Bin El Ouidane to Azrou 295kms

Leaving the hotel after breakfast the first 15kms we wind our way along the lakeside until we get to the village of Ouaouizerght where we refuel. 

Back in the Middle Atlas we follow beautiful backroads with no-one around except the occasional Berbere farmer and family tilling their land.

Then the rest of today’s roads are very scenic, and wind their way over various small mountain ranges staying north of the High Atlas, traversing through the agricultural Middle Atlas.  Lunch stop en route. 

About 100kms from our destination we enter the beautiful cedar forests this area is known for. Morocco has the largest Atlas Cedar tree forests in the world, in the Middle Atlas and The Riff mountains. Barbary macaques apes live amongst these trees too

This is the area with the largest concentration of Atlas Cedar trees in the world. They can grow as high as 35m. Maybe we'll get to see some barbary macaques apes that are known to live here!

Our 4* hotel, destination for the night, is set in a quiet location on the outskirts of the town, surrounded by cedar forests. 

Dinner in the hotel and maybe a game of snooker in their friendly bar area afterwards. Our hotel near Azrou in the Middle Atlas region of Morocco. Palais des Cerisiers - Cherry palace as this area has an abundance of cherry trees and blossoms in the springtime.
