Agafay Desert Glamping Experience

If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, head to the Agafay desert for an unforgettable night under the stars. 
Agafay lies in a desert that's only a 40 minutes drive from Marrakech. It isn’t sand dunes like the Sahara, yet layer after layer of rock dunes instill a similar feeling of remoteness and nothingness; only few hamlets and locals with their mud houses, which seem to slowly return to the adobe they’ve been molded from.

The Agafay Desert, the High Atlas, the Kik Plateau, Lalla Takerkoust lake – so many contrasts just in two days. Start with Ghighay Gorge, Asni village to Ouirgane, hike up into the High Atlas, have lunch with a Berber family. After all the lushness of the High Atlas, have a little bit of the Desert. Arrive in the Agafay Desert in the afternoon and, after settling in, have the most romantic candle-lit dinner under the starriest sky, out in the open. Ride camels and spend the night inside an adobe bungalow or white canvas tent.

Marrakech - Agafay Desert

We will start our Imlil day trip at 09 a.m. from Marrakech and drive south up the Moulay Brahim Gorges, and the Berber village of Asni, which is very popular for its weekly market every Saturday. Stop in Asni village and take a tour through the local weekly market of Asni, find your way through the crowd of the local Berbers, pouring from all the surrounding villages to exchange goods, animals and buy fresh vegetables, fruits and meat for their homes. We will take a small mountain-pass to arrive in Ouirgane, then enter in the canyons of the N’Fis Valley. A magnificent view of the surrounding area will be seen from the mountain-track. Arrive at a berber house, where we will stop for lunch. Continue to Takerkoust lake, built in the the French protectorate era. Lalla Takerkoust lac provides electricity to the region of Marrakech. It has also enabled the creation of a very pleasant artificial lake. Stop to stretch your legs and take some pictures before we continue to Agafay Desert. Arrive in Agafay Desert Camp and check in to your Tent for a fresh Mint tea with some delicious Moroccan pastries. After sunset, a magical and unforgettable private dinner will be served. The menu will include a Moroccan soup, salads, three hot dishes, three kinds of Moroccan tajines, and a dessert consisting of seasonal fruits. Spend the rest of the evening by the charming campfire, gazing at the beautiful stars in the sky.
