Four to five hours south-east of Marrakech by road, the town of Ouarzazate is known as the gateway to the south of the country. The scenery around Ouarzazate is filled with valleys and gorges, with the Draa Valley extending southwards and providing plenty of greenery with its date palm oases that line the road to Zagora and beyond, where the Sahara proper begins and the roads and towns run out. Film
buffs can indulge a guilty pleasure between the camel treks and Bedouin cultural experiences; Ouarzazate is home to the Atlas Film Studios, where a host of A-list movies have been made, from Lawrence of Arabia to Gladiator. The region's dramatic scenery and traditional Kasbah buildings do indeed lend themselves wonderfully well to film sets, as anyone who plans a Ouarzazate & Southern Desert holiday will appreciate.
