Full description
Explore the stony hills of the Agafay Desert on a 1.5-hour camel ride. Choose to begin your tour at a range of meeting points in Marrakech, or upgrade your experience to include pickup directly at your hotel or riad. After pickup, travel in an air-conditioned van with your driver for 45 minutes to the oasis starting point in the Agafay Desert. As you arrive, see the camel herd awaiting you. Once onsite, you'll be welcomed with an authentic tea before heading to the caravan. Meet your camel buddy and set off on your ride. Enjoy the experience atop a majestic animal that is one of the real symbols of the country of Morocco. A break in a welcoming local house will show you the local way of life. Soak up the good mood while staring at the Atlas Mountains; in winter, their snowy peaks will leave you breathless. After your ride, head back to Marrakech for drop-off in the city or at your hotel (depending on option selected).

An activity not to be missed! Support by the shuttle without problem, fabulous welcome to the desert, welcome tea, 1h30 of dromedary with a super nice guide who explained everything to us! Return with tea and a snack. We really had a magical time in the Agafay desert! Thank you

The road is pleasant because it allows you to see other landscapes and you cross different cities. The arrival in the Agafay desert is magical ... We were very well received by the manager and his teammates. The camel ride is pleasant and gives you a glimpse of the desert, its somewhat deserted dwellings. On the other hand, on Get your guide there is a photo showing the desert and the snowy atlas ... We, we only saw sand dunes ... no panorama on the atlas ... but the landscape discovered during this excursion is still very beautiful !! To do !
