Our 2 days tour departs at 7:30 from your Riad or Hotel in Marrakech direction Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate by crossing the high Atlas Mountains. After the Tizi n’Tichka pass, you leave the main road and take a side road to the village of Telouet to visit the Kasbah which was a former residence of the Glaoui Family Residence.
The valley we are driving through was an important road for the caravans of traders. We continue along the stunningly beautiful road to Ait Ben Haddou where we have lunch. This is the most famous fortified Kasbah in Southern Morocco and is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. After lunch, we visit the Kasbah. This has been used as the backdrop for many Hollywood films.
Then we continue our trip through the Draa Valley, where we visit beautiful Oases, and further on to the Desert town of Zagora with many opportunities for new exploration and exciting visits.
