PRIVATE DAY TRIP & EXCURSION FROM MARRAKECH TO AIT BENHADDOU KASBAH
Cross the magnificent Atlas Mountains to discover two of Morocco’s beautiful desert towns on a day trip from Marrakech.
DAY TRIP PROGRAM AND WHAT WE EXPLORE:
Vamos Al Desierto organizes private Marrakech excursions. We begin your small-group day trip with a pickup from your Marrakech accommodation. Hop inside your air-conditioned 4x4 or minivan and soak up the scenery as you travel into the Atlas Mountains. Learn about life in the mountain villages, and traverse the spectacular Tizi n'Tichka pass. Behold the vast Anti-Atlas region beyond the pass, and follow ancient caravan routes.
As we travel, hear about the merchants who traded slaves and gold along the route, and pass through desert hills, fruit groves and timeless villages. After around three hours, arrive at Ait Benhaddou, known for its well-preserved, UNESCO-listed kasbah. Head inside (own expense) to explore the adobe-built houses and streets, and learn how the kasbah featured in movies such as Gladiator.
