For truly breathtaking accommodation in the High Atlas Mountains take a look at our High Atlas Mountain Retreat – Dar Tassa. With 9 rooms and suites Dar Tassa offers authentic Berber guesthouse accommodation in Toubkal National Park in a hidden valley of the Atlas, only 1 hour 20 minutes from Marrakech. Combining Riad Africa with Dar Tassa creates a wonderful two-centre holiday of medina and mountains!

Also consider Maison Africa, a beautiful holiday rental riad with 3 suites, courtyard pool and panoramic roof terrace. This is available only on a private rental basis for families, friends and groups of up to 10 people.

If you are considering a trip to experience Morocco’s vast Sahara Desert wilderness consider our Sahara Safari Camp – one of Morocco’s first tented camps constructed in a style similar to those found in the safari parks of East Africa. Sleep in comfort in a caidal tent in a real bed with duvet and pillows and enjoy dinner in the dunes under a canopy of stars.  Daytime activities include camel treks, desert walks and 4×4 adventures.
