Ouzoud Falls

Ouzoud Falls

The Ouzoud Falls are the most magnificent and impressive waterfalls in Morocco and North Africa.

The waterfalls, 360 ft (110 m) high, are located near the village of Tanaghmeilt in the Atlas Mountains, 93 miles (150 km) northeast of Marrakech.

The walk up to the falls is very pleasant surrounded by thousands of olive trees. At the top you will be able to circle the cascades and enjoy this refreshing circuit while trying to detect the monkeys high up in their trees.

On the warmest days, the most daring tourists can have a swim in the valley’s pools. The water is very clean but icy cold.

Getting to the Ouzoud Falls

  • Rent a car: Driving in Morocco is not easy and some of the highways are not very well kept. If this is the best option for you, we suggest getting a GPS so as not to get lost.
  • Hiring a taxi for the whole day: You can hire a taxi for the whole day for approximately 80 – 100 € if you are good at haggling. Keep in mind that most taxi drivers speak very little English, the cars are normally very old and that the driving leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Book a day trip: With Introducing Marrakech, we offer day tours with English-speaking chauffeurs and hotel pick-up for just €35 per person. We also offer very low-priced private tours. Click here to book our day tours.
