Marrakech Agafay Desert Day Trip – Marrakech to Agafay Desert

Agafay Desert tours – Marrakech to Agafay Desert

The Morocco Agafay Desert is located 30 kilometers south of Marrakech city and extends over several hundred hectares. This rocky desert can be compared to a sand desert. Indeed, its white dunes rise up and the landscape resembles the dunes of the Morocco Sahara. In the middle of the desert is a surprising oasis, a haven of peace and tranquility, where fauna and flora can easily develop. In this paradise, frogs and turtles live peacefully in the wadis, surrounded by water and rocks. Lost in the dunes are still some Berber villages that continue to exist in this austere but sublime nature, A Morocco short trip will not allow you to enjoy the high point of visiting the Sahara Desert. But the feeling of life there is reproduced a little in the Agafay desert, This Marrakech Agafay Desert Day Trip offers you a relaxing day in the rocky desert with a magnificent view of the snow-covered mountains of the High Atlas and Enjoy A Launch in Lake Takerkoust Marrakesch. And even better, you will get an idea of the local Berber life in the Berber villages.

During the Marrakech Agafay Desert Day Trip, you will have the chance to explore the amazing landscapes of the rock desert, between Lake Lalla Takerkoust, south of the High Atlas Mountains. During our Marrakech To Agafay Desert, you will explore the unspoiled nature of an area of desert and debris. The landscape of the Agafay Desert is covered with wheat, barley, and flowers, but in summer and autumn, it looks like a real desert with flowing dunes and, as a bonus, majestic snow-covered High Atlas mountains in the background. In spring, Agafay offers wildflowers among flora and fauna that make it a wonderful panoramic desert experience.

The Agafay desert is quite bland compared to the more popular sahara desert experience at Erg Chebbi sahara dunes or Erg Chigaga desert but you need a minimum of 3 days and 2 nights for that trip.

Agafay Desert Day Trip from Marrakech

 the day trip from Marrakech to the Agafay Desert will allow you to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside, Lake Takerkoust, and the Agafay Desert. The itinerary is shaded by lush vegetation, olive, and orange orchards and passes through the occasional village of Ait Imour from where we will leave the road and cross a completely different landscape of stone desert, light brown arid plateaus, Bedouin villages, oases, and then high hills with panoramic views of the High Atlas. A few hours later, small spots of green will start to appear and soon after, you will be back on the asphalt road lined with old eucalyptus trees. You will arrive at the edge of the lake Lalla Takerkoust built like a dam where Marrakech draws its electricity. Through small hills along the dam, you will reach the valley of Nfis by passing through Berber villages and arriving at a Berber family house. You can visit the house and have lunch inside. After lunch, you will have the possibility to make a 2 hours hike with Saida or Hamid and to climb for one hour to visit one of the oldest villages at the foot of the largest forest in the Atlas. After visiting the traditional olive press, you will descend between olive trees and terraced fields to the only house next to the river Nfis, from where you will continue your journey to Ouiragan through the forest and traditional salt pools before arriving in Asni, a small town (market on Saturdays) overlooking the Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. You will then pass through the gorges of Moulay Brahim, the Ghighaya valley, and Tahanouete before arriving in Marrakech.
