This Private Tour is for anyone wishing to escape from the heat and bustle of Marrakech, the Cascades d’Ouzoud is a tranquil and rejuvenating oasis surrounded by thousands of olive trees offering cooling respite from the city. Swim downstream from Morocco’s highest waterfalls in natural pools and watch the macaque monkeys in their natural habitat among the trees while enjoying a tagine lunch from a terrace overlooking the rock basin and cascading water.
We meet with you at your accommodation in Marrakech to visit two natural wonders of Southern Morocco and to begin the approx 2.5hr beautiful and atmospheric journey through green valleys into the Middle Atlas Mountains. On route, we pass acres of fruit and olive trees in a landscape dotted with small red-earthed Berber villages that offer sightings of lone locals in barren landscapes that lead to who knows where.
Once we arrive at Ouzoud with overhanging cafes, pools to plunge into and amphitheatre of waterfalls you take the steps down past the small rustic Berber hotels and simple restaurants and stalls selling tagines that bubble gently on open-air charcoal stoves.
The view of the water from six different cascades crashing downwards over two promontories is mesmerising. You explore the cascades from various viewing points on foot with a local Berber Guide and the small downstream pools offer great opportunities should you wish to spend some time swimming or decide to cross the river in one of the small rafts.
Explore this area of natural outstanding beauty at your leisure taking advantage of the cooling vapours from the falls mists and visit the rustic stalls and craft shops that have sprung up along the river. Linger over lunch served from a cafe overlooking the falls where sometimes you can come face to face with the local barbary monkeys.
On our return journey, you stop to visit Imi n’Ifri where a naturally formed rock bridge linking to an elaborate underground cave system offers more spectacular photo opportunities with views of dramatic vistas of the gorge below.
