Ouzoud Falls Day Trip from Marrakech
From US$27.10

This full-day trip to the Ouzoud Falls, North Africa’s highest waterfalls, makes what could be a long journey via public transport feel short, with air-conditioned minivan transport. You won’t waste any time getting to the falls as your guide will show you the best routes, allowing time for an optional swim and boat ride (own expense) up to the cascades. Plus, hotel pickup and drop-off in Marrakech is included.

What to Expect

After pickup from your Marrakech hotel, travel east in a minivan through rural Morocco to the Ouzoud Falls.

On arrival, walk through olive groves owned by generations of Berber farmers and descend to the gorge below the waterfalls. At the base, stroll by the river and marvel at the three-tiered falls, which cascade into a pool. Take photos and, if you wish, enjoy a swim in the cool waters and an optional boat ride (own expense) close to the cascades to feel the spray.

Afterward, step ashore and visit one of the cafes or restaurants overlooking the river for lunch (own expense). Finally, climb the steps back to the top. Pause on route to see the falls from various angles, watch for the rainbows in the mist, and meet and feed the monkeys that gather here.

Your trip then finishes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Worth the long drive!

This tour to the Ouzoud falls was amazing!! It’s so beautiful there and our tour guide was so knowledgeable! It’s quite a long drive out but don’t let that scare you away! I recommend taking a break from Marrakech and taking this tour!

Yes. when we arrived they immediately asked if anyone needed to use the bathroom before descending to the falls. About 20 minutes into the trek down there are Restaurants etc where you can use the toilets for a Dirham or two.
