The desert couldn’t be told, it should be lived.
Marrakech is a fascinating city, only in a few hours flight from the biggest European capitals, it offers you a total change of scenery and an exceptional sweet life. Its medina (ancient city) full of life, colors and a friendly population that contrasts with GUELIZ and its modernity. But the most beautiful thing about Marrakech still remains its surroundings. Indeed in a radius of forty kilometers nature offers us a dazzling show,and generous life full of emotions. The Atlas Mountains offer an immediate contrast with the desert of AGAFAY. In a few hours, Morocco shows you its most beautiful overviews and delight you with happiness.
The desert of Agafay is a mineral desert that stretches for more than 20 km, amazing micro climate at the foot of Atlas montains with a climatic conditions close to the Sahara. Here no sand dunes but a stony relief very soft with breathtaking landscapes, different lights all day and snowy peaks in background scenery. You are only 40 km ( less than one hour) from Marrakech.
We’ve set up our camp INARA CAMP (formerly known as AGAFAY CAMP) in the magical setting of the stony desert of AGAFAY. In the middle of a vast field of 10 hectares, the camp consists of two parts. The high part including the restaurant, which welcomes our passenger guests for an exceptional lunch. Down below the bivouac part welcomes you to live the unique experience of a night in the desert. Consisting of 10 luxury tents of 30m² giving on a splendid overview of the desert, each with inside king size bed, living room and separate bathroom with shower (hot water) and toilet, the camp keeps intimacy, and respects the tranquility during the realization of each one’s desert dream.
The camp decoration is made by Vincent JAQUET. True invitation to travel, the theme of exploration is very present and the materials used were chosen among the local Moroccan crafts and a diversion of objects from Moroccans daily life. Vincent collected many pieces of wood and iron from the countryside and used them in decoration. The rock and stones are very present too, and the shades of brown are all represented.
Our chef, Mustafa, is delighted to cook using the best products in the region to give a burst of flavor to your plate. We like to work with a permaculture farm near the village (which you can visit) that harvests exceptional vegetables. On the restaurant you will be welcomed by our team from the Sahara desert (southern Morocco) with obsession to anticipate your needs and desires but especially to share this passion of the desert. Dinner is served in the “circle”, the communal living space of the camp. The campfire, the candles, the sky of millions of stars everything is there to take you on an unforgettable experience.
it is very recommended to spend two nights on the camp to fully appreciate this desert environment. Many activities are offered such as camel ride or horseback, quad, mountain biking, trekking, lunch homestay, petanque … The bivouac is 14 km from the lake LALLA TAKERKOUST and we offer water activities such as canoeing & kayak, stand up paddle, jet ski, hoverboard, banana and pool lunch.
