A whirlwind 2 Days Morocco tour from Marrakech to Zagora, and beyond Itinerary
With unique exposure keep in mind that a trip to the Zagora desert tour can be disappointing as the Zagora desert doesn’t have proper and spectacular dunes in the same way that Erg Chebbi in Merzouga has and is more of a rocky desert.
The Zagora desert is not like other deserts you might have seen in pictures or movies. There are no massive, coral-orange sand dunes. Instead, the landscape is a variety of shapes and sizes. For this reason, we usually recommend a 3 days desert tour from Marrakech to the Merzouga desert.
But don’t let that dissuade you! The Zagora desert is still an amazing place to visit. The colors and shapes of the landscape are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. So check out the amazing itinerary and book your tour with us now!!
