11 – Excursion from Marrakech to Ouarzazate


1 Day



Min Age



Ouarzazate is one of the most magnificent cities in Morocco, of which it is the capital, in the Draâ Tafilalet region. The city is nicknamed “the Gateway to the Desert”.

The climate is pre-Saharan, but with mountainous nuances given the altitude. Thus, the climate is not as dry and as hot as the typical Saharan climate.

On this day trip from Marrakech, you will discover the small village, picturesque landscapes and fortification of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou as well as other beautiful places.

Leaving Marrakech behind us, we will head south towards the High Atlas and reach the Tizi N’Tichka pass, 2260 meters high, it is the highest road crossing in Morocco, it connects Marrakech to the Saharan regions of which Ouarzazate is the crossroads.

We will stop for a visit to the famous fortified city of Ait Ben Haddou. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kasbah has been the backdrop for numerous films: the Diamonds of the Nile, Lawrence of Arabia, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Jewel of the Nile, Jesus of Nazareth, the Mammy, Gladiature, 7 dayas in Tabet, Alexander the Great, Babel…

Arriving in Ouarzazate, we will visit the Kasbah of Taourirt built in the 17th century, described by Henri Terrasse as the jewel of this region in “Kasbas Berbères de l’Atlas et des Oasis, Horizons de France, Paris, 1938, p.93” .

In the shade of its palm trees, Ouarzazate has settled, leaving behind a rocky immensity swept by all the winds of the Sahara. Of course, the temperature can easily reach 45°C in summer, but right next door, you could admire the snowy peaks of the High Atlas…

The oases and mountains around Ouarzazate contain real wonders. The Kasbahs, splendid architectural remains with their adobe walls and large towers, will transport you to a world where time seems to have stood still…
