Private Day Trip from Marrakech to Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate 4x4 (One day)

Marrakech, the great Imperial City of Morocco is the ideal starting point for some of the most interesting excursions in Morocco

Departure from  Marrakech  Duration  1 Day

Private Day Tour to Ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou from Marrakech 4x4

Private excursion to the Atlas Mountains, Ait Benhaddou UNESCO heritage site and Ouarzazate from Marrakech

We will depart early in the morning at 07.30 from Marrakech for Ouarzazate: the Hollywood capital. We travel on the High Atlas Mountain road which takes us over the highest drivable pass in North Africa: Tizi-n-Tichka, at 2260 metres altitude. Before reaching Ouarzazate we will take a detour from the main route down a rough track, you will see how diverse the landscape is as we change the panorama from mountains to open plains and desertified vistas. This route will bring you to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ksar Ait Benhaddou. This fortified village is perhaps best known for its use as a film set for many well-known blockbusters over the last 55 years: Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia and the Prince of Persia, the Mummy and the Kingdom of Heaven being some of the most notable. The narrow streets wind up to the top of this fortification where 8 or 9 Berber families still live. From the top you can see for miles around on all sides and the views down to the turreted adobe Kasbahs below are quite spectacular. Our next visit is to the Taourirt and Tifoultoute kasbahs: residences of the Old Glaoui Governor of Marrakech. After lunch we will take the return drive back to Marrakech reaching the Medina around 18.30.
