2 day/1 night Tour:
Ait Ben Haddou by night… the real Berber life!
This program will allow us to spend 2 days at a real Berber family house! Starting from Marrakesh and walking through the Atlas roads we will arrive at the ancient village of Telouet, famous for its Kasbah and for being a focal point for the ancient commercial caravans that arrived in Marrakesh from Timbuktu. Then, we will go head to Ait Ben Haddou in order to discover the life, the habits of the ancient inhabitants of North Africa. A unique opportunity to get away from the daily routine, go back in time and live an experience hard to forget…
DAY 1: Marrakesh-Telouet-Ait Ben Haddou
Starting from Marrakesh and traveling along the Atlas Mountains we will arrive in Telouet for lunch. In the early afternoon crossing the Ounila Valley we will reach the village of Ait Ben Haddou where we will meet a Berber family who will welcome us with a traditional mint tea. Then we will take a tour with donkeys in the arena that hosted the gladiator film, waiting for the sunset from the highest point of the village. After watching it, we will return to the hosting family house and eat genuine food cooked according to traditional recipes. After dinner there will be a musical event where we can sing and dance on the notes of the ancient traditional melodies of the village. We will go to sleep admiring the starry sky from the terrace of our Berber house.
DAY 2: Ait Ben Haddou-Marrakesh
Wake up early to enjoy the sunrise. After breakfast with the family we will begin one of the most important traditions of Berber culture according to women involved to cook and men occupied to hard work in the fields. In this way women will have the opportunity to learn how to cook the ancient Moroccan recipes thanks to the ladies of the village who will teach us the old tricks of the trade. Instead, the men will take a walk through the village fields and discover how the irrigation system works, the local agriculture, and the architecture of the clay houses. Lunch will be prepared by the women with the females of the village. After the greetings to the family, we will leave the village to come back to Marrakesh.
