This excursion into the desert from Marrakech through the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate, the pearl of the south with its beautiful film studios; Kasbah Taourirt, the former Palace of Pasha Galoui, the river and the Draa Valley with its many kasbahs, the palm oasis that produces dates, famous village of Agdz and Zagora. The massive earthen structures that we see along the route are divided into houses that serve as homes for families in these villages kasbah where life continued unchanged for centuries.

Zagora is also known as “the door of the desert” and is the last town before the palm oasis where the road dissolves into nothing but sand and rocks that we dig through the sand dunes.
