Itinerary

Day 1 starts at 0900, which is when you will be picked up from Hotel Tazi and transported to the Cascades d’Ouzod waterfall. Here you will be given lunch and a spectacular view of the falls. You will then be transported to the river camp where you will have a hearty meal in anticipation for the following day’s adventure. Day 2 starts with a safety induction before heading out onto the world class rapids. After a lunch on the riverside you will spend the afternoon tackling more rapids before reaching to the beautiful Mill Camp. On Day 3 you will take on some of the best rapids of the trip, rafting between two tremendous gorges beneath clear blue skies. You will then be given a well deserved floating lunch as you are pulled by motorboat to Bin El Ouidane. In the afternoon you will be transported back to Marrakech.
