2 Days trip from Marrakech to Zagora itinerary's overview :

The fantastic itinerary for a journey lasting two days from Marrakech to the Zagora desert will allow you to see and do some of the most important attractions in Morocco. In usual, when you first arrive in Morocco, you will begin your journey by exploring the high Atlas Mountains and traveling through the country’s iconic Kasbahs. You will, however, wind yourself participating in one of the most enjoyable things that Morocco has to offer, which is a camel ride across the sand dunes. In addition, we will provide you with the opportunity to spend the night in a traditional Berber camp in the heart of the Zagora desert.

The schedule for a two day excursion from Marrakech to Zagora:

Day One: Travel from Marrakech to Zagora via Ait Benhaddou :

Starting at approximately 8:00 am, we will pick you up from your hotel for the first day of our two-day trip from Marrakech to Zagora itinerary. The Tizi n’Tichka, a 2,260-meter-high mountain pass, is one of the highlights of our journey across the High Atlas Mountains. As a general rule, we will make a number of pauses along the way so that you may snap photos. Of course, our distinguished visitor is free to request any number of interruptions. A UNESCO world heritage site in Morocco is on our route to Zagora; this time, we’ll stop to see one of the walled towns. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the village’s primary attraction.

As a result, we’ll be driving to Zagora, where we’ll be waiting for you. In most cases, we arrive late in the evening, which allows us to ride camels and watch the sunset. We’ll ride the camel to our Berber camp in the desert, where we’ll set up camp for the night. Dinner, Berber music (drums), and stargazing are the highlights of this night.

On the second day, travel from Zagora to Marrakech via Ouarzazate :

Our last stop before returning to Marrakech is Ouarzazate. We’ll journey back to Marrakech through the High and Anti-Atlas mountains after our morning meal at the desert camp.

Today’s unique destination is Ouarzazate, Morocco. Atlas Studios is one of the most popular attractions in this awe-inspiring location. Here, renowned filmmakers from all around the globe have gone through and made their shots. In addition to movies like Gladiator and Prison Break, this region has been used to shoot episodes of Game of Thrones and Prison Break. We’ll have to go back to Marrakech when we’ve had our fill of this spectacular location. You’ll visit a lot of other gorgeous spots during our journey. You may ask your driver to make several pauses so you may take in the scenery and the majestic Atlas Mountains. Marrakech is the last stop on our two-day trip from Marrakech to Zagora.

The best experience of my life!

My wife and I went on a two-day trip with this travel service, and the views were spectacular and the people were kind and polite. Despite the little amount of time we had—only two days—the desert night was our favorite part of the trip. You’re welcome, and thank you for your trip to Morocco!

Where to go and what to see on a 2-day journey from Marrakech to Zagora :


The Atlas Mountains.


Our two-day desert excursion from Marrakech begins with a visit to the majestic High Atlas Mountains. This stunning landmark is a part of the well-known Atlas Mountain range, which stretches over the borders of three nations. First, we normally go via Tizi Ntichka on the way here. The latter is around 200 kilometers long, making it one of Morocco’s longest curving highways. In addition to passing by many Argan oil cooperatives, you will pass by a number of picturesque Berber settlements.

Toubkal, the tallest peak, is located in the High Atlas (4,167 m). The Atlas Mountains are not continuous mountain peaks but rather ranges that are divided by large plateaus. We’ll be making a number of stops along the route, most of them at scenic overlooks. One of the most interesting aspects of our nation is the Argan oil cooperatives. If you get the opportunity, you should see Moroccan ladies manufacturing traditional cosmetics.

Ouarzazate :


With no sound, or Ouarzazate in Berber. It’s a gateway to the Shara desert in the southeast of Morocco. As one of the most popular locations for filming in Africa, the city of Ouarzazate has a special place in the hearts of Moroccans. Popular films and TV shows including “Game of Thrones” and “Prison Break” were filmed here. One of the most convenient international airports for last-minute desert vacationers is located in Ouallywood, Morocco. The Atlas Studios are a typical stop on this trip. You may find a lot of unique locations where movies are filmed there. In addition, the Taourirt kasbah may be visited. Thami El Glaoui, a wealthy basha who controlled Marrakech in the past, commissioned its construction.

Ait Benhaddou : 


Morocco is well-renowned for its numerous fortified villages, known as ksours or kasbahs, which were originally built as a means of defense against invaders. Ait Benhaddou, a stronghold in Morocco, is the best-known kasbah in the world. You will most likely see and stop at this amazing location on a desert tour of Morocco. This picturesque town in Morocco is a perfect representation of traditional clay building techniques used across the country. Getting to this town involves fording a tiny river, the Ounila, which is one of the things that sets it apart from others. The villagers have cleared a path for you by placing rocks in it, so you may visit and learn more about their community.

The town of Ait Benhaddou is popular not just with sightseers but also with those in the film industry. Parts of many blockbuster films, including Lawrence of Arabia, Kingdom of Heaven, and Gladiator, were filmed there. In recognition of its exceptional value to humanity, it has been designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Desert of Zagora :


Having so many diverse tourist spots is likely what sets Morocco apart as a travel destination. Many vacationers set their sights on visiting the desert since it’s often regarded as one of the world’s most fascinating and unique landscapes. Spending the night in a Berber tent after a camel ride over the desert dunes is an unforgettable experience. Our 2 day itinerary from Marrakech to Zagora includes all of these activities and more. Zagora is the second most visited desert in Morocco, after Merzouga, and is thus a popular destination for many vacationers in search of a desert experience.
