Want to discover the lunar landscapes of the famous Agafay desert 45 minutes south of Marrakech during your stay? Dunes & Désert welcomes you in its brand new local base Camelback located in the heart of a magnificent oasis in the heart of the Agafay desert !!
Built with 90% natural materials (mud, wood, stones), our new Agafay base offers you an exceptional welcome for all our activities from this stone desert.
Indeed, your day begins and ends in this new space provided for the reception and relaxation of our customers. You can refresh yourself there, go to the toilet, visit the camels in their enclosure, taste the famous Moroccan tea accompanied by delicious pastries… And even taste a delicious tagine or couscous depending on the activity you chose!
From this new base, you will have access to the following activities:
– Camel ride in this lunar landscapes, dressed in the traditional cheich of the nomads, with a view of the Atlas mountains. An unforgettable experience for the whole family! Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult and share their camel (they therefore pay half the price). For all our camel excursions, we advise you to wear comfortable clothes, not too tight, and warm in winter. It is recommended to wear closed shoes (no flip flops) and long pants (avoid shorts and short skirts to respect local customs). Think sunscreen in the summer, or wear a long-sleeved top to prevent sunburn. Camel rides are possible all year round.
– Quad ride: our guides will take you on tracks completely forgotten by tourists in the Agafay desert. You will zigzag between expanses of dry land and arid hills that stand out against the sky like dunes. You will even cross abandoned Berber villages. There are trails for all levels, so this is the ideal circuit for a day with family or friends (also for children). The advantage with the quad is that you can have fun in all weathers! It’s as fun on dry land as it is in mud. Our tours are accessible all year round, and several slots are offered per day: morning, afternoon, full day…
– Buggy ride: enjoy a moment of pure adrenaline on the rocky hills of the Agafay desert! These two-seater vehicles are perfect for slaloming between the different obstacles that you will encounter by following our professional guides! Our buggy rides are open to all levels: whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will inevitably have a great time exploring our tracks located far from known tourist trails. We own 5 buggies, model Yamaha Wolverine 700-R, all in excellent condition. With a 708 cc single-cylinder engine that is as pleasant to drive on flat as uneven terrain and with peaks of 85 km/h in mountainous terrain, this racing car will offer you adrenaline and safety. Our buggy rides are available all year round, because we have as much fun on dry ground as in mud. You will have the choice between several formulas: full day, half day or even combined with camel ride.
– You don’t want to choose between two activities? The “combo” is for you! Choose our combined quad + dromedary or buggy + dromedary activities and enjoy two activities on the same day! Enjoy a lunch break to die for (tagine or couscous) in the middle of the day. The “combo” is really the perfect activity during a stay in Morocco, perfect for the whole family or a group of friends!
– New: we also offer a camel ride in the Agafay desert on a PRIVATE tour. Arid hills in pastel shades against the backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. A real postcard! Experience the magic of the desert caravans that once traveled these same paths between the Sahara and the Atlantic for a ride… A must try!
