Summmary of your Trip to Ouarzazate
Our trip to Ouarzazate provides you with a great opportunity to explore the hidden authentic Morocco. This Journey to the Hollywood city of Africa as well as the old fortress of Ait Benhadou must be your choice for a better experience in order to see Morocco with local eyes…
Trip To Ouarzazate & Ait Benhadou Itinerary:
Both Ouarzazate and Ait Benhadou fortress are located on the southern slopes of High Atlas Mountains. The city of Ouarzazate is considered to be the gateway to Sahara Desert and the capital of Kasbahs. Hence, for a long time, Ouarzazate was a small crossing point for African traders on their way to northern Morocco and Europe.
During the French period, it has expanded considerably as a garrison town, administrative centre and customs post. Furthermore, 40km far from Ouarzazate, is the mud village of Ait Benhadou. It is an eminent example of a ksar ‘village’ in southern Morocco illustrating the main types of earthen constructions that maybe observed dating from the 17th century. This UNESCO site hosted an important list of Hollywood movies such as Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia and Game of Thrones… Therefore, all this makes it a very iconic landmark in Morocco’s history.
Our Trip to Ouarzazate will take us via the Atlas Mountains, green plains, mud villages and remote areas… After you have taken your breakfast, our driver will meet you at the hotel and start our private trip to Ouarzazate as well as the Kasbah Ait Benhadou. So, we will leave Marrakech and cross High Atlas Mountains with panoramic views along the ride. As we arrive to Ouarzazate, we will take pictures of Kasbah Taourirt and Atlas Studio (external side).
