The only thing we didn't like is the very long drive. But Mubarak, our guide, made the trip very interesting with his stories about the country and its people. And our driver Ali, was a very safe and quiet driver who made you feel safe at all times. The visited places, buildings and places are madness.

Your experience

Highlights

  • Enjoy the drive through the colorful landscape of Morocco
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Kasbah Aït Ben Haddou
  • Visit the former royal residence Kasbah of the Pasha Glaou in Telouet

Description

Experience the impressive mountain landscape of Marrakech on your tour through the desert. Visit the famous mud city of Ait Ben Haddou and the former royal residence Kasbah Telouet.

The eventful excursion starts with a varied drive from Marrakech over the Tizi-N-Tichka Pass at 2,260 m altitude. During a stop you will observe the inhabitants of the traditional Berber villages in their daily work and stop for a little chat at the roadside. Then you reach the famous Kasbah Aït Ben Haddou.

The fortified clay city is located about 20km from the desert metropolis of Quarzazate and is probably the most impressive complex created in the typical Kashba style of southern Morocco. On site you will get an impression of the beautiful city, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. It is not without reason that it has been the scene of numerous historical and adventure film adaptations, Gladiator and Prince of Persia, for example, were filmed here.

For lunch you stop in a typical restaurant.

The way back towards Marrakech leads over only slightly frequented side roads through colourful landscapes to the small village Telouet. The place is especially famous for the Kasbah of the Pasha Glaoui, a traditional Moroccan building. In former times it served as a royal residence and stopover for trade caravans, today you can visit the slowly decaying remains. Nevertheless, the state rooms are still in good condition and you have the chance to admire artistic carvings and colourful mosaic tiles
