Travel Tips for Zagora

Zagora, where to stay for the night?

by sachara

Zagora is a nice starting point for exploring the Draa Valley and the desert.
There are many hotels, restaurants, places to book a desert- or cameltrip and shops.
The most are very well signposted.
At the roundabout with the famous ''Timbouctou, 52 days'' sign, we saw this wood of signs, so make your choice!

Desert Overnighter

by suvanki

A small rucksack - enough just to carry overnight supplies

The camels carry these bags on your saddle - sleeping bags etc are carried in panniers. Comfy loose fitting trousers /cut offs, long sleeved shirt for sun protection, hat or scarf, sunglasses.

Sandals are ok for riding the camels, but if walking, there are some sharp thistle/cactus type plants.

(We travelled late afternoon and earlyish morning in early September )

Fleece jacket/waterproof - we did feel a few drops of rain on the way! Overnight toiletries ie toothbrush/paste, soap, deodorant, loo roll, mossie repellent,
sun screen, eye drops, Lip balm
Any medication you take or might need.
ear plugs! Whatever you can carry- plenty of photo ops!
A protective bag - the sand gets everywhere! Sleeping bag - Although We'd been advised to bring a sleeping bag, and I was advised by our camping shop to purchase one suitable for very cold conditions, I didn't use it, as it was too warm. However, It can get very cold once the sun has gone, and perhaps we were lucky - better to be over prepared for all eventualities! Sunglasses,Torch (+ batteries), scarf (arabic style) in case a wind blows up- to wrap around your face,
Bottled water/ juice etc.
Wet wipes. Tissues/loo roll
One of our party had a sketch pad and pens - so if You're artistically inclined- art materials!

Tinfou Dunes

by sachara

About 23 KM south of Zagora are theTinfou Dunes. These are some isolated sanddunes.
Here we got just a a small taste of the desert. We made a short camelride, just for fun. It was a pity, the cameldrivers didn't allow us to ride on our own.
Such a short touristic camelride gave not a comparable feeling as a cameltrip of more days, we did the year before.

Riding thru the Draa Valley (part II)

by amsterdam_vallon

Second Stop :

The village of Ouaouzagour. Along the wadi, a very dense and almost uninterrupted palm plantation projects its beneficial shade on tiny fields scattered among the trees and separated by a tangle of small cob walls.

A Camel trek into the desert 4

by suvanki

We arrived at our camp as dusk was falling. There were many similar camps dotted around the vicinity, but far enough away as to not be too obtrusive.

On the way, we'd seen a few 4x4's whizz along the desert road hmmm- next time I'll know the way to travel! and near to our tent was parked an old camper van.

We dismounted en masse, and after collecting our bags and sleeping bags, we sprawled over the carpeted area of our accomodation for the night, unpacking our bags to find torches etc, then our packed beer/wine etc!
The camels were being led away for food and then to be settled down for the night.
