Discover Marrakech Sahara tour Ait Ben Haddou
Travel from Marrakech to Ait ben Haddou, to see the kasbah and cross the High Atlas mountains. Specifically, pass through the famous Tizi-n-Tichka pass, the highest one in Africa. All along the road, you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains. Sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves. Certainly, you can come down into the valleys to drive alongside the river bordered by oleander and fruit trees. In particular, the gardens are full of olives, walnuts, pomegranates, apples, pears and quinces. During your trip, you will see Berber women and children tend goats and sheeps, and climb even the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood. Then after the Tichka pass, you will leave the main road and take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah.
From there, you will continue for lunch at Ait Ben Haddou kasbah along the newly asphalted road.
In Marrakech desert tours, you will spend the afternoon exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou kasbah, which has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters. In the first place, it was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond.
