After relaxing in luxurious hotels, we needed some adrenaline and action. Quad biking with Dunes Desert was the perfect activity for this!
I’ve never been quad biking in the desert – and I promise you it’s the most amazing thing! Especially if you’re the type that loves speed and adrenaline. We were picked up by the Dunes Desert car and brought to their base. After a quick and clear briefing about our quad trip and how to actually drive it, we started our journey!
In a group of about 5 quad bikes we drove through the desert d’Agafay. This small desert is only 45 minutes from the city of Marrakech. It’s not sand dunes like at the Sahara. Yet layer after layer of rock dunes give you a similar feeling the Sahara gives you. Calmth, beauty and of course lots of action.
After 30 minutes of driving we arrived at a small Berber village. A beautiful family of around 7 people were living here taking care of their animals on their own small farm – chicken, sheep and coes. The kindest people you’ll ever meet. They made us a typical Moroccan lunch: msemmen, honey and mint tea. After exploring the village a bit and feeding our bellies, it was time to hit the road again.
On our way to the village the road was quiet ‘easy’, so you could easily go full of speed. But on our way back we went into the real dunes and you had to go a bit slower. This was the best part! Riding in sand, going up and down, adrenaline, action and everything I expected Quad biking to be.
