one night in Quarzazate

Hi we only have time for 1 night to experience under the stars in the desert. Is it worth the trip from Marrakesh to Quarzazate? We need to head back to Casablanca from Quarzazate.

If you only have a night from Marrakech, you could consider the nearby Agafay 'Desert' experience. Google for info about the non-desert desert sleepovers...

You can experience the stars equally in the Atlas Mountains, of course, given that you pitch your tents well away from villages which might have artificial lights burning during the night.

Please don't head to Ouarzazate if you want to see the stars. Ouarzazate is not the desert but a large town with lots of artificial lights.
