valley crossing Berber villages and arriving to a Berber family house. You stop there to visit the house and to have lunch before you continue your travel. After lunch, you continue your tour to Ouiragan. You cross the forest and traditional salt pools before getting to Asni, a small town with a view on Toubkal. Then you will pass Moulay Brahim gorges, Ghighaya valley and Tahanouete before getting to Marrakech.
At Agafy, you can hike for 2 hours or three. You can also visit some of the oldest villages, Ouchefilen and Ardmen, in the foothill of Toubkal, the highest peak in Africa.
