There’s no need to spend days traveling to the Sahara to experience a sunset camel ride in the desert. On this half-day small-group door-to-door tour, travel to the stone desert of Agafay, less than an hour’s drive from Marrakech. Don Touareg costume, including a scarf around your face, then ride across the landscape to a viewpoint, sip mint tea with locals, and watch the sun sink below the horizon.

Highlights

  • Ride a camel across the Agafay Desert to watch the sunset
  • Enjoy an intimate experience in a group no larger than seven
  • Take it easy with door-to-door round-trip transfers
  • Wear a robe and facial scarf like Touareg nomads

Leave the bustling city of Marrakech behind and drive past lush vegetation, olive and orange orchards and through occasional villages. Off the tarmac and onto off road, the scenery is completely different - barren light brown plateaux, a true stone desert. The locals call it Agafay desert:  this might as well be the Sahara as the feeling of solitude. 

For all those who haven’t got sufficient time in Morocco for a Sahara desert tour, all the way south then the Agafay desert is the best thing to do instead. The Agafay desert is not a sand desert – but more sandstone and earthen plateau, traditional mud-built villages, dusty riverbeds are interspersed with spectacular sumptuous pasture and vegetation in springtime. There we can sample a tea with the locals and experience trekking by camel.

The team will collect you at your riad / hotel in Marrakech. There is less than one-hour drive to reach the stony Agafay desert. There, your camels will be waiting for you to make a lovely ride around an amazing landscape in order to reach your final destination: a gorgeous panorama where you will have the chance to stop for tea with locals and enjoy the sunset from there.

After, we will drive you back to Marrakech at the end of your tour.
