Horseback riding in Morocco. The Great Moroccan South separates the Saghro massif from the dune formations that appear in the west of the Oued Draa. At the gates of the great desert, the Moroccan Sahara is crossed by many nomads. This horseback trail ride is ideal to approach the desert wild life. A very varied itinerary, between dunes, arid plateaus, oases, palm groves, and superb kasbahs, which will allow you to immerse yourself during a few days in the desert life.
