Day 1 : Day Trip to Ait ben Haddou
We drive from Marrakech at 7 am to visit UNESCO World Heritage listing, the Ksar Ait Ben Haddou. It is one of the most extraordinary Kasbahs in Morocco , located near the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. It’s easy to see, why the site has been a popular setting for films including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. On our 4 hour drive from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou we cross the Tizi-n-tichka pass in the High Atlas Mountains. We will see hundreds of Berber villages with houses made from mud and straw. Here few things have changed the last hundred years – except thousands of satellite dishes on the roofs. Donkeys and mules are still the main means of transportation. In Ait Benhaddou a local guide will help us explore the narrow alleyways of the clay Kasbahs. 300 Berber families used to live here, but now it’s only home to half a dozen. We will visit one of these families, who will serve us traditional mint tea. Then we return back to Marrakech around 8 pm.
