Welcome to Demnate


The 100-year-old olive groves dotting hillsides around Demnate produce Morocco’s best olive oil, with trace mineral salts, a golden colour and subtle woodsy flavours that compare favourably to Tuscan oils. Almonds are another renowned local product, and the flowering of the local orchards makes March a lovely time to visit.

2019 New Private Full Day Tour From Marrakech Ouzoud Waterfalls Excursion

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Cascades d'Ouzoud, Ouzoud, Tadla-Azilal RegionThis day trip travels east of Marrakech into the foothills of the High Atlas to the Cascades d’Ouzoud. Our first stop is usually at Demnate, a Berber market town. Sunday is a hive of activity on market day and a visit to the rural market is fascinating.A short drive from Demnate is Imi n’Ifri, a natural arch-shaped land bridge in the M’goun Geopark. Imi n’Ifri in Berber means ‘the grotto’s mouth’. A stepped trail leads down to a river bed and into the ‘mouth’ under the land bridge. Shoes with good grip are essential as they can be slippery. We continue to the Berber town of Azilal (market day is Thursday). From here we drive a scenic (and little-used) back route to Ouzoud, through the Western High Atlas National Park.Arriving at Ouzoud we’ll meet our local guide and explore the falls area. The best way to experience the 110m high falls is to follow the trail through the olive groves on the west side down to the El Abid river. There are several opportunities for photos, and if you’re lucky a beautiful rainbow may appear.There is plenty of time to relax at the bottom of the falls. On the eastern side, steps lead up past numerous tourist stalls and cafés. Near the top are a troop of ever-present and playful Barbary apes, usually keen to pose for photos in exchange for a handful of peanuts! There are many options for lunch at the falls - ask your driver for recommendations.Duration: 2 hours
