Marrakech: Agafay Desert Quad Bike, Camel Ride, and Dinner

1. Marrakech: Agafay Desert Quad Bike, Camel Ride, and Dinner

Your day will begin as your professional driver meets you at your accommodation or a meeting point. From there, enjoy the air-conditioned drive as you pass through natural areas around Marrakech, learning more about the area from your bilingual and professional driver. As you arrive you will be welcomed by your crew who will talk you through how to use an ATV. Once you're fully versed in using your machine, you'll begin by following your quad-bike guide who will take you to see some of the stunning landscapes around the desert of Agafay. On the way back you can get some rest and take some pictures accompanied by Moroccan tea, before you meet a local camel guide who will take you on your next adventure. You will have the opportunity to dress in the traditional clothing of the Nomads, before you depart on camel back to catch the beautiful sunset over the big rocky desert. The camel ride will take you to the top of a plateau, where you can enjoy a special moment taking some artistic photos with your camel in the fresh desert air. You'll then hop back on your camel to take the return road with your local guide. As you return, you will be met by some staff who will introduce you to Moroccan gastronomy. This will also be a moment to enjoy the beautiful landscapes and the natural weather at Agafay. Your experience will eventually end with your driver returning you to your accommodation.

What people are saying about Al Haouz

We did the cooking class together as a couple and were lucky enough to stay as a couple. As far as Imlil (valley) we traveled with another group who had booked another tour with the same provider. This allowed us to visit an argan oil factory and have a delicious breakfast there. Afterwards we went to Imlil, where Hamid, our guide for the course, picked us up, took us shopping and took us to a small village where the beautiful riad was located. On the way we talked a lot with Hamid, he told us about his life and the everyday life of the Berbers. When we arrived at the riad, a nice young woman welcomed us, with her we then cooked our tagine step by step, prepared a salad and learned how to prepare the typical Moroccan mint tea. Two very interesting and warm people. It was a great pleasure for us to spend the day with them! An absolute recommendation for everyone! :)

After 1 hour of driving we arrived in the desert where we directly mounted our quads. The duration of the trip is respected and the guide is good advice for our conduct. We then stopped in a small sofa corner on the road with a very nice view to drink tea and enjoy some cookies. We also took the time to take several souvenir photos. After returning with the quads we continued with the ride on the camels with our guide Othmane! Between laughter and good humor we had a superb walk at sunset and even tested some acrobatics on the camels. Our driver then dropped us off at our camp to enjoy a delicious dinner in the middle of the desert. After this good dinner we returned with our driver who was waiting for us around 11 p.m. with a smile and lots of beautiful images in mind.

Despite the fact that we had problems with the pick-up point, they sent us to pick us up in a private transfer and took us directly to the desert. The treatment was unbeatable at all times! They let us organize the excursion to our liking (first we did camels, then rest, quad, more rest and finally dinner), totally at our own pace and in a very relaxed way, which made it very special because we were able to enjoy the surroundings a lot, that was spectacular!

Fantastic experience, quad bike ride, camel ride, sunset aperitif and desert dinner at a lookout point. All the people we met, from the driver, to the quad and camel ride guys, were wonderful, attentive, funny, friendly and helpful. An afternoon and an evening that were worth three days of travel for the wealth of experiences and emotions.

Very nice excursion in the Agafay desert. The guides are very friendly and good photographers! The walks seem a little shorter than announced in the description. The highlight of the evening, dinner in the desert at sunset! An exceptional moment!
