South to M'hamid


The Zagora Oasis stretches for some 30km south of the town, when the Drâa dries up for a while, to resurface in a final fertile belt before the desert. You can follow this route all the way down: the road ( 6958/6965/6954) is now paved over the full 98km from Zagora to M'hamid, and with a car it's a fine trip, and with the option of a night's stop near the dunes at Tinfou, or beyond. If you don't have transport, it's a bit of an effort; there are buses to Tamegroute and further south to M'hamid, but times are inconvenient : the CTM leaves Zagora at 4pm, and arrives at M'hamid at 7pm, and there are local buses which leave Zagora later for Tamegroute only. It is possible to charter a grand taxi for an early morning departure, however, which would not be too expensive if you can find a group to share costs, and limit your sights to a day visit to Tamgroute and the sand dunes near Tinfou.
