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.
