Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
You could almost forget you're in the middle of the desert once you see these stunning waterfalls! It's a bit of a trek from top to bottom but a great way to fully experience this wonderful oasis. You might even catch a glimpse of a macaque monkey among the trees!

What You Can Expect
At 360 feet (110 meters) high, Ouzoud Falls are the highest falls in North Africa. Ouzoud means ‘olive’ in the Berber language of Morocco, so it’s no surprise the plateau above the falls is draped with thousands of olive trees. The ground below is brick-red because of iron oxides in the soil.
Follow a short path to see the magnificent tableau of six different waterfalls cascading down the cliffside. It is a refreshing and rejuvenating sight here in a land often stricken by drought. Keep your camera handy for one photo opportunity after another. In the morning, if you’re lucky, you may glimpse a macaque monkey nearby. In the afternoon sun, you may see a gorgeous rainbow over the falls!
If you’d like to get a different perspective on Ouzoud Falls, you can walk down stone steps to the bottom of the falls. Better yet, hire a guide who can show you some caves along the way.
Savor a traditional tagine (own expense) at a restaurant in the shade of the olive trees before heading back to Marrakech. Your relaxing day trip to Ouzoud Falls concludes with drop-off at your hotel or riad at about 5pm.
.the falls were excellent
Well worth the journey
Take a pillow as the vehicle was not that comfortable
Company was efficient and polite
Trip marred only by 'recommended guide' for the waterfalls...who was rude when we said we didn't want his services
Most people do not need a guide!
The views speak for themselves.
I would highly recommend this tour. The drive from Marrekech is around 2 1/2 hours but don't let this put you off. Our driver was happy to stop if we needed to and talked about the local areas we drove through. I'd read a few reviews about not bothering with guides but once my girlfriend and I were there we decided to get one as we didn't want to miss anything and only cost around 25. The views from the top, bottom and walking around are nothing short of spectacular and the pictures don't do it justice. On route you come across some monkeys which you can hand feed and hold which was pretty cool on its own. Our tour guide spoke very good english and also took us to a local Berberer house to have a little look about.
It was a great day out and well worth the trip
