Surrounded by hundreds of acres of beautiful countryside, trees and small sleepy local villages, the famous Ouzoud Waterfall is a spectacular sight. With a height of about 110 meters and breathtaking water, it is definitely worth a visit if you need a break from Marrakech.
The drive there from Marrakech takes three hours, and on the way you can admire the surrounding scenery, including imposing red cliffs and vast expanses of oleander blossoms. There's also a good chance you'll catch a glimpse of some Barbary macaques.
Ouzoud Waterfall is fantastic for birdwatchers thanks to the variety of bird species found in the area, and is also popular with hikers exploring the nearby trails.
The Ouzoud Waterfall also offers many places to have lunch with one of the most incredible views in Morocco. The best view is from the top of the waterfall, though be sure to bring plenty of water as it is about 1,000 steps to get there.
Those who decide to climb the steps will be treated to one of the most incredible views in North Africa, so it's well worth the effort.
