Marrakech day trip to Ait Benhaddou Kasbah

In this not-to-miss day trip we take you from Marrakech through the Atlas Mountains, passing by the road of Tizi n'Tichka, the highest road pass in Africa (at 2260 m above the sea level), towards the UNESCO World Heritage monument of Kasbah Ait ben Haddou.

Along the way from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou, you will be fascinated by the wonders and the panoramic views of the isolated Berber villages in the mountains.

After the Tizi n'Tichka pass, you leave the main road and take a side track into the Telouat Kasbah, the ancient palace of Pacha El Glaoui. After 40 km of track with breathtaking views over the Valley of Ounila you get to the Kasbah Ait Benhadou.

The beauty of this area is well having been used in movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth and Gladiator.

Have a delicious lunch at the restaurant in Ouarzazate and then take a walk with our English speaking guide/Driver to discover the beauty and the authenticity of Taourirt Kasbah and have a visit to the cinema studios of Ouarzazate "Holywood of Africa".

In the ksar Ait Ben Haddou where few families are still living in you will be invited for a lovely cup of tea with the inhabitant. In the afternoon we drive you back to your hotel in Marrakesh via the Tizi n'Tichka Pass.
