You have limited time for travelling to the Saharan sand dunes in southern Morocco. But you can take a short, alternative trip to the “Marrakesh Desert”, Agafay.
Your pick up from your hotel/riad at 9 am for the drive to Agafayless than an hour away.
The area is rocky, dry, moon-like desert offering unexpected and splendid views of the High Atlas Mountains, snow-capped in winter. It is a mineral universe only disturbed by a few flocks of sheep passing by in their search for grass and herbs.
In the middle of this desert lies an unexpected oasis, a place of calm and peacefulness. Here, even surrounded by such barrenness, frogs and turtles live and breed, whilst plants can also flourish.
In Agafay, we enjoy about a one-hour camel trek. And later we head off-road into the High Atlas Mountains forming a backdrop in the distance. We visit the man-made dam of Lalla Takerkoust, which supplies Marrakesh with water. Marrakesh relies on that snow each year to refill this lake. There is a great demand for water in this most popular city in Morocco.
We return to Marrakech, having enjoyed the purity and beauty of the mountains still untouched in large areas.
