Marrakech Agafay desert
The Agafay desert is a desert which is located about thirty kilometers from the red city of Marrakech,. on the first heights of the High Atlas massif in Morocco. It is a reg that extends over several hundred hectares.
It is covered with stones and rockeries in a hilly environment made up of dunes with white and ocher tones.
Although the topography of Agafay resembles that of a typical desert, such as the Sahara, it is not a desert in the literal sense of the term. but rather a desert area of reduced surface
The Agafay desert includes an oasis of about seven hectares, planted with eucalyptus, olive trees and vines, nicknamed the enchanted oasis.
The Agafay desert is easily accessible from Marrakech towards the small town of Tameslohte (municipality) via the provincial road P2014
Morocco Ouzina Desert
Ouzina a seldom-visited desert destination known only to Sahara savants is located in Taouz. Here you’ll find a few Kasbahs in Ouzina, a small, tidy auberge with mercifully sand-free beds. At Ouzina the piste turns west toward the Draa Valley, heading 45km to Mharje village, where you can turn north onto a well-graded piste to Alnif, where it intersects with the tarmac road to Zagora. Otherwise, you could follow a bumpy piste from Taouz west towards the Draa Valley south of Zagora. Either way, the Taouz–Zagora journey takes at least seven hours, equipped with plenty of water, petrol, food, a spare tyre, a mobile phone and a Sahara-savvy guide.
Now Ouzina desert is the most silent Sahara and more wonderfull desert where the blue of sky meet the yallwo of dunes and the black of mountains..
