Accompanied by a playful caption hinting at her experience (‘This New Year’s Day got a (hump)grade 👀’), Sharapova shared a series of stunning photos that captured the essence of her desert escapade. The images portrayed the athlete amidst the golden sands and rugged terrains, embracing the tranquility and raw beauty of the Moroccan desert.

Agafay Desert, often dubbed as the “desert of Marrakech,” offers a unique experience distinct from the traditional Sahara Desert. Its serene ambiance, coupled with panoramic vistas, has made it a preferred destination for travelers seeking solitude and nature’s marvels. For Sharapova, it seemed to be the ideal backdrop to kickstart the New Year.

The captivating visuals hint that Sharapova might have chosen the Agafay Luxury Camp for her accommodation. This distinguished glamping site offers elegant, expansive pavilions that seamlessly blend comfort and seclusion with the untamed beauty of the wilderness. Boasting modern conveniences such as electricity, telephone access, air conditioning, and readily available hot water, the camp ensures a luxurious yet authentic desert experience.

This is not Sharapova’s first time vacationing in Morocco. The five-time Grand Slam champion visited this North African country in 2019 as well, when she was photographed by artist Hassan Hajjaj.
