Excursion to Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou in private and at your leisure

You will travel through the stunning hilly, desert, and fortified landscapes with kasbahs on this journey to Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou. It is a one-way trek that leaves Marrakech and travels into the interior of the Atlas Mountains to the top of the Tichka pass. You will come across towering structures like the former residence of the Lord of the Atlas or the renowned Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, one of the biggest and finest maintained in Morocco.

Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate, the Hollywood of Morocco

The two primary destinations on this itinerary, Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou are both appealing from various angles. As for Ouarzazate, which is frequently referred to as the “portal to the desert,” we will find that it is a town that has been well-prepared for tourism and is quite new given that it was founded in the early 20th century. However, it contains attractions like the Al Mouahidine Square, the Central Market, and the Craft Souk. Of course, there are also the Atlas film studios, which include visitable mythological Seventh Cinema era sets.

Ait Ben Haddou, the best preserved Kasbah in Morocco

Regarding the excursion to Ait Ben Haddou, which is a stronghold outside of Ouarzazate and was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, you will enjoy seeing a location where several well-known movies, like Lawrence of Arabia and Babel, were filmed.

Although we will stop at other locations earlier, particularly in the initial half of the trip, like the port of Tichka, which is the highest in the nation, this is the final stop on the tour of Ouarzazate and its surroundings. The renowned Kasbah of Telouet or Kasbah of Glaoui, the former residence of the legendary El Hadj Thami El Mezouari el Glaoui, widely known as the Lord of the Atlas, will also be open to us.
