You can go here to take a glimpse of the majestic Sahara Desert. Its sand dunes, blooming wildflowers and barren land is like a mini Sahara Desert altogether. On the edge of this desert is the manmade Lake Takerkoust, which was built in 1929 to provide electricity to Marrakech and its neighboring cities. You can swim, sunbathe, jet ski, or pedal boat at the beaches near Agafay.

The Kasbah-town of Aït Benhaddou is located nearby at a distance of 30 km from Ouarzazate. This ighrem is the starting point of several excursions to the Sahara Desert via the valley of Draa River. This UNESCO protected site is a home to a thousand ancient houses that have borne witness to royalty, luxury, loss, and a rapid decrease in the area. Now only 3 families reside in the Kasbah. With the help of our native guide, you will get fascinating insights about the history of Aït Benhaddou. Several movies have been shot here including the Gladiator and Prince of Persia.
