Scarabeo Luxury desert Camp Marrakech

Desert Camps in South, Marrakech

Want to stay in a desert camp but don't have the time to travel 6 hours to Southern Morocco?  We have the ideal solution!

Our Marrakech desert camp is located only 30km from Marrakech in the Agafay desert, south of the city.  This very comfy and beautiful camp is totally amazing.  You really could be down in the southern desert as this very special and little-known spot really makes one feel that you are lost in the desert!

This is ideal for people who are on a short trip to the country and who do not have time available to drive between 6 and 10 hours to get to Merzouga or Zagora.  Arrive in the afternoon, walk in the desert or ride a camel.  Dinner with campfire and stargazing on clear nights.

For your desert camp holiday within reach of Marrakech, call 01672 500555 to discuss your plans.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

Scarabeo Luxury desert Camp Marrakech Reviews

This camp was fabulous

This camp was fabulous we loved it! Kids find it the highlight of the holidays. We thought it was an excellent alternative to the real Sahara experience which we still want to do another time. Vincent was sweet and glamping was much easier than expected.

High point of our holiday...

The overnight stay in the Agafay Desert with the camel ride was the high point of our holiday (in spite of the overnight temperature!!).

Desert Camp

I would have loved it had Becci not been terrified of all the insects and in the end I had to arrange to go back to the hotel which fortunately had a room left!
