By Private Transfer
Duration: 3 hours
Traveling by private transfer is an excellent way to see, explore, and experience the stunning Agafay Desert. The earth-toned topography alongside the route gives way to snow-capped mountains in the distance, and the drive will offer many opportunities for you to ask your driver to stop so you can get out to take photographs.
You can also ask your driver to stop at Lake Takerkoust, a popular weekend destination for people living Marrakech to go swimming, boating, and sailing. For much of the rest of your journey you will have be passing through landscapes filled traditional Berber homes and villages, which you may like to stop and briefly explore.
You may also chose to ask your driver to take the slightly longer route through Asni, a small town with views that look out on Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. The town has a market on Saturdays.
