Located in the Middle Atlas, 200 kilometers northeast of Marrakech close to Azilal, the cascading 110-meter waterfalls of Ouzoud, is a famous tourist attraction. Situated in a verdant and lush green landscape that provides a striking contrast to the red earth made of sandstone, it is a breathtaking location filled with exotic birds and playful, entertaining monkeys. The three main waterfalls and several smaller ones create an amazing roar as the sparkling sprays of water bounce off one another and form a spectacular and continuous rainbow that illuminates the beauty of the most stunning waterfalls in Morocco.

At the foot of the waterfalls enjoy a refreshing swim in the water of the Ouzoud or relax with some mint tea along the water’s edge while admiring the lively and entertaining Rhesus monkeys.  Only 6 kilometers away enjoy the spectacular source of the falls and an invigorating swim in the sparklingly clear water.

Upon your return sample the splendid variety of Moroccan foods in one of the many inexpensive restaurants and shop for fantastic souvenirs in a variety of colorful shops. You will fall in love with this beautiful area and can extend your stay in stay in one of many choices of comfortable accommodations.
