Day 1: Marrakech to Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, then Agdz to Zagora.

  • 8 HOUR DRIVE

You will be picked up from your Marrakech hotel about 7:30 a.m. for your 2-day desert tour from marrakech to zagora. Sit back and enjoy the ride as you drive across the Tizi Ntichka pass (2260 m altitude) and several adobe Berber communities. You could even observe locals tending their goats! There will be a halt in the High Atlas Mountains where you may snap photos, stretch your legs, and have a cup of coffee.

When you arrive in Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, you will have free time to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site and its famed walled settlement. This town has served as a location for a number of Biblical epics, as well as a background for commercial and modeling photo shoots. If you want to accompany the group on a guided tour, there is an additional price of €3.00 per person. Following the tour to the Kasbah, you will have an hour for lunch at your discretion. From here, we will drive via Ouarzazate and into the northeastern Anti-Atlas Mountains to the oasis of Agdz.
