Agafay Desert And Kik Plateau Day Trip
A full day multi-activity trip from Marrakech
True a vacation to Marrakech is just not whole unless you have ridden on a camel! and true Agafay Desert is a lot more atmospheric and amazing location to take a camel ride in it than in the city! but I think that its a waste of time and money and lack of vision to do just this there
This is why in the day trip to Agafay and kik plateau that we offer besides the “touristic” camel ride in Marrakech Desert you’ll also spend the day exploring the rocky terrain in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, and visit a number of villages spread across the desert and learn about the traditions of Berber life indoors and outdoors, with possibility to hike, before heading back to Marrakech in the evening.
Escape off the beaten track to discover this desert of stones that will remain as one of your beautiful memories of your visit to Marrakech.
A vast desert area located on the high Atlas plateaux, the Agafay desert is a fascinating and perfectly preserved natural environment which, despite its proximity to Marrakech, is still spared by mass tourism.
This Desert is Located about thirty kilometers from the ochre city, this unknown jewel extends over several hundred hectares on the first heights of the massif of the High Atlas. Its arid landscapes made of stones and rock offer an immense panorama punctuated by white dunes whose shape and color evoke those of the Saharan dunes of Erg Chebbi.
in this desert area of the southern part of Morocco, you will have the opportunity to see how the Moroccan peasants of this region live, and even share with them the great tradition of carefully prepared mint tea, after a camel ride
from there our next destination is Lalla Takerkoust dam located about forty kilometers from Marrakech, a little before the lake, we will leave the road for the track that will take us through beautiful plains and panoramas to discover the wonderful landscapes of the “Kik Plateau” .
The Kik Plateau is dominated by the chain of the High Atlas whose peaks are more than 4000 meters high. Magnificent panoramas on the Mount Toubkal, the Kik Plateau is located above Asni, it dominates in its center the Lalla Takerkoust Dam.
another hour drive through small hills along the dam you will get to Nfis valley through which our trip will continue to Ouirgane via the forest, traditional salt pools crossing Berber villages to get to the beautiful valley of Ouirgane, in this same valley a local guide will take you for about one hour to an hour Thirty touring the valley. After that, a Berber lunch in a local family house is served.
