Little Desert & Off Road Adventure

 On this exciting 4x4 tour we head south from Marrakech to the Agafay Desert (also known as the Marrakech Desert due to its closeness to the Red City). Within an hour of leaving the city you'll arrive in a surreal landscape of rolling stone plains, contorted river valleys, lush palm-lined oases and steep sandy summits. Stop for wonderful views of High Atlas Mountains ,  see villages and learn about Berbers and their culture. Drive off-Road on a Quad -bike or buggy to explore this fascinating area. Head off-road to narrow valleys that shelter traditional Berber villages. Discover the Nfis Valley, hike to a nearby village for lunch in a local home, and wind along isolated tracks towards the Asni Village and back to Marrakech.
