We embarked on an incredible 2-day adventure led by our guide, Mohamed, and it truly proved to be a remarkable experience. While the journey involves a considerable amount of driving, the time and money invested are absolutely worth it. From the breathtaking Atlas Mountains to the enchanting Draa valley, the captivating Ounila valley, and the mesmerizing Sahara Desert – each destination left us in awe. It’s the real essence of Morocco, as we were told. A standout moment was the camel ride in the Sahara, an experience that felt incredibly special even though we were complete novices at it. Throughout the journey, we had the pleasure of meeting friendly and welcoming individuals who took exceptional care of us. They not only provided us with brilliant hospitality but also shared numerous suggestions for sightseeing, making us feel right at home. While having a bit of French can be helpful at the Berber camp, it’s not an absolute necessity.
The organization was fantastic! The driver was always on time, and the different stops were interesting. The camp exceeded our comfort expectations, and the camel ride was just the right length for a pleasant experience. The guides were warm and friendly. I highly recommend this activity.
The tour from Marrakech to Zagora desert was fantastic, but it was far too short! The drive is spectacular since it takes you through the Atlas Mountains with breath-taking views, but it’s 360 kilometres from Marrakesh and the route isn’t straight, so it takes about 7 hours. It’s enjoyable since you can stop a few times along the trip to see different sights, but I wish we had more time in the desert. We just stayed one night with supper and breakfast and rode camels to see the sunset and dawn, so it’s really evocative and beautiful, but for such a long journey, I would recommend at least two nights. The desert camp was well equipped, and the people and food were also fantastic.
Our desert tour from Marrakech to Zagora was just amazing. Reda was not only a fantastic driver, but also a thoughtful guide and a nice companion on our journey. He was able to provide us with a wealth of information on all of the places we visited, as well as making the ride simple and fun by pausing for spectacular picture opportunities and well-timed coffee breaks. Thank you very much, Reda!
My wife and I booked this excursion with Marrakech Desert Trips on our honeymoon. Hicham, our driver/guide, was fantastic! We were met in front of our Riad. And took us on a pleasant journey that included lunch and a visit to a Kasbah. Our host Ahmed went above and above after we arrived at the camp (via camel!!)!! He did, however, deceive me into believing the tea was Berber Whiskey!! In any case, it was a lovely cup of tea. This tour is highly recommended for all adventurers!!!
