Desert Tours: Organized 4WD Desert Tours

Excursions in 4×4 are the fast and modern way Dar Tafouyte has to take our guests on a discovery adventure in the Sahara Desert and south Morocco. At our own pace on all-terrain vehicles, we explore the magnificent, unforgettable landscapes, meet local nomad families, and find secret special spots in the desert. You will feel right at home in our guesthouse in Morocco… But leaving on a 4×4 on a journey through Morocco in one day or more is going to delight you for sure.
