  • We start our journey by an excursion to Ait Ben Haddou from Marrakesh-trip, and to explore some of its Morocco Kasbah. Some of its Kasbah is still occupied by some Glaoui family. Berber villages are to be admired along the way to Ait Ben Haddou. The region encompasses beautiful natural scenes where many films were shot.

    We visit Telouet as one of the most spectacular Kasbahs in the Atlas, which was once the palatial residence and headquarters of the powerful Glaoui tribe. After Telouet, the tour takes a little used back road to Aït Benhaddou, a ‘fortified city’, or ksar, located approximately 20km before Ouarzazate.

     It is situated on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its kasbahs. Most of the town’s inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, ten families still live within the ksar. Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several major films have been shot there, including Gladiator and The Mummy. The final stop on the tour is Kasbah Taourirt and Kasbah Tiffoultoute, the ancient residences of Glaoui (Old Pacha of Marrakech), in Ouarzazate. Ouarzazate is the gateway to the Sahara and lies in a valley at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. Ouarzazate is also the film capital of Morocco, boasting one of the largest film studios in the world. Several historical movies were shot there, including Lawrence of Arabia, Asterix and Obelix, and Babel…
