Visit Ouzoud waterfalls, Morocco

Waterfalls, Moroccan souvenirs, and tajine, accompanied by a walk in nature. Who is ready for a day at Ouzoud Falls?

On a sunny winter Sunday, we visited the Ouzoud Waterfall. On our way to Marrakesh, we couldn’t skip the enormous waterfall, falling a total of 110m. It is not only the beautiful nature that attracts tourists and locals to the area. Many restaurants and coffee places are open all year round serving tasty Moroccan dishes and typical fruity drinks. For the ones searching for a souvenir, there you will find tons of them.

From Marrakech by car

Many people visit the cascade from Marrakech. Numerous tours including a guide can be found, but I don’t see why somebody would need a guide there.

The easiest way in my opinion is by renting a car and driving there on your own.


There is guarded parking in the upper part as well as in a lower part of the waterfall.

Parking costs around 10 MAD (1 euro) or whatever you agree on with the guard.

We chose to have a coffee at the nearby Hotel de France and left our car there. We recommend parking in the upper part as from there you explore the village and get to enjoy a nice walk next to the river.

Plus from the upper one, you will see the waterfall from its highest point. We promise you, the 2 minutes more walk are definitely worth it.

The walk

The pleasant walk around the magnificent waterfalls is easy, but definitely not stroller friendly. In case you are coming with a baby, better take a baby carry bag. You do not need special shoes, however, sandals or flip-flops wouldn’t be my first choice.

From the highest point, you have to turn left, then right. The small path will lead to the lower parking, where you will find many restaurants and places for a drink.
