We arrange transport to the desert from anywhere in Morocco by private 4×4 or by Helicopter from Marrakech to Zagora.

Our 4×4 Transport is comfortable and air-conditioned and can take up to 6 people. We only use the most experienced drivers and ensure you have an English-speaking driver or guide.

The camp can be reached by one full day’s drive of approximately 8.5 hours from Marrakech. Alternatively, you can break up your journey by staying at one of our preferred hotels in Ait Ben Haddou, Agdz or Zagora. You can also fly from Casablanca to Zagora and we will arrange a 4×4 transfer to the camp which takes 3 hours.
