    I would never connect somewhere like this with the hustle and bustle of Morrocco, but it looks absolutely amazing! And that’s such a great photo of you and the monkey at the end 🙂

      Thank you! Morocco surprised me in so many ways but the variety of landscapes was particularly amazing! Definitely recommend it!

    I love waterfalls! There is something so romantic about them but I can’t put my finger on what but either way, I loved this! I have to confess to being a bit of a dime bar myself when it comes to wearing flip-flops on a walk sometimes, clearly I don’t think ahead and just think “waterfall – relax!” forgetting that sometimes there is a trek to get there. Your view of the waterfall is fantastic, and isn’t that cheeky monkey adorable (and the little one shelling peanuts tee hee). Great story, thanks or sharing.

      Thanks Angie – I usually play it safe and have hiking shoes with me as you never know when you’ll want to go off the beaten path! It was definitely worth the 3 hour drive each way! Beautiful place!

    Wow! This looks amazing! I never would have guessed this to be Morocco! I could spend all day at the waterfalls and hanging out with the monkeys. This is so cool!

      Thanks Jenn – I know, not the kind of landscape most people imagine when thinking of Morocco! Was a really cool day out!

    You really did see lots in Morocco! these falls look beautiful, not something I’ve heard people doing as a day trip from Marrakech, so thanks for sharing. Great photos with the apes! and love the taxi story too!

      Thanks Garth – it was something a couple of people at the hostel suggested and we just decided to go for it! It’s not the most popular day trip and it’s quieter as a result! Had a great time!

    Ouzoud Falls was already at the top of my list for a return to Morocco and you’ve cemented it. I was looking at day trips from Marrakesh when I was there but ran out of time. Love me a good waterfall and they look amazing. The photo you and the monkey holding hands is priceless mate!

      David, there are so many so I was definitely happy that I went for this one. Such a stunning place and definitely worth the 3 hour drive in a minivan! The monkey shot is great and the photographer won’t stop reminding me either!

    It sounds like a great day and it looks so beautiful. Love that photo of you and the ape. On a different note – don’t you just love it when locals tell you not to worry about your safety! I remember about 6 years ago in Thailand we hired a motorcycle. They gave us one helmet. When I asked for a helmet they told me I didn’t need one, just the person driving the bike. The police didn’t fine you if the passenger had no helmet. It took me a while to explain that my head was worth more to me than a fine, and it (my head) wasn’t shock-proof! I had to wait for another hour or so to get the helmet. Hubby and I now travel with our own helmets when we think we will spend much time on bikes!

      Kelly, you’re right, it can be pretty amusing unless it’s actually putting my life in danger! The approach to safety in some countries is interesting to say the least. The helmets are a great idea!

    Amazing! Love your adventure hiking there with your guide and the roar of the waterfall before arrived. How fun to hop on a floating platform with real chairs. Great photos and I would love to visit Ouzoud Falls as a day trip from Marrakech. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks, Stephanie. It was a great hike and such an amazing place! The floating platform was fun and I’m still amazed at the guy’s strength!

    Nice monkey pic! I’ve been close but I haven’t had chance to visit Morocco yet. Ouzoud Falls looks like a great chill out spot to relax oat for the day.

    Nice pictures!

    You said you paid 200 dirhams per person, this seems good! As I look online now it seems to be more than that so I guess we should just shop it and book it once we are in Marrakech for better prices? :p thanks!

      Thanks Gui and YES absolutely shop around! Most accommodation will give you an option to book tours. I booked mine through the Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge where I stayed!

    Even though we know there are mountains in Morocco, we didn’t expect to see waterfalls, for some reason. We’re just so conditioned to think of souks and the Sahara…just goes to show that you have to be open to a country showing you what it’s all about, instead of thinking you know. Great stuff – thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful pictures! I am hoping to go to the waterfalls in October. Any suggestions on lighting (i.e. does time of day matter), viewpoints or any other “photo helps” you may have? Any other favorite spots in the area?

    Thanks! After seeing your pictures I really want to go!

      Hi Rebecca – we were there in the middle of the day so it was pretty sunny. I would love to have stayed until sunset to see how the light would have changed but we had to get back Marrakech. If you are coming by tour, chances are you will be there during the same time so may have to work with what you’ve got. The cafes on the slopes to the left of the falls are a great place to get shots without the tourists! Hope this helps!
