Zagora

4.5
Inextricably linked with the Sahara Desert, Zagora represents a historical stronghold of the Almoravid empire, whose legacy still decorates the surrounding sandy hills. A vacation in Zagora reveals a vast desert expanse filled with terracotta buildings, dusty market streets, museums, bath houses, mosques, and palm groves. Unlike most of the northern Moroccan towns and cities, a tour of Zagora brings travelers closer to the independent and nomadic Berber culture, which possesses many fascinating and seldom encountered customs. Pleasant weather year-round provides excellent conditions for adventurous camel treks, cycling tours, and other off-road explorations under the huge skies. Zagora is in Souss-Massa-Draa Region.

Where to stay in Zagora

The peaceful and calm center of Zagora has plenty of budget to midrange hotels and guesthouses, mostly located within a five-minute walk from amenities. However, the town is widely popular for its Saharan ambience, so consider immersing yourself in the nomadic Berber culture by camping on Zagora's outskirts. Most of the campgrounds surrounded by the desert also have a lovely garden and very friendly staff. In the nearby Amezrou palm oasis you can find a Kasbah-style hotel that includes a relaxing pool area and serves alcohol.
