Your trip to Morocco can be short and however it’s not always practical to make the journey all they way to the south. But since you are visiting Marrakech, the first touristic destination in the country, there is a rocky desert nearby called Agafay.
The Agafay Desert is an hour’s drive from the lively streets of Marrakech. The Agafay offers quite the contrast from busy Marrakech. It is a good option if you would like to gaze at some sand dunes and desert, but don’t have the time to travel all the way south.
Start your day trip to the Agafay desert and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing day . Then Stop for wonderful views of High Atlas Mountains , learn about Berbers (the natives of Morocco) and their culture, discover the local Berber life, see villages, visit a Berber home, you can also have a camel ride if you like.
