Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

2. Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert Jeep Safari

Discover and explore deep Berber country in the High Atlas Mountains, and enjoy the landscapes of desert, valleys, villages, and open plains on a full-day trip from Marrakech.  The drive takes you first to the Agafay Desert, just south of Marrakech, where you’ll experience some dune bashing before continuing on to the Lalla Takerkoust region, making your first stop on the hills overlooking the lake. From here you’ll begin a 4x4 adventure on dirt tracks rarely frequented by tourists and climb up to the Kik Plateau, where you’ll drive from village to village meeting locals, visiting Berber homes, and sampling their traditional mint tea and homemade bread.  When you arrive at Imlil Village, located in the heart of Toubkal National Park, you’ll have the option of hiking for an hour to Armed village or continue to the village by 4x4. The 1-hour hike with a local guide is of moderate difficulty. In the village you’ll be served a Berber lamb tagine for lunch at a local home. You’ll also enjoy Moroccan salads and homemade bread during the meal.  After lunch and a short relaxation break, you’ll head down a gentle hill to Imlil village, where you’ll meet your driver for the 1-hour trip back to Marrakech via the Haouz plains.

What a fabulous 2day trekking! Sunny yet nice cool-breeze weather, beautiful view, and great exercise. Most importantly, this experience won't be possible without Marwan(who keep us safe) and Hussain(who feed us well). Marwan is friendly, welcoming, funny, protective, and engaging. Always checking up on us, making sure we are safe, and happy. Many life stories were exchanged and shared, learnt some basic dance moves, laughed a lot, ate walnut from the tree for energy booster...making the daily 6hr trekking fly by quickly. It felt we found new brother (from different mother). Lol.  Rest assured, you are on the safe hands if he is with you. All the best to you,Marwan and Hussain. Note: Bring rain coat for your trekking gear. We were lucky that the weather was nice since we weren't prepared. But may not be lucky if rain happens on your trekking day. Cheers!

We were picked up from our hotel on time by our wonderful guide Abderrahim. He spoke excellent English and explained clearly what the programme was for the day which was as advertised. We particularly enjoyed taking the mountain road from the Agafay Desert area up and over into the Asni valley and the National Park. Abderrahim was full of local knowledge and his passion for his home area was evident. He answered all of our questions with great enthusiasm. We would highly recommend him to other travelers.

I had a completely well organized trip from Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains and back. It really was a great time. I was lucky and was all alone. My tour guide Omar was very caring, always made sure I was fine and able to laugh with me. The tour itself is really doable. Very authentic accommodation in the mountains and the food is very simple but lovingly prepared. I will definitely be there again on my next trip to Morocco, but then for a longer tour. Many thanks for everything!

We got along very well with the guide Mustapha and Hassan and Omar as cooks. After the 2 days we discussed another tour over 6 days including Toubkal with Mustapha without any problems. Our cook and muleteer Abdul accompanied us there. The tour and our company is highly recommended. Amazing lifetime experience!

we did 2 days of hiking which Lancen Zin managed to make awesome. his good humor and his knowledge of the Berber culture allowed us to have a great time for our vacation.
