Full description
Embark on an extraordinary excursion to the seductive Agafay Desert. Get picked up by your driver at 12:00 PM from your hotel or riad in Marrakech. Head to the beautiful desert of Agafay, less than an hour from the city and tucked just behind the Atlas Mountains. It is one of the world's most mysterious landscapes, composed of rocky terrain and Saharan dunes.  Arrive at 12:45 PM at the camp and check in to your tent for a warm welcome of tea and some delicious Moroccan pastries. Take time to relax and to marvel at the magnificent desert landscapes before a lunch of Moroccan salads and grilled meat, or a vegetarian option. If you have selected one of the add-on activities — a camel, quad, or buggy ride — they will commence after lunch so that they line up with the sunset. If not, enjoy free time to take in the calm of the desert. After sunset, a magical and unforgettable private dinner will be served. The menu will include a Moroccan soup, salads, three hot dishes, three kinds of Moroccan tajines, and a dessert consisting of seasonal fruits. Spend the rest of the evening by the charming campfire, gazing at the beautiful stars in the sky. The following morning, wake up for a hearty breakfast at the camp before heading back to Marrakech at 10:00 AM, arriving at 11:00 AM.

We had such a wonderful experience. We had a personal driver pick us up from the airport and take us to all our activities. We did a camel ride, after which they took us to a great lunch followed by a beautiful oasis in the desert where we were able to swim. Once we got to our stay we were greeted kindly and had an amazing experience. Our stay was so comfortable and we were upgraded to a beautiful sweet as we were 3. The host was very personable and kind and greeted us in the entrance. All in all 10/10. Recommended if you come to Marrakesh

Our night away at the Agafay desert was the most incredible experience. From start to finish, we were looked after incredibly well, driven to each location and always looked after by the most friendly hosts. We spent the afternoon at the most beautiful pool side villa, and enjoyed an amazing lunch. We were offered a quad bike tour around the desert in the afternoon as an add on which was so much fun. Then we were driven to the Luxury Original Agafay Camp where we met Hammad, our super host, and watched the sunset. Hammad provided us with a luxury suite for our night's stay which was beyond expectation - shower, fridge, king size bed, air con, beautifully decorated. The evening included a three course meal, live music and entertainment. In the morning, we watched the incredible sunrise and ate a delicious breakfast overlooking the desert. 10 out of 10 experience. We could not recommend more. Thank you to Hammad and your team for giving us an unforgettable 24 hours.
