The Ouzoud waterfalls

Just over 200 km north-west of Marrakesh, these waterfalls are one of the most beautiful sights of the Middle Atlas mountains. They cascade down into a basin of limestone rocks surrounded by lush vegetation that is home to large families of macaque monkeys. These friendly creatures play - to the delight of tourists - in the numerous carob trees, feeding on their tasty fruit. Lunch in one of the various restaurants around the falls.
