AIT BENHADDOU PRIVATE FULL DAY TRIP PROGRAM
This day trip from Marrakech to Ouarzazate & Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou takes you right across the chain of the High Atlas mountains and over the famous Tizi n’Tichka pass, the highest in the whole of Africa. All along the route, you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains, sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves.
At times you come down into the valleys to drive alongside the river bordered by oleander and fruit trees. The gardens are full of olives, walnuts, pomegranates, apples, pears and quinces. Berber women and children tend goats and sheep and climb even the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood.
After the Tichka pass, you leave the main road and take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Lords of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, which stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. From there you continue for lunch at Ait Ben Haddou along the newly asphalted road.
The afternoon is spent exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, which has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters. It was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond.
