By helicopter or light aircraft
An alternative way of getting to the camp is to charter a helicopter or light aircraft. The nearest airport that the light aircraft can land is at Zagora. The helicopter can land adjacent to the camp.
The trips in both the helicopter and the light aircraft are amazing, with wonderful views of the Atlas Mountains, the lush valleys and the desert. The helicopter though, can only fly over the mountains in fine weather, which is about 80% of the time.
The helicopter can take up to 5 passengers. The journey from Marrakech to the camp takes one-and-a-half hours.
There are various light aircraft now available, ranging from twin-engined 7-, 10- or 18-seaters to single engine 4-seaters.
The twin-engined light aircraft can fly over the Atlas Mountains in any weather. The single engine, like the helicopter, can only fly in fine weather, about 80% of the time.
The helicopter costs about 7200 euro from Marrakech to the camp for a one-way trip. The cost of a return trip with an overnight stop, and provided the trip is completed within 24 hours, is8500 euro. To park the helicopter at the camp costs approximately 3000 euro per day.
The single engine light aircraft is the cheapest option. A return flight with a one-night layover costs 3300 euro. A one-way flight is about 3000 euro. A one-way flight from Fez is about 4500 euro.
The twin-engine flights costs approximately 5200 euro for a one-way trip and 8000 euro for a return flight with a one-night layover.
