This experience takes place in Agafay Desert; just 45-minute drive southeast of Marrakech. Agafay is a stony desert with splendid views of sand dunes-like hills, which will allow you to enjoy a dramatic sunset Marrakech view while sipping a cup of mint tea.

  • Dress like Touaregs in a blue facial scarf and robe
  • Climb to a viewpoint to enjoy the sun setting over the horizon
  • Taste a cup of mint tea in an authentic cozy setting
  • Take amazing photos of your party riding camels with the sunset as a backdrop

Day Trip Itinerary

Half Day : Marrakech - Agafay Desert

Meet your driver at your hotel/riad and start 45 minutes southwest of Marrakech across olive and orange farms to Agafay desert. Upon arrival, meet your camel caravan, and get dressed like a nomad in a blue robe and a headscarf. After taking some photos with the new outfit, and getting introduced to your camel, start an hour camel ride across the amazing landscapes of the arid terrain which might contain green vegetation during a rainy spring season, but the views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains in the horizon is splendid. Just in time for sunset, make your way to a high plateau where you will enjoy a cup of mint tea while watching the color-changing sunset on the horizon. Just before it gets dark, join your driver back to Marrakech for a drop-off at your hotel/riad, or a location of your choice in the city center.
