The fascinating medinas (historic quarters) of the imperial cities are a must-see on any Moroccan itinerary, but your trip wouldn't be complete without experiencing a completely different facet of the country: its stark, silent deserts. For full immersion, we recommend spending a night there under the stars.
One memorable and accessible place to do it is the Scarabeo Camp in Agafay, just an hour outside of Marrakesh. Here you can stay in a comfortable nomadic tent (including a full bed) in the midst of a barren stone desert with views of the Atlas Mountains in the distance. During the day you can ride a camel or dune buggy, fly a kite, or have a massage; after dinner, served by candlelight in the communal dining tent, you can go stargazing with a professor of astronomy.
A more remote option is the Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp, a nine-hour drive from Marrakesh by 4WD vehicle or a three-hour trip from Zagora. In the sand dunes surrounding the camp you can watch the sun rise or set, go sandboarding (it's like snowboarding but without the frigid temperatures!), or take a camel ride. Evenings feature drumming and singing around a fire before you turn in for the night in your luxury tent.
