Full description
Day 1: Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou – Draa Valley – Zagora After getting picked up in Marrakech, head to Zagora. Your first stop will be Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. Discover this impressive UNESCO World Heritage site, a fortified village where only five families remain today. Next, head to the Draa Valley, where you can admire endless ksour (fortified tribal villages) and kasbahs (fortified homes for tribal rulers). At the end of the day, reach Zagora and watch the sunset on a 1-hour camel ride. To finish, enjoy an excellent dinner at a campsite in the Zagora dunes. Day 2: Zagora – Ouarzazate – Marrakesh Rise early to enjoy the magical sunrise in the dunes before sitting down for breakfast. Take a camel ride back to the starting point to begin your journey back to Marrakesh. Make a stop at Ouarzazate, aka the door of the desert, to see the Kasbah Taourirt, a citadel set against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, before getting dropped off in Marrakech.

The trip was a very good experience, both the driver who taught us everything and the people of the camp are a love, they treat you as if you were family. The food is a bit so-so but I think it's worth booking this tour! And the journey is long, so take good company

An excellent experience. The tents are very comfortable and clean. There were plenty of toilets and showers, all the staff very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend our guide (Muhammed), at all times he was very attentive and with excellent recommendations. He got us better prices in restaurants and shops. We highly recommend this trip

An experience of 10. The bus transportation was comfortable and not tiring at all. We stopped at various places to take photos and eat. The arrival at the camp is by camel and the Berbers are very attentive and kind to the animals. The dinner was perfect with a vegetarian option and the store was correct. There are common bathrooms and shops that include a bathroom depending on the price paid. The sunrise was incredible and the return exceptional. Our guide Moja and driver Omar were very friendly and hospitable.
