We recommend Zagora Desert, also known as the Rocky Desert, as a must do experience for those of you who do not have the luxury of time (although with a private tour you’ll at least have the luxury of comfort), but would still love to have the desert tour experience. This 2 days, 1 night tour, includes sleeping in a desert tent, relaxing under the incredible desert night sky and riding a camel through the desert landscape.
Also, because this trip is the private option, you get your own private driver and transport, which means you have much more freedom and flexibility to do things at your own pace. You also get a private tent with bathroom, so you don’t have to sleep next to people you might not know and all guides are included in the price.
You get the opportunity to explore and discover a lot of new places in just two days. You will get to pass through the High Atlas Mountains, where you can view the stunning scenes of the Draa valley and its palm groves, as well as get to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou where many famous movies and series have been filmed.
Please keep in mind that Zagora desert is a rocky type of desert and only has small sand dunes, unlike the large sand dunes usual expected from deserts like Merzouga. To visit this desert, you need at least 3 days. Zagora desert is perfect for those of you who do not have the luxury of time but want a desert experience, and let’s be honest here, great holiday pics! Or for those of you who want to have a new type of desert experience.
