The desert is not so close to Marrakech, more than a hundred and fifty miles, and of course the Atlas mountain range sits in the way so the route to the Sahara at Zagara is seven hours drive. That makes a one-night excursion to the dessert a packed itinerary. Leave Marrakech at 8.00 am, drive down via Ait Ben Haddou stopping at its famous Kasbah then Ourzazate and on to Zagora. There are many options for lunch en route (not included). Arrive at your desert encampment before sunset. Enjoy a meal with your hosts in the local Taureg style. This evening meal is included in the excursion price, if you have special dietary requirements please tell your driver in the morning so he can call ahead to the camp.

Experience the majestic calmness of the desert and its unique night sky. If you wish you can get up early for the sunrise. After breakfast you will leave for the return journey to Marrakech. Your will stay in a traditional Taureg tented encampment. Standard tents sleep up to five people and if the camp is busy you may be sharing a tent with another group. Premium tents are more spacious and more attractively furnished, they sleep two people (double or twin are available) Please note this is not Luxury accommodation to the standard you will find in Marrakech. It is an authentic desert experience with warm and welcoming hosts in clean and comfortable accommodation. The tents are not en suite. All tents (standard and premium) share the camp facilities including toilets.
