Agafay Desert Day Trip from Marrakech

A short trip to Morocco will not allow for the highlight of visiting the Sahara. But the feeling of life there is replicated a little in the Agafay desert, very close to Marrakech.  This day trip to the Agafay desert offers you a relaxing day in the rocky desert with wonderful views of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. And even better you can gain an insight into local Berber life in Berber villages.
