Ait Benhaddou Morocco desert luxury tour

Ait BenHaddou, perched at the foot of the southern slopes of the High Atlas in the province of Ouarzazate, is the most significant “Ksar” of the Ounila valley. Ait Benhaddou Castle is a remarkable example of southern Moroccan architecture.

Inside the defensive walls, strengthened by corner towers and penetrated by a guillotine door, there are houses – some humble, others like small urban castles with soaring corner towers and upper portions decorated with brick designs – but also structures and common places. The oldest structures in this UNESCO World Heritage Center appear not to date from the 17th century, despite their construction and technology having been spread across the valleys of southern Morocco from the outset.

The region is known as a film destination, with Morocco’s major studios attracting large numbers of foreign production companies. To name a few, the popular TV series Game of Thrones and the movie Gladiator were both filmed there.

Morocco desert luxury tour in Ouarzazate

Ouarzazate, in south-central Morocco, is known as the “Gateway to the Desert” or “Moroccan Hollywood”. The southern city is situated high in the highlands of the Atlas, overlooking the plains. Despite its proximity to the highlands of the Sahara Desert, the city is lush with palm trees, orchards and gardens. The souk or craft centre, where stonecutters and sculptors on copper and silver rub elbows together, brings the streets to life.

The Kasbah of Taourirt in “Moroccan Hollywood” is a huge adobe structure that was once the palace of the basha of Marrakech. Atlas Corporation studios are nearby and well worth a look. These magnificent sets have made it possible to shoot great films on our outdoor stage.

During holidays, Ouarzazate is a popular tourist destination in Morocco, as well as a starting point for expeditions in and through the Draa Valley and the desert, making it one of the best luxury desert tours in Morocco.
