The word “Ouzoud” means "the act of grinding grain" and it seems, the meaning is also echoed through a high prevalence of mills in the region.

Know More about this tour

On this one day trip you will discover some of the most beautiful sites of the Middle Atlas. You will be picked up from your hotel at 8am. The 3-hour journey to the Ouzoud falls will involve driving through boisterous traditional Moroccan towns, sleepy rural villages, and across hills and forests with lush landscapes.

The Ouzoud falls are about 110 meters in height which makes them the highest waterfalls in North Africa.The top of the waterfall offers an astonishing view and you will note there are walking paths all over the site. You could enjoy a walk along the river or the waterfall’s edge and be rewarded by beautiful, mesmerising sights and native wildlife.  “Magot” monkeys roam the trees and water.  They are not completely wild creatures and are used to humans being around – but it is always better to watch them from a distance.

In the late afternoon we will set off on our return journey to Marrakech and you will be dropped at your hotel. Before we do this, there is time for you to also try a traditional Moroccan dish and sip a glass of mint tea at a local restaurant.
