Night at Agafay Desert
Would you like to spend a unique evening during your trip to Marrakech? You'll stay overnight in a haima under the stars in the desert of Agafay and enjoy the magical sunrise over the dunes.
Night at Agafay Desert
At the appointed time, we'll pick you up at your hotel or riad in Marrakech and we'll start a fantastic trip by minibus to the desert of Agafay.
After an hour's drive, we'll venture into the arid landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and arrive at the camp where we'll spend a very special night. Once we arrive there, we'll find a set of luxury haimas where we'll be welcomed with a cup of tea.
Then you can choose between a camel ride in the dunes of Agafay or staying at the camp to watch the sunset. Either way, you'll be able to enjoy the wonders of the desert.
Later, we'll sit around a campfire to enjoy a Moroccan-style dinner, consisting of salads, chicken tajine, vegetable couscous, and dessert. And not only that, but we'll also enjoy a traditional show - belly dancing, fire-eaters, Gnawa music will be part of the evening's entertainment.
After dinner, we'll retire to our haimas to rest until the next day, with the tranquil desert and a blanket of stars surrounding us.
And the following day we'll enjoy the most unforgettable view of the desert - sunrise. After taking in this breathtaking scenery, we'll enjoy an Amazigh breakfast and then we'll start our way back to your accommodation in Marrakech. We'll arrive there at 11 am.
