How to reach SaharaSky


Best to fly to Marrakech which is an excellent point of departure and return for your trip to South Morocco. All charter airlines have frequent direct flights to Marrakech and offer low airfares. Flights normally arrive in the morning and you can continue travelling by road to Zagora.

Second choice is Agadir for those who plan to extend their vacations at the famous beaches of this relaxed seaside resort. Excellent roads lead to the Zagora region via Taroudant - Tazenakht - Agdez and Zagora.

Best proposal:   The CTM which leaves Marrakech CTM station at 11am and
