Desert Tours from Marrakech: Exploring the Moroccan Sahara
Morocco is a country of stunning contrasts, with bustling cities, rugged mountains, and vast stretches of desert. One of the most popular ways to experience the country’s desert landscapes is through a desert tour from Marrakech. These tours offer a unique opportunity to explore the Moroccan Sahara, visit traditional Berber villages, and experience the culture and traditions of the local people.
We’ll take a closer look at desert tours from Marrakech, what you can expect to see and do, and how to plan your own unforgettable desert adventure.
What is a desert tour from Marrakech?
A desert tour from Marrakech is a guided excursion that takes you from the bustling city of Marrakech deep into the Sahara desert. These tours typically last several days and include a range of activities, such as camel rides, visits to traditional Berber villages, and stargazing under the night sky. Depending on the tour you choose, you may also have the opportunity to sleep in a traditional Berber tent or watch the sunset over the sand dunes.
Where can you go on a desert tour from Marrakech?
There are several destinations you can visit on a desert tour from Marrakech, each with its own unique landscapes and cultural experiences. Some of the most popular destinations include:
Located in southeastern Morocco, Zagora is known for its expansive palm groves, stunning sunsets, and the iconic sign that reads “Timbuktu 52 days by camel.” While this sign is more of a photo opportunity than an actual distance, it is a fun reminder of the region’s long history of trade and commerce.
Located in the Erg Chebbi desert, Merzouga is famous for its towering sand dunes, some of which reach heights of up to 150 meters. Visitors to Merzouga can enjoy camel rides through the dunes, stay in traditional Berber tents, and experience the unique culture and traditions of the local people.
Known as the “Gateway to the Sahara,” Ouarzazate is a popular starting point for many desert tours from Marrakech. The city is home to several film studios and has been the setting for many Hollywood movies, including Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia.
What can you expect on a desert tour from Marrakech?
A desert tour from Marrakech typically involves several days of travel, with each day bringing new experiences and adventures. Here are some of the things you can expect to see and do on a typical desert tour:
Departure from Marrakech and travel through the High Atlas Mountains, stopping at various viewpoints along the way. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou, a traditional mud-brick kasbah that has been featured in several movies and TV shows.
Travel to your chosen destination in the Sahara desert, such as Merzougaor Zagora. Along the way, stop at traditional Berber villages and learn about the culture and traditions of the local people. Enjoy a camel ride through the dunes and watch the sunset over the desert.
Spend a full day exploring the desert, with activities such as sandboarding, visiting a nomadic family, or taking a 4×4 excursion through the dunes. In the evening, enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner and listen to live music around a campfire. (some activities availible in a private tour)
Wake up early to watch the sunrise over the desert before heading back to Marrakech. Along the way, stop at the Draa Valley, a scenic area known for its date palms and ancient kasbahs.
How to plan your own desert tour from Marrakech
If you’re interested in planning your own desert tour from Marrakech, here are some tips to keep in mind:
Decide on your destination and the length of your tour. Most tours range from 2-4 days, but you can also customize your itinerary to fit your preferences.
Make sure to pack appropriate clothing and gear for the desert, including sunscreen, a hat, and comfortable walking shoes.
Respect the local culture and traditions by dressing modestly and following the guidance of your tour guide.
Be prepared for long days of travel and occasional rough roads.
A desert tour from Marrakech is an unforgettable way to experience the natural beauty and cultural richness of Morocco. With so many destinations and activities to choose from, there’s something for every traveler on a desert tour from Marrakech.

The tour could not have been any more perfect. We loved visiting Morocco

Hospitality at its best!
I highly recommend Ali for his professionalism and his kind hospitality. He took great care of us during our recent trip to Marrakech - always with a smile and ready to help. You will surely not be disappointed with his tours!
Ali is simply the best!
Ali is the best of the best when it comes to hospitality in Morocco. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left - he was a constant person we were able to contact for assistance, advice, guidance, and friendship! Ali knows the industry and truly goes above and beyond to make sure your time in Morocco is as seamless as possible. Even after we had parted ways, he was always welcoming to answer our questions, offer advice, and even helped me figure out how to ship a rug home! Trust me, having someone like Ali in your camp can make or break your trip to Morocco. Would highly, highly recommend. Thank you Ali for truly the best service, we hope to be back sooner than later!
Great Experience, Superb Hospitality & Organisation
Ali looked after us so well from the moment we arrived very hot and sweaty, to the day we left he went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed. He gave us the low-down on where to go and where not to go in Marrakesh and provided information about the local customs. We loved our chats with him about Moroccan life. His warm and welcoming personality make him the perfect host and we thoroughly recommend him. We'll definitely make sure that we catch up with him when we're in Morocco again.
Spostarsi all’estero è sempre complicato ma il servizio offerto da Sunny Excursion è davvero di alta qualità. I punti di forza sono certamente la puntualità e l’efficienza degli operatori. Consigliatissimo
Ali is so helpful and so kind! He went out of his way to make sure me and my friend had the perfect time in Marrakech. Definitely someone you can trust! I am definitely coming again and booking excursions here!
All you need
I traveled to Marrakech last year (May 2018) with 3 friends and we met Ali there. His practical tips have been really helpful! This year (March 2019) my parents and another couple went to Marrakech and Ali organized for them a camel ride and a trip to the mountains. They loved the trips!!! The driver was really nice to them and always on time. They also book a private transfer from airport to riad. The driver was at airport with a panel saying their names when they arrived. Really good service 👍🏼
