Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Late autumn (September to November) and early spring (February to April) are the best time to visit, with daytime temperatures in the 20's and low 30's Celsius. You can also go in midwinter (December to January) if you don't mind the chilly nights (typically 5-10 Celsius). Midsummer (June to August) is best avoided, as blistering temperatures climb to the high 30's.

Insider's View

Ask one of the attentive staff members for the best spot to watch the sun set.

This is the perfect spot to get away from it all- be prepared to completely switch off with no wifi or phone signal.

This is the perfect addition to any trip to Morocco.

After dinner, simply sit back and enjoy some star-gazing.

A staff member will show you where to go to watch the sunset. With the sunset on one side, and the goats returning from their graze on the other - it is a truly entertaining time of day!

Stargazing here is spectacular. Before bed, spend some time on your wooden deck watching the milky way twinkle overhead.

For a seriously special experience, take a bottle of bubbles and sit at the hill top to watch the sunset - truly magical!

Switch off from the world, with no technology, no internet, no phone signal - just beautiful, calm surroundings and a starry sky to gaze into at night.

Located in the desert just outside Marrakech, Inara Camp offers a secluded retreat for a desert camp experience, where you can try a camel or buggy ride and sleep in a berber tent under the starry sky.

Tucked away between the bustling streets of Marrakech and the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains, the Agafay Desert offers a taste of the Moroccan desert experience without the long days of driving that the Sahara requires. Just one hour from Marrakech, here you'll have the chance to escape the busy city and learn about the Berbers' nomadic way of life.

The accommodation at Inara Camp is in private caidal tents, typically Moroccan in style, offering the classic desert experience but with added modern amenities. The tents are welcoming and comfortable, with king-sized or twin beds, a sitting area and an en-suite bathroom featuring a small shower, with both hot and cold running water, and a flushing toilet.

At night the ambience of the desert comes alive as you relax to the sounds of traditional Berber musicians and enjoy the endless starry sky and peace of your desert surrounds.

One of the highlights of Agafay must be the staff, comprising of 2 different families who have travelled from their native desert south they create a welcoming family atmosphere with incredible levels of hospitality making it very hard to leave!

The rolling rocky landscapes may not have the golden sands of the Sahara but the remote location and mountain background still offers a very special ambience making this a great addition to a stay in vibrant Marrakech. This is also the perfect place to bring out your adventurous side with a wide range of thrilling activities available including quad bikes, camel treks and dune buggies.

Children are welcome at Inara Camp, however there are no specific childcare facilities. Some tents can accommodate an extra bed.

This truly was a wonderful experience, nothing could have prepared me just for how beautiful and idealic the setting is and how amazing the stars look from out in the Agafay Desert. If you are visiting Morocco you really need to enjoy atleast one night here, with an easy journey of only 40 minutes from Marrakech you simply must visit. With lots of lovely surprises and activities to enjoy you will fall in love with this part of Morocco as I have.

 Just an hour outside of the bustling city of Marrakech awaits a luxury getaway in the stone desert. While there are no sand dunes, there is landscape that changes colours with the light, and in the evening a sky that is filled to bursting with stars. The tents themselves are billowing white canvas that has a king size bed, separate living area, and of course, a bathroom with running water. Each tent also has a raised wooden platform that is perfect for having an aperitif, or just enjoying the silence. The dining experience here is one of the most magical and intimate, and not just because the food is outstanding; with a private pavilion, candlelight, and impeccable service, dinner is as special as the desert. There is also a multitude of activities available to satisfy the most adventurous.

I was unsure of what to expect from a "rocky" desert, however, as I watched the sunset over the rolling outcrop with the picturesque silhouette of a camel in my foreground I could not help but be overwhelmed by this very special place. The highlight for me came at night as the camp was delicately illuminated by lanterns and candles as we relaxed to the sound of a traditional live gnaoua band. The spacious tents held plenty of room and the air conditioning unit, although a little noisy, was a welcome relief from the heat of our summer stay.
