Ait Ben Haddou is Morocco’s best-preserved and most beautiful Kasbah; it’s a grouping of smaller Kasbahs. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddo Kasbah is a fortified hilltop town built in the 14th century on the traditional caravan route between Marrakech and the Sahara.
The Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou has been featured in numerous films. We will leave Marrakech at 9:00 a.m. for our day journey to Ait Ben Haddou Kasbahs, passing via the High Atlas route on the Tizi N’Tichka Pass, which gives through the highest mountain in North Africa.
