Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

1. Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

Discover and explore deep Berber country in the High Atlas Mountains, and enjoy the landscapes of desert, valleys, villages, and open plains on a full-day trip from Marrakech.  The drive takes you first to the Agafay Desert, just south of Marrakech, where you’ll experience some dune bashing before continuing on to the Lalla Takerkoust region, making your first stop on the hills overlooking the lake. From here you’ll begin a 4x4 adventure on dirt tracks rarely frequented by tourists and climb up to the Kik Plateau, where you’ll drive from village to village meeting locals, visiting Berber homes, and sampling their traditional mint tea and homemade bread.  When you arrive at Imlil Village, located in the heart of Toubkal National Park, you’ll have the option of hiking for an hour to Armed village or continue to the village by 4x4. The 1-hour hike with a local guide is of moderate difficulty. In the village you’ll be served a Berber lamb tagine for lunch at a local home. You’ll also enjoy Moroccan salads and homemade bread during the meal.  After lunch and a short relaxation break, you’ll head down a gentle hill to Imlil village, where you’ll meet your driver for the 1-hour trip back to Marrakech via the Haouz plains.

We were picked up from our hotel on time by our wonderful guide Abderrahim. He spoke excellent English and explained clearly what the programme was for the day which was as advertised. We particularly enjoyed taking the mountain road from the Agafay Desert area up and over into the Asni valley and the National Park. Abderrahim was full of local knowledge and his passion for his home area was evident. He answered all of our questions with great enthusiasm. We would highly recommend him to other travelers.

I enjoyed the tour a great deal! Our guide, Youssef was a very nice person and also a knowledgeable guide. He answered patiently at all our questions about the Berber culture and about the places we saw during the tour. The lunch provided in one of the Berber villages (Chicken tajine with vegetables) i can say it was the best tajine I had during my stay in Marrakech :) I have only words of praise for this tour! Best regards, Youssef! :)
