Ouzoud waterfalls day trip excursion from Marrakech
This tour will take us east out of Marrakech and the journey time to the waterfalls is around 2.5 hours. You can use this excursion as a private tour (in a 4 x 4 vehicle) or as part of a shared group in a minibus. You will be picked up from your hotel and we will be under way to the cascades where you will enjoy stunning views of the spectacular waterfalls in Ouzoud.
Getting out of the bustling city and relaxing in the natural spectacle of this place will be the first real sense of pleasure you will get on this excursion. Few tourists manage to get out as far as these areas but this excursion will take you from the city to the waterfalls and back within one full and spectacular day.
Not that many people will get to see the parts of Morocco that we shall on this excursion. You should bring a good pair of walking shoes as we will occasionally be exploring the beauty of the countryside as we head into the cascades at Ouzoud.
We will pass several small towns and villages with a real rural feel about them. At times you will be forgiven for thinking you’ve travelled back in time as some of the rural villagers go about their daily business in some of the most spectacular areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Along the way you will see the monkeys and even greet them as they are not as shy as you might expect. Once we reach the waterfalls you will have a chance to be shown some of the best features of this area by our very own guide.
There are plenty of cafes and restaurants among the waterfalls where you can relax by the rock pools at the bottom of some of the cascades and rushing rivers. Many may choose to bring along a packed lunch and dine at the areas near to the falls.
You should bring some sun block, a camera and a change of clothing, if you plan on taking a dip in some of the pools at the bottom of the falls. But one thing is for sure: you’ll not forget this excursion among the huge natural cascades, Barbary macaques and rural villages that appear to be stuck in the midst of time. We drive back to Marrakech the same scenic way we came and return at some time in the early evening.
