Stop At: Agafay, Agafay, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
About 20 km from Marrakech, the desert of Agafay is the big unknown tourist interest.
A large arid region with white ripples over hundreds of hectares, which could be taken for sand dunes but which are in fact a succession of whitish hills reminding our distant and inaccessible Erg. An amazing sight at the gates of the red city. On the way, the massif of the High Atlas stands out as a backdrop while we may meet here or there a muleteer or a small oasis where some families continue to occupy this land austere but so beautiful.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Plateau du Kik, Marrakech Morocco
Next stop at the slopes of the Atlas Mountains before you continue your drive through the mountainous tiny roads to Kik Plateau admiring the views of Berber villages scattered left and right.
