NEW YEAR / CELEBRATE NEW YEAR ON A 3-DAY TOUR IN THE SOUTH OF MOROCCO

New Year South Morocco. Day 1: Ouarzazate – Agdez – Zagora – M’HamidNew Year South MoroccoLeave Ouarzazate in the morning in a 4×4 with driver. On our way to M’Hamid, we travel along the Draa valley with its thousand and one ancient kasbahs and date palm oases that stretch for over 200 km.

We pass the villages of Agdez and Zagora and continue to M’Hamid, the last palm groves in the Draa valley and where the desert begins. A camel ride takes us to our Bivouac El Mezouaria, the gateway to the desert. Once we are settled in the Bivouac, it is time to prepare for New Year’s Eve.

We celebrate the evening under a starry sky, in the open desert, and around a large camp fire.

A delicious traditional dinner is served including Moroccan soup, mechoui (a whole lamb stewed in a special oven – a festive speciality), couscous, a seasonal dessert, tea, Moroccan pastries.

An evening of Nomadic folklore. Overnight stay at Bivouac El Mezouaria.
