Have you ever thought of a destination elopement but haven’t chosen your dream location yet? As a destination wedding and elopement photographer, I was lucky to recently explore some of the most beautiful Marrakech wedding venues, and Agafay Luxury Camp was one of my favourites.
The breathtaking raw landscapes and variety of glamping experiences make Agafay a perfect location not only for an elopement or a micro wedding, but also your pre-wedding dinner and celebrations.
Agafay Desert is located approximately 40-minute drive from the centre of Marrakech and 30 minutes from Menara Airport. The best ways to reach Agafay is a car rental or a transfer organised by official taxi companies or your desert camp.
Getting to and from Agafay Desert is easy. If you consider it as your wedding location you shouldn’t worry about the logistics. Guests can travel here in a private or shared transfer and this can be easily arranged by your chosen venue.
Agafay is home to many beautiful camps that provide accommodation and cater delicious food. They consist of numerous luxury tents, restaurants and even infinity pools overlooking the desert. Choosing one of the camps for your celebrations will add a whole new level to your Marrakech wedding experience.
SCARABEO CAMP– African mats, Berber carpets, souvenirs of distant journeys, Moroccan lanterns- Scarabeo is the most chic camp in Agafay.
