Talataste Zat Valley excursion

Excursions from Marrakech, Marrakech

This is an excursion to the scenic and magnificent Zat valleyfrom Marrakech, which despite its spectacular scenes and cultural richness, has not been discovered by mass tourism yet.

 Drive along the Tichka road until you reach the lush green valley of Oued Zat and the rural market of Tighadouine (Wednesday market). This is the meeting point for the inhabitants of the valley (once a week) to exchange their goods and produce.

Our guide will walk us through the authentic village of Talataste to meet the locals and especially the artisans in order to discover the ancient local pottery which is the main income for this community.

We will be met at the British Moroccan Society Educational Centre to learn about this project and meet with the children.

We will then be invited to a local home for a typical Berber lunch.

Our guide will take us for a walk through the village where finally we will reunite with our driver and head back to Marrakech

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.
