To get a true sense of the mystery and magic of Morocco, head to the ancient city of Ouarzazate in the breathtaking High Atlas mountains. Here you will find the true and authentic North African country you had hoped to experience while on Morocco desert excursions.
Ouarzazate — pronounced Warzazat — is so authentically Moroccan and redolent of everything you ever imagined about this colourful and exotic location, that you might be forgiven for thinking you had stepped onto a Hollywood film set. It’s a gorgeous, calm place of dramatic mud and straw buildings that really have stood the test of time, and it’s known as the Door of the Desert.
Ouarzazate is the ideal location for a Morocco desert excursion, and here at Desert Majesty we have designed a number of them to suit our guests’ tastes. You can choose between two, three and four-day trips out into the vast expanse of the Sahara Desert, and really get a sense of what nomadic desert life is all about amongst its unending vistas of rolling dunes.
Our expert drivers offer the best in rugged 4X4 transportation, providing a comfortable journey on even the most challenging of terrains. Desert Majesty Ouarzazate trips include accommodation — you will be staying at a luxurious tented site during your Morocco desert excursion, which will have everything you need to make your trip all the more memorable. We also provide for all your catering needs (excluding alcohol) during your trip into the desert, so that you have absolutely nothing to worry about and you can just soak up your wondering desert experience.
Because you can’t go to the Sahara Desert and not ride a camel, all our Morocco desert excursions from Ouarzazate include a once-in-a-lifetime camel trekking event!
