Full description

The adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Marrakech or the closest accessible point to your accommodation. Head south towards the vast Agafay Desert, admiring the changing landscape along the way as the city gives way to luscious greenery.

Arrive at the large village of Imlil located at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, then pass through the incredible Kik Plateau.

Next, embark on a 30-minute camel ride and soak up views of the surrounding landscapes. After your ride, enjoy a relaxing tea break and learn about local Berber culture, as well as their traditions, history, and way of life.

Pass through several Berber villages on your way to the Amizmiz Valley, then arrive at Tinirt Village where you can have lunch at a traditional Berber house.

After lunch, continue the tour to the Great Plain of Haouz, passing through the village of Ouled Mataa which was originally inhabited by Bedouin Arab tribes from the desert.

The day ends with a tour of the Agafay Desert, where you can take incredible photos for your holiday album, and marvel at the rugged Moroccan landscape that surrounds you. After an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Marrakesh, arriving back at your accommodation.

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids. We really enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Mustapha(Mustafa) was a wonderful guide. His English was really good to explain us everything about the places we visit. He even helped us with our kids when we had a long walk. Camel ride was very nice. We had so long walk we were exhausted but very happy. My kids are 8,6 and 3years old and they were so happy. Kids enjoyed the tour. Hotel pick up and transportation were great. I got all the information messages before tour starts. Thank you for this lovely day trip.

The activities on this itinerary were excellent, a great way to get immersed into Berber culture and view Marrakesh’s countryside. Our guide Youssef was an excellent host from start to finish, lighthearted and pleasant to interact with, he gave great recommendations along the way and made the whole experience quite enjoyable - I thoroughly recommend it!

Overall the trip was really nice! Great group dynamic and our tour guide was very enthusiastic! Good energy! We also had a delicious lunch and learned a lot about the Moroccan culture. However we felt like we did not have enough time to explore all the places we went to. For example, the camel ride and dessert trip lasted less than an hour and we thought that would be the main part of the trip. Most of the tour was up on the Atlas Mountains. Even though that was very nice to visit, we had different expectations of the day. Besides this, we had a good time and would definitely recommend!
