Day Trips To Ait Ben Haddou - Discover A New Side To Morocco
Explore A Different Side Of Morocco In Just One Day!
This day-long guided adventure from Marrakech, will take you across the high Atlas Mountains, to the Moroccan city of Ait Ben Haddou. En route to Ait Ben Haddou, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, you will travel across the Tizi n’Tichka mountain, which is 7,410 feet above sea level and the highest point in all of Africa! As well as see amazing Berber villages and ever-changing landscapes across these glorious mountains. This day trip also includes a guided tour of the sites.
You will begin your trip with an early morning pickup at around 7:30am from your accommodation in Marrakech, by your private driver and air-conditioned 4×4. Once you leave Marrakech, you will drive across the high Atlas Mountains and over the famous Tizi N’Tichka passage, which is 2,260 meters high and the highest point in all of Africa! Here you will witness stunning views of traditional Berber villages which are perched all along the mountainside – sometimes they are even hard to distinguish from the actual mountains.
Once you reach the far side of the mountains, the landscape takes a drastic change and becomes semi-arid and desert-like. The architecture of the kasbah buildings is also different here, with turrets on all the buildings, and grilled windows with soft peach coloured walls.
After you have completed your journey through the incredible valleys, you will arrive at the ancient Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Many famous movies and series have been filmed here such as Game of Thrones, Prince of Persia, The Mommy, Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia to name but just a few.
Your trip includes a visit to the site with a local expert guide who will take you to the best spots and give you an in-depth tour of the area. You will also stop to have lunch at a nearby restaurant.
Once you finish your tour you will begin your journey back to Marrakech, arriving back to your accommodation around 7pm.
