Tour From Marrakech To Zagora

Morning departure from your hotel or riad through the High Atlas Mountains and the famous Tizi -n – Tichka (2260m) From these mountains, the view of the valleys and the Berber villages perched on the sides of mountains, sometimes barely distinguishable from mountains themselves, are spectacular. After crossing the pass, it continues to fall until finally you reach Ouarzazate, where you stop for lunch. From there you cross another pass smaller, Tizi -n – Tinfifite, before reaching the Valley Dra’a to Agdez. We go along the path of the ancient caravans between the mountains and the river, passing through many villages and gardens so you can get a better idea of the way of life along the oasis. You then come to Zagora, where you will have a camel ride to watch the sunset and dinner in the dunes at the camp of nomad tents to spend the night.

Day 2: Zagora – Marrakech

If you get up early enough to see the sunrise, you will be rewarded by the beautiful play of shadows on the sand. After breakfast you will return to the north, taking another short path. From Ouarzazate, you leave the main road to Marrakech to reach the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. This Kasbah, the most famous of Morocco, was used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters and has been one of the most important strongholds on the ancient caravan routes of Salt, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from the sub – Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond. From there, continue along the new road to Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Lords of the Atlas, the family Glaoui, and now lies in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. The return in Marrakesh is located along the main road, which atraversa many Berber villages along the river crossed the mountains. Sometimes you go down in the valleys along the river, lined with oleander and fruit trees. The gardens are full of olives, walnuts, pomegranates, apples, pears and quinces. Berber women and children take care of goats and sheep and go up even the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood. We arrive in Marrakech in the early evening.

    Quando parti para Marrocos fui sem programa definido. Até que um azar se converteu numa descoberta. Um problema mecânico fez com que me cruzasse com o Yunes. Foram uns dias especiais, sempre bem acompanhado por este irmão do deserto. A atenção e o cuidado dispensados são uma constante. Obrigado por uns dias tão especiais! Até breve!:-)

    I am absolutely amazed with the treatment received by Africa Aventura during our stay in Morocco. Yunes has been not only a tour guide, but also a storyteller (he is an open book, you can talk with him of whatever you want to know), a waiter, a photographer, a mediator, a 24 hours personal assistant and a long etc. From the first day till the last one, he has accompanied us at every moment: In hotels: he has kept abreast of every detail, from reception, when he helped us to bring the luggage to the bedroom, to show us how to switch the air conditioned on, or even to give us towels at the swimming pool when we realized we had forgotten them. At meals: Yunes seated with us (we invited him to do so) like one more, but he was not relaxed like us because he was checking out that absolutely everything was perfect. If you needed something and the waiter was not close to asking for it, he stopped eating to bring you that thing. I remember when there were crepes to have for dessert and they were so delicious that I wanted to repeat. Then he gave me his. By the way, were couldn’t believe it when he took us to his own house where her mother cooked for us during the whole morning (the best cous-cous I have ever tried for sure). During transfers: Yunes came with us in our cars (we didn’t rent any) and he guided the route while explaining what the landscape offered. Also how people dressed, the differences between one looks and others, etc., etc. During activities: He organized everything too. He stayed even until the party in haimas reached his end just to make sure everything was okay (actually he was really tired because he wakes up at 4:30am to pray and then he never stops, but even that, he is always the last one lying down). At the time of purchases: Yunes took us to very good places, not only for the quality, but also taking in to account to whom the money was destined. To give an example, we saw many scarves shops, but he recommended us to buy them to a woman and her daughters, who started a kind of project to help the women involved. In definitely, Yunes has been the most incredible trip partner (I cannot say guide, it would not be fair) I have ever known. And now, I am sure I can say that a new friend has come into my life. Thank you Yunes, this trip without you wouldn’t be absolutely the same… Don’t ever change! You’re incredible!

    We visited Morocco last year and me with one of the representatives of Africa Adventures Yunes by chance. He offered to help us and we were a bit reluctant at first. I must say I am so glad that we took up his offer as a guide. He was brilliant, he took us to see places we would never have gone to in Morocco. I would highly recommend him.
