Marrakech to Ouzoud water falls Day Trip
The Ouzoude Waterfalls are at 165 kilometres from Marrakech, Morocco, and are hidden away in the Atlas Mountains. The Ouzoude water falls freely from over 100 metres of altitude, and the waterfalls are surrounded by green, pretty vegetation. Around the area you can observe the old grain mills of the Berbers, some still in working order, and also families of Macaco monkeys playing and eating in the trees. The fall of water on the rocks causes a fog giving birth to a rainbow almost permanent.
For the more adventurous a three hour drive will take you to the mid Atlas and the majestic Ouzoud waterfalls, the highest in North Africa, with three spectacular tiers.
This is also the home of the famous Barbary apes, the naturally tail-less monkeys that you find performing in the main square in Marrakech. It is delightful to see them roaming free in their native habitat.
There are several lunchtime restaurants (not included) all of which have spectacular views.The normal departure time is 8.00 am and you can expect to be back in Marrakech at 18.pm. Your dedicated vehicle will collect you from any hotel or accommodation in Marrakech. If you are staying in one of the wonderful Riads in the old town you will be met at the nearest medina gateway.
