Excursion Ouzoud waterfalls from Marrakech

Excursion Ouzoud waterfalls from Marrakech

This is a beautiful day trip that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and into the relaxing Ouzoud waterfalls. These are the most important, the highest as well as the most beautiful waterfalls in Morocco. The Ouzoud waterfalls are located 160 km (99miles) from Marrakech, situated in the Middle Atlas. During this private tour to Ouzoud waterfalls, we will come across much of Morocco’s rural life, feeling as if we are traveling in time. Once we reach the town of Ouzoud, we will meet our local Berber tour guide who will take us for a hike along the river and to the very best viewpoints to see these stunning waterfalls. Ouzoud is a Berber word, it means “olive trees” referring to the Valley of Olives that shade the path to the waterfalls. We might encounter Atlas monkeys who are typical to the area, we can greet them as they are not at all shy. The pools of fresh water are typically cold, even during the Summer months, but whoever wishes may swim in them. We will then have lunch with these beautiful views before heading back.

We recommend this excursion to anyone staying in Marrakech that wants to enjoy nature and the great outdoors for a day. The Ouzoud waterfalls private tour is perfect for anyone looking to experience magnificent views, greet friendly monkeys and breathe the rural atmosphere of Morocco.

It is essential to bring suitable footwear, sun protection and a change of clothes if you want to go for a swim.

Tradition & Comfort

Logo pagina de inicio

At Best Morocco Tour we believe that the experiences we offer should be real and authentic. In order to achieve that, we prefer to always include in every one of our trips and tours, authentic traditional architecture accommodations. These reflect the culture of the country and its true essence with maximum comfort and convenience. We believe that an experience is only truly appreciated, when you are submerged fully into it.


In Morocco there is a category of accommodation referred to as a “riad”. It is a traditional accommodation and with a lot of charm and personality. Some riads are true architectural treasures and look like palaces from a child’s story book. The word riad in Arabic means “Eden”. A riad is typically a spacious house whose rooms are distributed around an interior patio, enhanced by a fountain surrounded by a geometric garden, where ornamental and aromatic plants, orange trees and on some occasions even palm trees grow.

Most of the riads are old residences and palaces turned into charming hotels located in the old urban core of the cities.

There Are Riads Of All Categories:

Standard: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 2*/3* accommodation.

Superior standard: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 4* accommodation.

Luxury: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 5* accommodation.

Premium: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as high standing accommodation. In Morocco many premium riads are referred to as “Villas.” They are large residential-tourist complexes or resorts, usually far from the center and the hustle and bustle of the cities.

Authentic Experience

Jaimas In The Desert

During our excursions to the Sahara desert we offer the possibility of sleeping in authentic Berber camps. These are typically nestled in the middle of the dunes and under the blanket of the clear night sky filled with stars. “Jaimas” are a kind of tent used by nomadic people in their desert settlements. It is a good option to experience the desert in its purest form, it’s vastness and freedom.

Elegance, maximum comfort and convenience

In Best Morocco Tour

During our tours in the desert of Morocco we use two types of tents. Depending on the circumstances you can opt for the Berber tents; typically made from dromedary wool, cane/ wood or the costumary tents made of canvas with traditional decorative print. All tents are fully equipped to guarantee maximum comfort and convenience. However, the traveler must be conscious that this is a natural environment and the comforts of a tent in the middle of the desert cannot be compared to those of a city hotel.

This experience includes a dromedary ride to enjoy the impressive spectacle of the sunrise in the Moroccan desert as well as sunset in the dunes, full breakfast, dinner and a demonstration of traditional desert music, such as the Berber drums.
