Continuing along the Draa

From Skoura, we headed back towards Ouarzazate and then South along the N9 again following the Draa river valley. This part of the journey really was my favourite I think, the landscape seemed to change around every corner (and there were a lot of corners!).

The road took us through the major town of Agdz where we stopped for a quick lunch before continuing down to Zagora. In Zagora we stayed at Riad Soleil Du Monde, a lovely riad just outside of Zagora. This Riad also had free bikes for rent and so we took the opportunity to cycle around the city before the sun set.

Beautiful Riad

The cyling took us along the river and through the backstreets of Zagora enjoying an ice-cream at the main square.

As the sun began to set we sat on the riverbank and watched as a farmer moved his noisy camels and the sun disappeared behind Zagora mountain.

After chatting to the owners of the Riad and reading a lot of reviews and blogs, we decided that a trip to the desert would be the most exciting thing to do. The options were either to take a 4x4 from Zagora into the desert, or to drive ourselves to M'Hamid. Always wanting to make our own adventures, we decided to drive ourselves to M'Hamid and from there go quadbiking and perhaps stay overnight in a tent in the desert! A great plan, surely nothing could go wrong...
