This trip is completely unique and involves staying in 3 different Moroccan tents over 5 nights. It offers an intense insight into the Berber life of Morocco and also will see you enjoying the ultimate luxury hotel experience in the Atlas Mountains.

Tented accommodation plays a strong role in traditional Arabic and Berber culture, born out of a nomadic history and during this itinerary, you’ll experience a small slice of Moroccan history.

Your Itinerary

Itinerary - Summary

This trip concentrates on proximity to Marrakech and is ideal for those who prefer more rural locations.

It starts with two nights at Villa Dinari which is around 30mins from the airport.

After that, we will transfer you to the Agafay Desert, where you can enjoy an overnight stay in a luxury glamping tent.

Finally, enjoy some serious luxury at the Kasbah Tamadot located at the foothills of the mountains.


Day 1 - Arrive Marrakech

Arrive at Marrakech airport where your driver will meet you and take you straight to Villa Dinari. Around 30 minutes from the centre it is set in beautiful gardens around a fabulous pool and, best of all, you sleep in smart “Arabian Nights” tents (although in many ways they are incredibly like hotel rooms with air-conditioning and en suite bathrooms.)

Relax by the pool after your journey or take a trip into the centre of Marrakech to visit the souks.

Tent Note: These are based on Caidal Tents which were traditionally set up in the gardens of rich Moroccans’ villas for accommodating and entertaining visiting dignitaries. They are traditionally white fabric with dark leather applied to both decorate and strengthen.

Day 2 - Pampering

Treat yourself to an invigorating massage or a chilled out Hammam session to unwind, relax and feel amazing. Let the pros work their magic, melting away all that stress and leaving you feeling like a brand-new person.

Afterward, grab a bite at a dope café and dig into some tasty, healthy Moroccan fare that’ll make your taste buds sing.

Get your chef game on with a  cookery lesson that’ll have you whipping up delicious dishes like a local.

Learn the tricks of the trade from a chef and create mouthwatering meals that’ll impress your friends back home!

Once you’ve conquered the kitchen, take a short drive to the old town and get lost in its charming streets.

Explore the historical buildings, soak up the vibes, and uncover some charming hidden spots along the way.

Day 3 - Into the Rocky Desert

After lunch, it’s time to change the scenery to a more dramatic one.

Just an hour away, you will find yourself in the boundless Agafay Desert.

You’ll have the chance to go for a camel ride and take a walk with the blue men (nomad people who wear blue clothing) in the heart of AGAFAY Marrakech Desert. For those who prefer adventure, we can suggest Quad and Buggy rides. Alternatively, you can simply relax by the pool (yes, there is a pool!)

The accommodation for the night is another glamping tent where you’ll find everything you need for your comfort: a king-size bed, a lounge area, and a separate bathroom with a hot shower and toilet.

Luxury Kasbah Tamadot

Day 4 - Ultimate Luxury

Following your night in the Agafay desert, you’ll rendezvous with your driver and make the short trip to Kasbah Tamadot, Richard Branson’s famous Atlas Mountain luxury retreat.

Here you will stay in your third tent, a cavernous luxury suite with a private terrace and plunge pool looking out over the peaks you may have just conquered.

We suggest you arrive for lunch and then book a spa treatment or two for the afternoon before enjoying a sumptuous dinner on the terrace restaurant.

After all, you are going to have to go some to replace all the calories. You will sleep like a log.

Day 5 - Asounfou, the Berber word for relaxation

You’ve come on holiday to relax, haven’t you? Lounging by the pool and soaking up the sun is a good start, but for that extra special touch, the Asounfou Spa offers a range of skincare and body treatments for both men and women.

“Asounfou,” the Berber word for relaxation, perfectly describes the beauty treatment rooms at Kasbah Tamadot…

To continue your authentic Moroccan experience, try another Hammam, where your skin will be deeply cleansed, purified, and softened through the traditional Moroccan cleansing ritual.

We’ve handpicked our favourite spa treatments to enhance your mood…

Day 6 - Home James!

Your driver will collect you for the short trip back to the airport and your flight home.

We guarantee that the memories and experiences will leave you both invigorated and relaxed… and also you will feel that you have been away a lot longer than 5 nights.

The start and finish for most Morocco Holidays. Highlights are the souks in the old Medina, the main square in the evening, the Majorelle gardens and the historical sites. You should definitely stay in a Marrakech Riad for at least a few nights but also some beautiful villas and hotels on the edge of town in rural Marrakech. Click for suggested riads More
Essaouira is our favourite at all times of year. Probably the prettiest coastal town in Morocco and loads to see and do. Great camel trekking, horse-riding, surfing kite/windsurfing, cooking lessons, lovely medina (more relaxing shopping than Marrakech). Also great places to stay in town and in the village click below for suggestions More
High Atlas Mountains
Incredibly close to Marrakech but a world apart, the Atlas mountains are an essential visit. Go for a day trip (trekking or driving tour), or stay in one of the beautiful kasbahs perched on a hilltop to relax and soak up the views More
Sahara Desert
The massive dunes of the Sahara should be on anyone's "bucket list" and it is easy to do a trip into the desert from Marrakech, Fes or the coast with a bit of planning More
Ait Ben Haddou
One of the most famous sights in Morocco, Ait Ben Haddou is a rock fortress on the south side of the Atlas. Always a good stopping point on our desert tours and a must for the photo album More
The Gorges
The Todra and Dades Gorges maybe a little over-hyped but certainly worth a stop on the way to Mezourga - part of our Desert & Gorges Tour More
A pretty walled town within easy reach of Agadir (so a lot of day trippers from the package hotels) but also a great place for a night's stop between the desert and the coast More
Having been re-built after and earthquake 50 years ago it doesn't have as much charm as other Moroccan cities but the beach and climate are lovely More
Oualidia Lagoon
A small seaside town built up around a pretty estuary and lagoon. Home to La Sultana, the best coastal hotel in Morocco and can easily be combined with a visit to Marrakech and Essaouira More
Less well known as a tourist destination but with recently introduced direct flights from the UK it is an interesting city where you can see the modern Morocco alongside the rivermouth Kasbah and the medina More
The biggest city in Morocco and an industrial sprawl. We generally advise not stopping there and even if flying to Casablanca head North to Fes/Rabat or south to Marrakech/Essaouira. If you are passing through it is worth visiting the spectacular seafront mosque.
The town of Chefchaouen is beautifully situated on a mountainside, often referred to as the blue pearl due to its shimmering blue buildings. It's worth learning the history behind the choice of this color, which contributed to the town's fame, making it one of the most photographed places in Morocco. In Chefchaouen, explore the picturesque medina with winding alleys and the Kasbah with its lush gardens, serving as a haven of freshness in the city center. Chefchaouen is a paradise for walkers, not only because of its most beautiful streets and alleys, which create an unreal impression but also due to the hiking trails around the city. Besides the Old Town, it's worth visiting the main square, Uta el Hamman, with numerous cafes, and seeing the 15th-century El Adamaa Masjid mosque in white-orange colors with its characteristic octagonal minaret. Chefchaouen is an excellent choice for a one-day trip or a relaxing overnight stay. More
Fes makes for a fabulous long weekend or as part of our "Grand Tour". The highlight is the medina which most people prefer to Marrakech, partly as it is on a hill you are much more aware of the geography. Also, do a day trip to the Roman ruins at Volubilis and ask about a night or two in the village of Bhalil More
The second good dune area of Morocco is Erg Chebbi by Merzouga - easier to get to (no 4x4 needed) and whilst the dunes are stunning we prefer Erg Cheggaga for a proper desert experience. More
