If you are staying in Marrakech, then it is well worth taking a day trip to Ait Ben Haddou to visit the ancient kasbahs and marvel at this scene which seems straight out of a movie. In fact, Ait Benhaddou has played host to the epic movie, Gladiator, the hit series Game of Thrones, and many more famous films.
Arriving from Marrakech, Ait Benhaddou sits as if a mirage, in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Its earthen buildings hold memories of this once bustling trading post; a welcome sight to the nomadic travelers trekking across the Sahara Desert.
Ait Benhaddou is an ancient, fortified, red earthen village along a former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. Driving from Marrakech, it is reached via the Tizi n’Tichka Pass through the Atlas Mountains, you will enjoy the sceneries we will pass by, you will spend the full day exploring, then our driver will take you back to Marrakech to your Accommodation.
