Including Gladiator, Obelix, The Mummy, The Jewel of the Nile, Sahara with Penélope Cruz…etc.
Free time for lunch in the city.
Then we continue to Zagora through the Anti Atlas Mountains, where we suggest some photo stops. After 2 hours of driving we reach our destination “Zagora desert” around 5pm. We leave the car there to ride the camels to the Berber tent camp. The trip takes about an hour and we get to see the sunset.
After dinner we will enjoy a show with drums and Berber music. We spend the night in the camp, sleeping in the nomad tent under the lights of the stars in the heart of the desert.
