Day trip to Ouzoud waterfalls

The famous Ouzoud Falls are located on the edge of the Atlas Mountains. They are among the most popular places to photograph in Morocco. This is not surprising, because experiencing Oued River thundering down over a hundred meters into the depths is truly breath-taking. That is not all, because Ouzoud is also famous for the Barbary apes who live in this valley, rounding off the spectacular scenery in a rather surreal manner.
The day trip will start with a pickup, hop inside your air-conditioned vehicle, and enjoy the views as you travel to Ouzoud waterfalls, on the way listen to fascinating facts about the Berber culture and Ouzoud Falls and how they rank as the highest natural waterfalls in North Africa. After 2h30min journey meet your local knowledgeable guide for a walking tour of about one hour and follow the path to the lip of the falls. Then, behold the tiered cascades that tumble from different heights down into a natural amphitheater of red-colored rock cliffs. Absorb the roar of the cascades as you take photos, and with luck, see some of the Barbary apes that congregate by the water or one of the shimmering rainbows that form in the mists wreathed around the plunging waters. I addition, you will visit several view points and walk down steps to the base and explore the bottom part of the waterfalls on an included boat trip and see the falls from a unique angle. Having taken in the full beauty of the area, enjoy an exclusive lunch at one of the restaurants along the path to the falls with an amazing view. Lastly, enjoy your return journey to Marrakech, where your trip ends with drop-off at the meeting point.
