Starting from Marrakesh, a day’s visit to the famous Ouzoud waterfalls of 110 metres in height and which constitute one of the most spectacular natural beauty spots in Morocco. It is about a three hour drive to get there through some beautiful Moroccan villages and countryside and is located in the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, 150km North-East of Marrakech.
The surrounding countryside offers red cliffs, green valleys, mills, orchards, oleander and doves and, if you are lucky, you will catch a glimpse of some Barbary apes. Bird-watchers will enjoy a trip to the waterfalls too as will walkers who can enjoy the area at any time of year, except perhaps the hottest summer months of July and August. There are plenty of places to have lunch with a view over the waterfalls from their terraces. And a short walk will bring you to the top of the falls from where you can look down at their full magnificence and at the river.
