Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

2. Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

Discover and explore deep Berber country in the High Atlas Mountains, and enjoy the landscapes of desert, valleys, villages, and open plains on a full-day trip from Marrakech.  The drive takes you first to the Agafay Desert, just south of Marrakech, where you’ll experience some dune bashing before continuing on to the Lalla Takerkoust region, making your first stop on the hills overlooking the lake. From here you’ll begin a 4x4 adventure on dirt tracks rarely frequented by tourists and climb up to the Kik Plateau, where you’ll drive from village to village meeting locals, visiting Berber homes, and sampling their traditional mint tea and homemade bread.  When you arrive at Imlil Village, located in the heart of Toubkal National Park, you’ll have the option of hiking for an hour to Armed village or continue to the village by 4x4. The 1-hour hike with a local guide is of moderate difficulty. In the village you’ll be served a Berber lamb tagine for lunch at a local home. You’ll also enjoy Moroccan salads and homemade bread during the meal.  After lunch and a short relaxation break, you’ll head down a gentle hill to Imlil village, where you’ll meet your driver for the 1-hour trip back to Marrakech via the Haouz plains.

Amazing walking experience! We were a very small group and Mohamed B. adapts to your level. He puts a lot of good mood and attention to make sure you have a good time, and everything you need during the trek and the night in village. Very beautiful landscapes!! And way more than expected in terms of meals and snacks. I can only recommend these 2 days in the Atlas Mountains and would definitely come back one summer. Remember to take good (mountain) shoes and very warm clothes for the evening.

Mustafa our guide was extremely cheerful and welcoming - couldn't have asked for a better guide! Took us on a stunning 2 day walk through the Berber villages and explained everything clearly. Ibrahim cooked the most delicious vegetarian food for us, in vast quantities, and in beautiful locations. The guest house along the way was cozy and bedding was provided. Wished we could've stayed for longer by the end of it!

Guide Mohammed and Chef Saeed were amazing. Great food and Guide was patient with my low fitness level. He offered additional summit hike if you want and if you are fit enough. Met the friendly locals along the way and was touched by their humbleness and welcoming gestures. Loose gravel stones along the path so make sure you have excellent shoes.

What an experience! Can’t reccomend this trip or our guide Mohamed Bowajamor highly enough. The food was excellent and plentiful. Trekking was stunning and wasn’t too difficult, guide would walk at the pace that suited you. Incredible to walk through the traditional villages that have been there for hundreds of years and meet some of the locals

Our guide was Mustafa Faga, he was excellent :) we really enjoyed the hike. The views were spectacular! We walked through several Berber villages and learned about their culture. Would definitely recommend this trip!
