We Plan Morocco creates adventures in Marrakech and beyond. Agafay Desert is situated just 30 minutes from the Marrakech international airport. This luxury camp offers a relaxing natural experience in beautiful surroundings. There are 18 luxury tents that blend classic luxury, comfort and exceptional service to promise a safari for the soul! Literally untouched by development, the Agafay Dessert offers quite the contract from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
If you don't have time to traverse mountain passes, you can take an overnight trip to the Agafay Desert: a rough, dry, moon-like expanse 40km southwest of Marrakesh down the Route d'Amizmiz. This is a favourite playground for horse-riding, dune-gazing and canoeing on Lalla Takerkoust, a man-made reservoir. In spring wheat and wildflowers predominate; in summer and autumn it really does look like the desert.
