Ait Benhaddou Vacation Packages

Aït Benhaddou is a ksar, or a fortified village, built entirely out of native earthen clay, which was one of the key links on the trans-Saharan trade route from Marrakech. It was built in the 11th century due to its strategic position on a hillside next to the Ounila River. Once housing everyone who lived in the area, the ksar is now home only to a few families, with most townspeople living in the valley. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is open to tourists, giving glimpses and flickers of authentic Berber life still being lived to this day.

Please note we do not offer hotels or other activities in this city at this time, but you can explore it by choosing it as an addition on one of the packages listed below.
