There are vast landscapes during the trip, with a few villages, dromedaries, sheep and goats' herds grazing in peace the few dry and seldom herbs.The vegetation then changes to argan trees which only grow in the wild and on which the goats climb to eat berries. If you wish, it is possible to stop for argan oil tasting in a small cooperative totally ran by women, where the argan oil is extracted. This oil is very famous for its uses in cooking and especially in cosmetics.
A few km further away, there is a panoramic view on Essaouira , a small blue and white town which reminds us of breton port towns. Once you arrive in the port, you are free to make your own moves. You can have a stroll on the quays which are full of life, where you can watch fishermen unloading their catch of the day, fishing boats coming back to the port and all the activities linked with the work of fishermen. Lunch can be taken in a restaurant where it is possible to choose all the seafood or fish you want to eat.
The visit of the town is pleasant and varied : the ramparts, the Medina which is the place where you will see a number of local artists and lots of craft shops, a lot of them exhibiting craft objects made of thuya wood. Marquetry remains the speciality of Essaouira . If you feel like it, you can spend part of your day at the beach. Return to Marrakech at 6 or 7 p.m..
This trip start in the morning at 8am to Ouzoud waterfalls (110 meters high), situated in the middle of a surprisingly green area, are amazing in a country that is often hard-hit by drought. More than 140 km away from Marrakech, the earth is brick-red, saturated by iron oxide and contrasts with the green carpet of thousands of olive trees planted on the plateau. Olive tree is translated into “ouzoud” in the local language, thus the name of these waterfalls… . You will discover the waterfalls from the top.
To fully enjoy the panorama, it is recommended to take the small path on the left to arrive on the first level. From there, the view is just stunning! There is not only one but six streams crowned with a double rainbow thundering down the rocks in a cloud of droplets. The canvasses of this circus are covered with a green vegetation and sparkling moss under the sun. You can catch a glimpse of the plunge pool around 100 meters below.
If you are lucky and if it is the morning, you can also see macaque monkeys that live in their natural habitat. It is possible to continue the trek down to the bottom of the waterfall taking a number of stone steps. The visit can also be continued by taking a loop following the wadi course. (Although it is preferable to get a guide to bring you by some small caves). The typical Moroccan lunch, a delicious tajine, can be taken in a restaurant in the shade of the olive trees.
