Ouzoud Falls Trip Itinerary

We’re yet to take a day trip to the beautiful Ouzoud Falls that said it wasn’t worth the journey, especially when the trip is completed in our luxury 4wd vehicles.

There’s not a Moroccan travel brochure worth its salt that doesn’t photograph or feature the ‘Cascades d’Ouzoud’; a stunning set of cascading plunge pools reaching well over 300ft, surrounded by striking rock formations, fascinating flora and monkeys!

We’ll travel in style direct to the falls where we can organize anything from boat trips along the Oued Tissakht, bird watching expeditions, monkey encounters or even nearby quad biking adventures.

Of course, food is available for lunch at one of the fantastic hotels and restaurants that surround the falls. Although still a mainly rural area, Ouzoud Falls is a popular Moroccan day trip from Marrakech and big pull for travelers, so the locals are quite used to handling Western tastes and hygiene standards.

Please, let us know about any food allergies or intolerences before you travel so we can make arrangements to cater to them.

Finally, we’ll return you safe and satisfied back to Marrakech for around 5.30pm.

Ouzound Falls Day Trip FAQs

How far is Ourika Valley from Marrakech

The distance is around 160km, which can take between 2.5 and 3 hours drive depending on the conditions. We can only promise that the waterfalls are well worth the drive.

Are Cascades d'Ouzoud and The Ouzound Falls the same thing?

Yes, Cascades d’Ouzoud means The Falls of Ouzoud or Ouzoud Waterfalls in French, as Morocco has a long history with France.

What about Monkeys at Ouzoud Falls?

It’s true, there are monkeys at Ouzoud Falls, more specifically Barbary Macaque monkeys – a small, brown and cute variety.

Although wild, some of the monkeys have become pretty tame. It’s really tempting to get up close with them, but we advise guests do so at their own risk – wild animals can be unpredictable.

Can we swim in the Ouzoud falls?

Yes, it is often possible to take a dip in the falls – just let us know about your intentions to do so as there are a few rules you may wish to follow.

What other activities are available on the Ouzoud falls trip?

You may be able to take a ride on a rigid inflatable into the plunge pools themselves, and there is also a popular quad-biking activity nearby. Other than that, enjoy the monkeys and the huge range of birds that visit the falls.
