Photographer's Note

We arranged for a taxi (about $100) to take us from Marrakech to Tanaghmeilt - about a three hour drive - and then had our driver wait a few hours, as we wandered about the area, before driving us back. It was worth the effort and expense.


Ouzoud Waterfalls (French: Cascades d'Ouzoud) (110 m high) are located in the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km north-east of Marrakech, in Morocco.

It is the most visited site of the region. In the vicinity, Green valleys, mills, orchards and a superb circuit of the gorges of the El Abid River (in Arabic, "Slaves' River" ), are found.

Ouzoud is the Berber word for "olive", referring to the nearby olive trees.

The bottom of the falls is accessible through a shaded path of olive trees. At the summit of the falls, there exist a dozen of old small mills that are still in use. In the twilight, one can observe whole troops of monkeys.
