cascadas-de-ouzoud_7610295    After morning pickup from your hotel or riad in Marrakech, travel by 4×4 vehicle or minibus 93 miles (150 km) northeast to the village of Tanaghmeilt in the Atlas Mountains, the home of Ouzoud Falls. As you drive past lush green valleys, old water mills and acres of fruit trees, your knowledgeable guide will share facts and anecdotes about this scenic region. At 360 feet (110 meters) high, Ouzoud Falls are the highest falls in North Africa. Ouzoud means ‘olive’ in the Berber language of Morocco, so it’s no surprise the plateau above the falls is draped with thousands of olive trees. The ground below is brick-red because of iron oxides in the soil. Follow a short path to see the magnificent tableau of six different waterfalls cascading down the cliffside. It is a refreshing and rejuvenating sight here in a land often stricken by drought. Keep your camera handy for one photo opportunity after another. In the morning, if you’re lucky, you may glimpse a macaque monkey nearby. In the afternoon sun, you may see a gorgeous rainbow over the falls!If you’d like to get a different perspective on Ouzoud Falls, you can walk down stone steps to the bottom of the falls. Better yet, hire a guide who can show you some caves along the way. Savor a traditional tagine (own expense) at a restaurant in the shade of the olive trees before heading back to Marrakech. Your relaxing day trip to Ouzoud Falls concludes with drop-off at your hotel or riad at about 5pm.
