Embark on a journey in Morocco’s desert oasis and taste the elixir of the Bedouins of Zagora.
Zagora is one of many desert outposts on the southeast of Morocco and prized as “the gate to the Sahara.” Through layers of natural oases and urban settlements, Zagora opens a passageway into endless dunes. The authentic Bedouin life is still existent in the region. At first glance, you will see a typical desert town with Moroccan-style sandstone houses and a vitalizing grove of palm trees. But Zagora has much more to offer on the sand fields, where epic sunsets and the nomadic culture reveal the meaning of life.
The desert camps of Zagora are famed for their high spirits, making it the top accommodation in the Sahara region. With camel rides and biking tours, desert exploration comes with a guaranteed dose of daytime adventure. At night, you will find yourself wrapped up in an ambient celebration of food and music. From rustic diwans to the evening gatherings around the fire, the Berber tradition dominates every part of the camps. More of the gripping cultural experience awaits in the historic kasbahs and date plantations around the desert. Zagora’s centuries-old favor as a crossing point of trading caravans and Bedouin tribes is now an influential element that helps preserve the local culture by attracting curious travelers to the region.
