Road Trip to Zagora

Monday, February 24, 2014
Another reason why we picked Marrakech as our destination is because of the opportunity to take a quick trip to nearby places, like Essaouira or Sahara. Since our stay in Morocco was only one week, we could only manage two days road trip to Zagora (a Morocco's gate to Sahara desert), about 720 km away from Marrakech.

We were packed with other passionate travelers in a mini van and hit the road early in the morning. We passed through the gorgeous High Atlas mountains, visited Ait Ben Haddou, reached Zagora just before the sunset, and arrived at the desert camp to spend the night there.

At some point, it's a good idea to escape from the busy street in Marrakech and enjoy the slowly changed panoramic view from mountains to desert. It's also fun to observe the locals as we passed small towns or villages, especially in the golden hour.
