Full description
Day One: Marrakech To Zagora
Depart at 7:30 AM to Zagora, located in the south of Morocco in the region of Souss-Massa-Daraa. Cross the beautiful high Atlas mountains via the Tizi n Tichka. Stop at the Ait Ben Haddou village for around 2 hours to discover its fortified kasbahs, which is a UNESCO World Listed Heritage site. With its damaged kasbahs, Ait Ben Haddou is the location that many movies producers have chosen for films including the Mummy, Prince of Persia, Gladiator, and Lawrence of Arabia.
After lunch in a local restaurant in Ouarzazate, continue to Zagora. Cross the Anti-Atlas mountains and pass by the Berber village of Agdez, with thousands of palm trees along the Draa Valley creating the largest date palm valley in Morocco. Arrive at Zagora in the late afternoon to start the desert camel trek over the sand dunes. Witness the incredible sunset. Arrive at the camp for dinner and see the most amazing starry sky whilst listening to the entertainment. 

Day Two: Zagora Dunes High Atlas to Marrakech
Wake early to see the first magical lights of the sunrise. After a traditional breakfast in the bivouac, ride camels back to Zagora to meet your driver. On your return to Marrakech via the Atlas mountains, spend free time in Ouarzazate and have lunch in a local restaurant.
