2 Days Marrakech to Zagora Desert Tour Highlights & Inclusions

It’s an authentic fascinating tour that heads out towards the Sahara desert with one night in the camp (Berber tent). Zagora Sahara desert is beautiful with small sand dunes.

Zagora feels very much like a border town, fighting back the encroaching desert, with its lush palms. Even though it is modern and largely unappealing, it does have its moments, particularly when dust storms blow up out of the desert and the light becomes totally surreal.

The spectacular jebel (mountain) Zagora, which rises up across the other side of the river Draa, is worth climbing for the views.
The Draa Valley is the largest valley in Morocco reputed for its palm trees and crossed by the Draa River, falling into Tantan.
This tour is for 2 days and 1 night staying in a Berber tent in the Sahara Desert.
