Ait Benhaddou & Telouet Day Trip: Itinerary:
Ait Benhaddou is an interesting and long day trip from Marrakech after you cross the High Atlas Mountains section to reach the southern foothills & desert plains. Ait Benhaddou is a fortress made of a group of Kasbahs, it is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage listing since 1987 and home of about 8 families who are still living in the old part of the Ksar. The new section is home for many cafes, restaurants & hotels.
Traveling from Marrakech to Ait Benhaddou is a 4h drive along a windy road across the Tizi N'Tichka pass (2260m) to the highlands of the Berber villages with houses made from mud and straw. Afterwards, you carry through the salty valley of Ounila to get to Ait benhaddou kasbah/Ksar after the popular stop to visit the Glaoui Palace (20MAD/person entrance fee) & Kasbah in Telouet. Ait Benhaddou as a fortified village is considered a natural decor / set for many movies which were shot in the area. Depends on the hunger level, you either lunch first or take a guided walk of the ancient settlement, cross the dry river to get to top hill with your English speaking driver for the magnificent views and to dominate the kasbahs of Ait Benhaddou.
You will be picked up at 7 or 7:30 a.m from your hotel/ Riad in Marrakech by one of our colleagues, an English-speaking driver and travel in an exclusive licensed A/C vehicle. On this private escorted day tour to Ait Benhaddou through the Atlas Mountains, you will come to learn about the Berbers, the remarkable land of contrasts of the Saharan landscapes, the architecture (Kasbahs & Ksours) and the era of French protectorate with its influence on southern parts of Morocco.
