Ouarzazate & Zagora Desert 2 Day Private Tour from Marrakesh Itinerary

Day 1 - Ouarzazate, Tamnougalt & Zagora
  • You will be picked up from your hotel or Riad in Marrakech.
  • Leave Marrakech towards the desert, making plenty of stops along the way.
  • Drive the famous, French-engineered roads of the Tizi n’Ttichka pass. Then, zig-zag up through the High Atlas mountains to an altitude of 2260m.
  • Visit Ouarzazate, famous for its orange-red buildings and kasbahs, including UNESCO world heritage site Ait Benhaddou, the location of many Hollywood (and Ouallywood) movies.
  • Zig Zag your way along the Tizi-n-Tinififft pass at the height of 1,660m.
  • See the town of Tamnougalt, known for its 16th-century mudbrick fortified village and date palm oasis.
  • Arrive in Zagora, known as the gateway to the Sahara Desert. It was from this outpost, hundreds of years ago, that an expedition was launched to conquer Timbuktu. You can still view a sign near the town limits which says: “Timbouctou 52 Jours”, indicating that it will take 52 days by foot or camel to reach Timbuktu, Mali.
  • Take a 45-minute camel trek out into the foothills of the Sahara desert. (For those who do want to experience the camel trek, it must be booked in advance.)
  • Arrive at the traditional Amazigh camp, where you will spend an evening in the desert. Enjoy an authentic Moroccan meal, traditional music, and bonfire under a canopy of stars.
  • Sleep in the desert in your luxury Berber tent or return to your Riad in Zagora. Whichever you choose, bask in the remoteness of the location. (Dinner included)
Day 2 - Agdz, Marrakesh
  • After a good night’s sleep, enjoy a delicious Moroccan breakfast consisting of traditional Amazigh pancakes, bread, eggs, olive oil, jams, butter, and fresh fruit.
  • Visit Agdz, a little jewel of a town located on the old caravan route that linked Marrakech with Timbuktu. It is not visited by many tourists but is known for its crafts, carvings, and basket weaving.
  • Explore the beautiful Palmeraie just north of the town. This Palm Grove is filled with networks of irrigation channels and wells. It is an oasis of calm, filled with countless birds and trees growing fresh figs, pomegranates, and almonds.
  • Return to Marrakech in the evening.
