Ouzoud Falls Day Trip from Marrakech
From US$28.64
Overview

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.

Best day of our trip!

We were greeted by the minibus outside our hotel we agreed at 08:00 and made the 3 hour bus journey to Ouzoud. I was a bit reluctant to book the trip with the thought of 6 hours in a minibus but it genuinely didn't seem...More

It may depend on how close you are to the tour buses meeting point. The tour guide I met whilst there seemed happy to do the rounds of picking up tourists from wherever they were staying. But that was after booking in... More

If it's straightforward to get to Jemaa el-Fnaa then it's best to meet the minibus there. We did this as we were staying a 10-15 min walk away and got to choose our seats on the minibus as it was empty. It then went to one... More

Not really unless strong and agile or you do not mind carrying them for thirty minutes up a narrow path that gets steeper and more slippery the nearer the waterfalls you get. You also have to walk past stalls selling cheap... More
