Itinerary: Day trip from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou
The most stunning and well-preserved Kasbah in Morocco is Ait Ben Haddou, which is more of a group of smaller Kasbahs. The fortified hilltop village of Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was on the ancient caravan between Marrakech and the Sahara in the 14th century. Many movies have included the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, and a brand-new community has sprung up around it.
We will leave Marrakech around 09:00 a.m. to begin our day trip to Ait Ben Haddou. Travel through the High Atlas River Valley on the Tizi N’tichka pass road, the tallest mountains in North Africa.
Our Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate day trip will take us to the chain’s summit and the lovely traditional Berber villages that line the route. We’ll arrive at Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified ksar and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, we will explore and enjoy the charm of its stunning Kasbahs.
