What you can expect
Be prepared for an adventurous day of battling the Assaka dunes, meeting live scorpions and exploring the walled ramparts of Tiznit as you venture out to the pre-Saharan sand banks. This full-day guided tour ensures a thrilling day off the beaten tourist path.
Board your 4x4 Jeep and head off to the pre-Saharan dunes. Along the way, stop in suburban Ait Melloul for a coffee, and continue through banana plantations – take a stroll through the dense plants and appreciate the tranquillity of being in the middle of nowhere. Ride along the bumpy banks until you reach Resmoka, where you meet an enthralling scorpion charmer ready to show you the famous yellow scorpion dance. Roam around the smaller dunes and take in expansive views of nothing but sand.
Travel to Youssef Bin Tachfine dam for a photo break and admire panoramic views and calm waters before you head to the Assaka. After a traditional lunch, make your way to the ancient silver capital of Tiznit. Spend free time exploring the ramparts surrounding the medina and its exotic souks, famed for selling Berber silver jewellery – a great souvenir idea.
Hop back on your 4x4 and get ready for a rocky ride through the verdant acres of Souss Massa National Park. Pass Berber villages and habitats of ibises, flamingos and marbled ducks. Keep your eye out for the bald ibis, which can only be found in this area. Heading back to Agadir, make sure you visit the fisherman’s caves at the isolated Sidi R’Bat beach.
