Tour of the Agadir Desert
We have returned from a wonderful tour through Morocco’s interior to the desert of Merzouga. A journey with Youssef and Hamid, two amazing gentlemen that helped us spend some really happy moments. The hotels where we stayed and the restaurants where we stopped to eat were both excellent, and the night in the desert was wonderful until the news of the border closure due to the coronavirus put an end to our trip, and it was there that these people showed us their great kindness, offering us even their personal wifi data, since we were isolated in the desert, so that we could find flights back to Spain as soon as possible, as ours had been cancelled.
We had roughly 10 hours to go back to Marrakech, and everything went well for them. We would want to thank you for all of your help, and we hope to return one day to finish our journey. Thank you so much, and please accept my hug.

Overview of Destinations:
Desert of Merzouga:
Merzouga is a village in southern Morocco along the Algerian borders that is home to a high number of Berbers, the indigenous inhabitants of North Africa. It is around 500 kilometers east of Marrakech, Morocco’s most popular tourist attraction.
Merzouga is a renowned tourist attraction in the Sahara because it is literally “right there” in the midst of the desert. A short walk from the plaza where the lengthy bus stops will take you to a magnificent vista of the massive sand dunes on your right.
The beautiful Ouarzazate stands at the threshold of the great south, a breathtaking combination of oasis, kasbahs, and lush valleys. In a vast desert plateau that draws visitors from all over the globe. Ouarzazate has settled under the shade of its palm trees, leaving behind a rocky expanse battered by all of the Sahara’s winds. Ouarzazate and its surrounds give a wonderful natural environment for filming, attracting Hollywood’s finest producers and directors for years.
Despite the reality that archaeological research has exposed the existence of various cultures that could have lived in this region, in addition to a very old human occupation: stone engravings going to date back to prehistoric times have already been discovered, the region of Ouarzazate is still a mystery to historians.
Morocco is very well for its numerous Ksours or kasbahs, that were constructed in ancient times to protect the population of a certain region. Ait Benhaddou’s kasbah is the most well-known. When doing a desert tour in Morocco, you will most likely pass through and stop at this gorgeous site. This little village is a great example of Moroccan clay construction. The presence of the Ounila river in front of this area contributes to its peculiarity; crossing the river is required to enter the village. The inhabitants have put some stones along the walkway to enable you to reach and explore the community.
Ait Benhaddou is both a shooting site and a tourist attraction. This setting has appeared in various films, including Lawrence of Arabia, Kingdom of Heaven, & Gladiator.
