Bivouac sous les Etoiles

Located around 35km from the Algerian border in the extreme south-east corner of Morocco lies M`Hamid, gateway to the desert. " Bivouac sous les Etoiles " organizes visits or touring treks. These treks will familiarize you with an area steeped in local traditions, magnificent landscapes whose beauty is surpassed only by their size, where the people are friendly and open.

We booked the classical 48-hour tour from Mhamid: 1 day by camel in a bivouac and 1 day by 4WD to Chigaga. Hamza and the two camel guys were really helpful, always willing to share interesting stories about Berbere culture and cooking delicious meals! :) Would recommend 100%!

Tinfou Dunes

Reviewed By Vanessa P - London, United Kingdom

I have seen bigger dunes when kids play with sand, nothing like the dunes shown in the pictures. Very disappointed as the rest of the group. I think if you really want to see real dunes is better to pay a visit to Merzouga. Where we stay was very close to Zagora, we can even see the village. However, the night at the dessert and the bedouine camp was really nice and cool.

Musee des Arts Et Traditions de la Vallee de Draa

Reviewed By Paul S - Baltimore, Maryland

Surprised us greatly to find this out of the way museum hidden in a mud kasbah outside Zagora. Some kids had to fetch the old man gatekeeper to let us in, and we were overwhelmed with the stores of fascinating objects showing the life of the Berbers in the Draa Valley. Every aspect of their life is covered and described carefully in French and English as you meander through the old mud rooms on 3 floors. A complete birthing room, wedding outfits, tatooing tools, medicines, farming tools, etc. You name it and they have it. Fantastic collection of antique jewelry, guns, daggers, and ordinary household items held our interest for several hours. Three weeks in Morocco and this stands out as one of the best museums we visited.

Zagora Markets

All kinds of goods from food to silver jewelry to firewood are for sale at the open-air markets.

Reviewed By Shiput99 - Schwyz, Switzerland

It's nice to experience a market which is adressed to locals but not to the tourists - and you can buy almost everything there, including useful souvenirs.
