Tata Akka Expedition

Tata Akka Expedition
Morocco Morocco

Let your horse guide you through desert sands, endless plains, immense oases of palm trees, salty rivers and mountain chains in orange, red, and brown. Stop to enjoy the scene of the red sand of the Sahara meeting black mountain passes. This ride explores a remote area still unused to tourism and we will see many local people in typical settings.

The Tata Akka Expedition departs from Agadir and transfers to our first title city, Tata, situated on the Sahara plain close to the Algerian border. As our journey begins we ride through kasbah villages and canter across white sand. Forward going horses take us deep into the desert to Akka, our second titular city. Akka is an oasis marked by clusters of red houses and villager going about their daily life. This was a stop on an ancient caravan route and subsequently became an area of Jewish settlement in Morocco.

From Akka we travel on to camp on river banks and under palm groves. We venture across mountains, refresh at waterfalls and carefully navigate narrow paths. Chances for quicker paced rides appear as we reach endless sand plains. As we reach the palmary of Foum Zguid, whose remoteness is an attraction in itself, we are satisfied with the Tata Akka Expedition and its wonderful sites and experiences.

Wonderful landscapes!
"Thanks for the great adventure and trip across this beautiful landscape. I'll always remember the long gallops and what it felt like to be a little jockey on the horse (Raouia) who always wants to be the first. What a great first equestrian vacation, and hopefully I'll be able to make it back for another ride one day."
