From Marrakech: One Day in the Agafay Desert with Overnight

1. From Marrakech: One Day in the Agafay Desert with Overnight

Embark on an extraordinary excursion to the seductive Agafay Desert. Get picked up by your driver at 12:00 PM from your hotel or riad in Marrakech. Head to the beautiful desert of Agafay, less than an hour from the city and tucked just behind the Atlas Mountains. It is one of the world's most mysterious landscapes, composed of rocky terrain and Saharan dunes.  Arrive at 12:45 PM at the camp and check in to your tent for a warm welcome of tea and some delicious Moroccan pastries. Take time to relax and to marvel at the magnificent desert landscapes before a lunch of Moroccan salads and grilled meat, or a vegetarian option. If you have selected one of the add-on activities — a camel, quad, or buggy ride — they will commence after lunch so that they line up with the sunset. If not, enjoy free time to take in the calm of the desert. After sunset, a magical and unforgettable private dinner will be served. The menu will include a Moroccan soup, salads, three hot dishes, three kinds of Moroccan tajines, and a dessert consisting of seasonal fruits. Spend the rest of the evening by the charming campfire, gazing at the beautiful stars in the sky. The following morning, wake up for a hearty breakfast at the camp before heading back to Marrakech at 10:00 AM, arriving at 11:00 AM.
