In Agafay desert day trip you will have the chance to explore amazing landscapes of the stone desert. Agafay desert is located just at 30 kilometers southwest of Marrakech between East Lake Lalla Takerkoust, South of the High Atlas mountains. During our Agafay desert day trip from Marrakech you will explore an unspoilt nature of a desert and scraps area. The Agafay Desert's landscape is coverd with wheat, barley and flowers however in the sumer and autumn months it looks similar to the real desert with flowing dunes and the bonus of majestic snow-capped high atlas mountains views in the background. in spring Agafay offers up wild flowers among other flora and fauna which makeit a scenic and a wonderful desert experience.
Please note that 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.
