The first Observatory at the Edge of the Moroccan Sahara

Astro-Vacation in Morocco
Kasbah Hotel & Observatory SaharaSky - a 100€ flight to Marrakech, an unforgettable day-trip over the High Atlas (2260m) and a drive through the Moon-like landscapes of the Anti-Atlas leads you to the Draa valley. This 200km wide date oasis with its 1000 medieval Kasbahs ends in Zagora adjacent to SaharaSky at the foot of the first sand dunes of the Moroccan Sahara. The German owner and astronomer Fritz Gerd Koring, with over 20 years experience in Morocco, cares for his guests during stargazing sessions and with exciting daytime programs in and around SaharaSky.
