Habitas, the rapidly growing global eco-hospitality group, will launch Caravan Agafay this Autumn, marking the group’s first presence in Morocco, and its second on the African continent. A stones throw from downtown Marrakech, Caravan Agafay will embrace nomadic Bedouin culture and traditions around communal living to create an immersive glamping experience for travellers seeking adventure, discovery, and human connection.

Located in the Agafay Desert, known for its stark and expansive setting, and with the Atlas Mountains as a dramatic backdrop,  Caravan Agafay will span five hectares and feature 20 stylish Moroccan canvas wall tents, all drawing on local design traditions. A gourmet restaurant using locally sourced food products, two swimming pools, a horse and camel stable, outdoor cinema, yoga/wellness centre, and Habitas’ signature agora communal gathering spaces, will complete the offering.

True to brand, Caravan Agafay is all about maximising the experience with minimal impact on the surroundings. The design takes inspiration directly from the Atlas Mountain and desert environment, and guests can fill their days and nights with horseback riding, camel trekking, desert survival skills, intimate music experiences, yoga and stargazing. Additional programming includes visits to local Berber communities supported by Habitas RISE, Habitas’ impact arm.
