Although we can’t compare the Agafay desert to Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga, it’s a dry desert in Marrakech that is both relaxing and challenging. If you’re looking for a desert experience, the Agafay Desert is worth it.

Even though it doesn’t have the sand dunes of more conventional deserts, its rocky environment and proximity to Marrakech make it an appealing travel destination. The Agafay Desert in Morocco is unique because of its rocky landscape, golden-hued boulders, and undulating hills.

The desert is calm and quiet, and the chance to see spectacular sunsets and stargaze under the starry African sky is really special.

The Agafay day trip has lots of fun things to do like riding camels, going on hot air balloon rides, and having picnics in the desert.

If you’re looking for a desert excursion near Marrakech, the Agafay Desert is worth adding to your itinerary.
