Private excursion from Marrakech up the majestic Ouzud Waterfalls. Amazing scenery and playfull monkeys. Great value in your own air conditioned vehicle

Waterfalls and Monkeys

For the more adventurous a three hour drive will take you to the mid Atlas and the majestic Ouzoud waterfalls, the highest in North Africa, with three spectacular tiers. This is also the home of the famous Barbary apes, the naturally tail-less monkeys that you find performing in the main square in Marrakech. It is delightful to see them roaming free in their native habitat. There are several lunchtime restaurants (not included) all of which have spectacular views.

The normal departure time is 8.00 am and you can expect to be back in Marrakech at 18.30.

Your driver will not walk with you down to the waterfall however you will be approached on arrival by local guides and it is a very good idea to hire one for about 200 dirhams. Make sure the fee is agreed and also that you can communicate reasonably well with your guide and feel comfortable in his company.

Your dedicated vehicle will collect you from any hotel or accommodation in Marrakech. If you are staying in one of our wonderful Riads in the old town you will be met at the nearest medina gateway.

You do not have to be staying in one of our riads to book an excursion through us. Please pay attention to input the correct email address and phone number in the booking form. After your reservation is secured the local operator (patente 45191146) will use those details to contact you directly to arrange pick up.

Do not be concerned about late booking, if availability is showing on our system there is a vehicle available for you. Excursions are commonly booked the day before travel.
