2 Day Desert Tour from Marrakech to Zagora Desert

The 2 Day Desert Tour from Marrakech to Zagora Desert and Draa Valley is a highly sought-after option among travelers seeking an authentic yet time-efficient desert experience. Zagora Desert Tour provides an excellent opportunity to indulge in the mystique of the desert, ride camels, and spend the night in tents, making it ideal for those on a tight schedule. Commencing in Marrakech, the tour takes you through the stunning high Atlas Mountains, providing awe-inspiring views of the Draa Valley and its lush palm groves. While en route, you'll have the chance to explore UNESCO World Heritage sites, go camel riding, and spend a night in a camp or beneath the stars. It's crucial to note that the Zagora desert varies from the Erg Chegaga Sahara desert in that it's rockier and doesn't boast large dunes.
