Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

2. 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.

Amazing experience, saw the Atlas Mountains, complimentary camel ride, was a full day rather than a half day so would be mindful of that. We paid separately for the Atlas Mountains tour which was wonderful, went up to the mountains, was shown how they make argan oil, had a camel ride. We did all of this again with the cooking class, but instead of going for a hike we went to a tiny mountain side village where a very kind man welcomed us into his beautiful home, with a huge terrace that you could see for miles from, absolutely stunning. He showed us how to make the traditional meal of tomato and cucumber salad with orange, and the delicious chicken tagine. We had this meal several times in Marrakesh so was fantastic to come home and cook it for our family! Also showed us how to make the mint tea, took pictures and videos of us cooking, was so wonderful, and chatted with us whilst we ate but also left us to enjoy. Amazing experience, incredibly beautiful day, and the most gracious host!

Mustapha has been an amazing tour guide. He knows the area incredibly well, seemingly knowing and being friendly with every local we went past. Which allowed us to meet so many friendly faces along the way. I went with another friend both 24 years old, he was always cautious to make sure we were going at a pace which was comfortable for us all. We stopped and rested along the way with Abraham making us some incredible food, local and fresh! No shortage of mint teas to keep us hydrated and happy! Mustapha was always happy to answer any questions we asked giving us a lot of valuable insight into the local area. We sang together up on the mountains and through the valleys, with jokes all the way through. I'm vegetarian and had no shortage of food to keep us energised and full. Musafa found a great spot for us to swim at the end, which was much needed after 2 days of hiking in the sun. Abaham joined us and made some incredible food! definitely go on this trip and ask for them both!

Zin is the best guide EVER! He was welcoming , hospitable and friendly with a huge smile from The beginning to the end. We walked for 2 days and went at my pace and he supported me throughout with patience as I was not used to walking in the heat ! We had plenty of breaks and he provided lunch on both days .. very talented ! We stayed the night at a Berber village where a delicious tangine was provided by the cook halid and entertainment fro both of them singing berbers songs and drumming their hands on the table ! ZIn is a popular person as everyone was chatting to him as we went though the Berber villages ! He was informative with the Berber history and their community and the people were so friendly . He was genuinely interested in my own culture politics and Scottish sayings!

Had a great experience with this 2 day atlas mountain trek! Our guide Abdul was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and we so appreciated having him with us for our trek. The transportation to and from Marrakech was seamless and before we went out Abdul thoroughly reviewed our route and details of the trek. The trek itself was very scenic and provided gorgeous views of Imlil valley as well as travel through several Berber villages. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the food throughout the hike cooked by Syed was delicious! A great experience and a highlight of our time in Morocco.

We had the best guide Lahcen and cook Mohammed. They were very friendly and made the best Atlas experience for us. Beautiful hikes, good food, good tea, nice accomodation. <3 See you next time!!
