A Day in the Agafy Desert

Known locally as the stony desert,  this is another magnificent setting for an unforgettable experience. Where the atlas impresses with towering landscapes that vary from harsh to lush, the Agafy is mostly made up of rolling dunes of what one might assume to be totally unproductive terrain. Incredibly, this has been tamed in parts and, if the weather has been kind to them, local farmers can take useful crops from this most inhospitable of lands. Again we will organise a driver and a guide for this trip and you will be taken out into the foothills of the atlas where you have some incredible views over the Lake Lalla Takerkoust before driving into the desert for lunch in a beautiful Oasis. There is the opportunity to walk through a dried up river bed to a Berber village where the guide can explain to you all about the local culture and possibly stop for a mint tea with a local family.

A whole additional dimension can be added to this trip by arriving or leaving the lunch stop by camel. Forget about the usual tourist trips around a car park in order to have your photo taken, this is the real deal and not necessarily for the faint of heart.
