Trace the traces of Moroccan culture in the village of Oumnas, only a 45-minute drive from Marrakech. And be sure to visit the famous Berber Lodge. Surrounded by ancient gardens and olive trees, this authentic lodge will help you experience the village life of North Africa, with villas inspired by the Berber lifestyles, traditional earthen structures and thatch roofs.
Those who do not include the Sahara Desert in their travel plans due to its remoteness and harsh nature can set out for the Agafay Desert, 45 minutes from Marrakech. This is not a sand but a stone desert. However, the experience it offers is as impressive as the Sahara, especially for those who want to experience a desert. It is impossible not to be enchanted by the sky shining with star clusters in tent camps illuminated by romantic Moroccan lanterns.
