What people are saying about Agafay Desert Camp

Really great experience you don't want to miss! Mohamed and everyone were fantastic. The food and sights were great. Riding a camel, seeing the desert, learning about berber culture and how argen oil is made were all great - so much packed into one day but never felt rushed. I highly recommend this trip - so easy with air con bus, small group, lovely driver and guide. You cant ask for more!

Lovely day in the Atlas Mountains riding camels and seeing the Berber villages. The day was well paced and everyone was very friendly. Our guide Mohamed was especially great, with lots of information about the history of Berber people. We finished with a delicious lunch on a rooftop within the mountains. Highly recommend!

Amazing tour guide, very energetic and very informative. Just wished he stopped by at the markets for some shopping. Other than no complaints whatsoever.

Great visit to do. The driver and guide are great. Provide sneakers all the same to go to the waterfall.

Had a very enjoyable day. Our guide Mohamed (potato) was amazing!
