Full description

Embark on an extraordinary excursion to the seductive Agafay Desert. Get picked up by your driver from your accommodation or the nearest meeting point 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 the camp and check in to your tent for a warm welcome of tea and some delicious Moroccan pastries. Take time to relax and marvel at the magnificent desert landscapes. If you have selected one of the add-on activities — a camel, quad, or buggy ride — they will start in time to experience the sunset during them. 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 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.

We had an amazing experience at The Original Camp. From te moment we arrived right up untill the moment we left, everything was fantastic. We did a buggy ride upon arrival in the Agafay Desert which was great fun. This was followed by a delicious meal along with live music entertainment. After this we sat at the campfire, meeting fellow travelers, admiring the vast expanse of darkness around us and spotting the stars. The accomodation was well equiped and the breakfast served to the tent was also top notch. Guiding us through all this was the every-friendly and hospitable owner who was happy to share her stories on building up the camp and it's plans for the future. I would greatly recommend everyone who is visiting Marrakech to visit this stunning place. If possible I too will be back!

I went on the overnight stay solo, and it was one of the most peaceful and culturally enriching experiences. The hosts and performers set up a welcoming mood with moroccan mint tea and music. The food was phenomenal consisting of chicken tagine and healthy selection of vegetables. The special performance with fire spinning were one of my best shots for photography, and at night, you can visit the nearby hill to gaze at the stars. Room was lovely as well.

This was an amazing cultural experience. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The evening activities consisted of food and music which was great. The set up was amazing with candles, comfortable places to sit etc. The highlight was sitting under the stars at night in the desert which was unforgettable.
