Three beautiful tiered waterfalls with a series of spectacular plunges.
You will be collected at 9.30 am from your hotel. Ouzoud is a two hour drive from Marrakech and a very pretty one passing through stunning and varied countryside.
Ouzoud is located in a valley, within a friendly Berber village with three beautiful tiered waterfalls with a series of spectacular wide to narrow plunges that drop 110m into the river below. The village is very charming. A delicious lunch at one of the pretty restaurants in Ouzoud surrounded by lime-trees or enjoy Moroccan specialties and freshly squeezed orange juice at one of the many cafes along the terraces by the falls. A local guide will take you on a walk down the falls and you may cross the pools of water at the bottom on a raft pulled by people using ropes!
Return to marrakech inthe afternoon by about 4 pm.
The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.
When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
The falls themselves were stunning but quite a long way off for a day trip they felt.

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.
The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
