    Morocco Itinerary: 2 days tour from Marrakech to Zagora desert

    Day 1:Marrakech - High Atlas Mountains - Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah - Ouarzazate - Daraa Valley - Agdz - Zagora (8 Hours' drive)

    The first day of your Marrakech to Zagora 2-day journey. Starts with a pickup by one of our native drivers from Africa North Journeys Agency. From your accommodation in Marrakech, we hit the road to the Zagora Desert. Passing through stunning landscapes that will drive you crazy. While crossing the High Atlas Mountains, we will make a short stop at Tizi N’T’ichka, a pass with an elevation of 2260 meters above sea level.

    Capture the wonderful view, and let’s continue to Ait ben Haddou Kasbah. Where you have the chance to discover one of Morocco’s ancient kasbahs dating back to the eleventh century. While exploring the entire Kasbah, discover the intricate Moroccan architecture. This location has served as the backdrop for numerous films, including Gladiator, The Mummy, Game of Thrones, and Lawrence of Arabia.

    After finishing your visit. We pause for lunch and then set off again towards Ouarzazate, whose name means in Berber “noiseless,” the city famous as the “Hollywood of Africa,” a city that a century ago was only a military settlement to be later one of the most visited attractions around the world. Thereafter, we move on to Zagora via Berber villages and the Daraa valley, the largest Moroccan oasis with the largest river in Morocco at 1100 kilometers.

    In the afternoon, we arrive at the Zagora Desert, where your camels wait to pick you up as you cross the dunes. Stop to witness the sunset, then continue to the desert camp. Upon arrival, we will welcome you with a mint teacup and dinner. Later, enjoy Berber drum music and watch the sunrise on your own before retiring to sleep.

    Day 2:Zagora Desert - High Atlas Mountains - Marrakech (8 Hours' drive)

    On the second day of your Marrakech Desert trip, two days start with an early wake-up to witness the magical view of the sunset over the front dunes of your desert camp. After packing your luggage and enjoying a simple breakfast, mount your camel and head back to the village to meet your driver guide.

    Upon meeting, I hit the road to Marrakech via stunning villages, wonderful sites, and spectacular landscapes. On the way, we will visit Ouarzazate’s Kasbah, called Taourirte, which means the hill in Berber. During French colonialism, the Kasbah belonged to the Glaoui family, a powerful and wealthy family. Unfortunately, the Kasbah suffered a disaster following the last earthquake that devastated Morocco in September 2023.

    After taking a picture in front of the Kasbah, we continue to Marrakech, crossing the High Atlas Mountains and the Tizi N’T’ichka Pass. Once in Marrakech, we drop you off at your accommodation at the end of your 2-day tour from Marrakech to Zagora.
