The Agafay Desert

"The quieter you become...the more you can hear"

The Agafay Desert is Marrakech´s hidden surprise, a rocky desert of some 200 kilometres just a short drive from the city. It offers a diverse day excursion in a 4x4. In spring it explodes into life with wildflowers for just a few short weeks after the rains have passed its way. With a backdrop of the majestic High Atlas it is an exceptional landscape. At the far end, you can stop and have tea or lunch in the lakeside village of Lalla Takerkoust. Activities there include, horse riding, quad biking, camel rides and jet skiing as well as seasonal paragliding from nearby Aguergour.
