In the middle of the afternoon we arrive at the door of the desert of Zagora, where we will leave the 4×4 and we will ride the dromedaries that will carry us through the desert to spend the night in tent in the middle of nowhere, there we will have dinner and sleep, but before sleeping we will be able to enjoy the tranquility and the blanket of stars that the desert offers us.

We will get up early to be able to contemplate the beautiful dawn that the desert offers us and ride our camels back to the riad for a good shower and a typical breakfast Moroccan.
Our route continues to visit the village of Tamegrout; known for its green ceramics and its narrow streets that make it a labyrinth of tunnels.
We will continue our tour to the Draa Valley and the Oasis of Tamnougalt, we arrive at the village of Agdz (famous for its Kasbah) and then we will continue our route arriving late in the evening in Marrakech where you leave in your Riad/ Hotel.
