Site of the iconic sign ‘Timbuctu 52 jours’, the desert outpost of Zagora has been a caravan halt for at least 500 years. You can shop for jewellery with Berber, Muslim and Jewish motifs in the nearby mellah of Amazraou. If you’re feeling energetic, a climb up the Jebel Zagora will give you a splendid view over the Draa Valley.
From Zagora it is a two-hour journey to the oasis of M'hamid, starting point for expeditions to the rolling dunes of Erg Chigaga. Beyond stretch 4,800 kilometres of desert.
