Information about the places you will visit:


Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah

The Ait Ben-Haddou Qasar in Ouarzazate province, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, is one of the finest examples of southern Moroccan architecture. This ksar is built entirely from pise (a building material made from raw earth, analogous to a cobbler) and can be reached by a path that stretches for several kilometers. You park in the large car park at the entrance to the “modern” village, from where you can see the magnificent reddish-ochre Kasr. The river “El Maleh” separates the village from the Kasr, which is now home to just a few families. Crossing the Oued on foot or by mule, you enter the village through the main gate leading to the village house museum. Once inside the museum, you realize the fragility of this tamped-down earth building. One storm is enough to bring down the building….. I recommend you take a walk through the streets, climb to the highest point to see the whole valley below, and let yourself be captured by the atmosphere and the inhabitants who will not hesitate to tell you their story.

This extraordinary place has already served as the setting for the films Lawrence of Arabia, Diamond of the Nile, Tea in the Sahara, Indiana Jones, and most recently, Babel.


Telouet Kasbah

The kasbah of Telouet, sometimes called the palace of Glaoui, is a kasbah built between the 18th and 20th centuries.

Located in the small Berber village of Telouet in the rural municipality of Telouet in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, it was inhabited and fitted out by Pasha Tami El Glaoui. After his death in 1956, the Kasbah was looted and abandoned. Inside, the architecture and walls testify to the exquisiteness of the interior.

The palace is situated on the outskirts of the small Berber village of Telouet in Morocco. Because of its strategic location in the High Atlas, the inhabitants of the palace were privileged to be on the route of trade caravans and close to important salt mines.

Today, the Kasbah and the village can be reached via a branch of the P31 Tichka road that connects Marrakech to Ouarzazate.


Ouarzazate Studios

Moroccan Hollywood or Holly Ouarzazate is a caramel-colored oasis framed by a clear blue North African sky, with countless clay kasbahs, mountains, dry plains, valleys and green oases, palm groves, and villages of red or ochre earth that give the region its charm and tourist appeal.

A landmark in the town is the Kasbah of Taourirt, which belonged to the Glaoui family and was probably built in the mid-18th century.

It is depicted on the new 50-drama banknotes and is located close to the medina.

The Moroccan town at the confluence of Wadi Ouarzazate and Wadi Dades (High Atlas), which after their confluence form Wadi Draa, is the center of a large region in southern Morocco.

Ouarzazate with its 100,000 inhabitants resembles both the southern foothills of the High Atlas and the proximity of the desert.

On the doorstep of the great south of the Kingdom, the majestic Ouarzazate is an atmospheric mixture of oases, kasbahs, flower-laden valleys, and a vast desert plain that attracts tourists of all nationalities to discover its natural beauty.

The kasbahs are protected as humanitarian heritage and some kasbahs have been converted into tourist residences.

The city of Ouarzazate is also thriving in terms of tourism and cinema. Ouarzazate has an international airport which can be reached by road from Marrakech.

It is one of the most sought-after Moroccan filming locations for filmmakers from around the world.

In addition to the landscape, one of the strengths of this location is the quality of the light, which shines on an average of 300 days a year.


Merzouga Desert – Erg Chebbi dunes

At the gates of the great golden desert, Merzouga and Erg Chebbi are among the top tourist attractions in south-eastern Morocco. In this ochre desert, the monumental dunes move and warp in the wind, offering travelers a sight as colorful as it is spectacular. The further east you go, the wilder the landscape becomes. With a family, as a couple, or even alone, this is the perfect excursion!

Merzouga is a small Saharan village in south-eastern Morocco, at the foot of the Erg Chebbi dunes, in the Tafilalet valley. For centuries this region has been a crossroads of civilizations in the African desert. Numerous hostels and kasbahs are located along Erg Chebbi. Some are run by Berber families who will introduce you to all aspects of their culture and gastronomy. You will be in love with this landscape and its generous Berber people.


Marrakech: Red City

Marrakech is a city in the south of the country that was the capital of Morocco during the Almoravid, Almohad, and Alaouite dynasties before the arrival of the French colonizers.

The country was called the Kingdom of Marrakech and the name Morocco is still in use today.

It is one of the so-called imperial cities, a world-renowned regional trading metropolis, and an important handicraft and religious center.

Today, it is a cultural city, a source of inspiration for artists, a trendsetter, a venue for major events, and of course, an important tourist destination. The red city of Marrakech is rich in must-see sites and your visit is incomplete if you didn’t see all of the sites.
