The highest fall is 328 feet (100 metres), it stands on top of the Azilal region, it overlooks the Tanaghmeilt village. A natural beauty which is the second tallest Waterfall in Africa. Its name means ‘the act of grinding grain’, in the local language Berber. Cascades d’Ouzoud are a collection of falls located in Morocco. Each of the falls vary in size from wide to narrow, usually waterfalls plunge from narrow to wide. The water can be chilli which is lovely on a summer’s day, tourists and local people swimming in it.

Throughout the waterfalls are green valleys and orchards. There are grooves of olive trees, oak trees, pomegranate trees, lime trees amongst others. The falls provide visitors with stunning views and strenuous, rewarding experiences for hikers. The roar of the waterfalls and bubbling water

There are many locals and national associations that lead projects and preserve this beautiful site. During the spring summer months is when the greenery stands out in full bloom. In the summer many people picnic along the falls and ponds. You can also swim in some of the ponds. There are also cafes and restaurants along the falls.

On your Ouzoud Waterfalls Day Trip From Marrakech tour you will also see the wild monkeys, these monkeys are friendly as they are used to seeing people. They roam the trees and waters, it’s best to watch them from a distance and they have no boundaries when it comes to personal space! A great time to visit the falls in mid to late afternoon. You will see dancing rainbows when the sun catches the falling water.

You may also see the Barbary ape, usually spotted at daybreak or an hour before dusk when they come out to drink from the river. You could be fortunate and see the jackals and wild cats too!
