Map of the Ouarzazate area.



The city of Ouarzazate is a little different from other Moroccan cities, it appears to have been designed with tourism in mind, having a long wide street and number of good hotels.
The city has a well preserved Kasbah and Palace of Glaoui, while the whole area has been extensively used as a film set.

Ouarzazate can be accessed by road from Marrakech - a 200 Km journey taking through the stunning Tizi-n-Tichka pass, rising to 2,260m (7,400ft) above sea level, through the High Atlas. There is also an airport at Ouarzazate but you will have difficulty finding international flights heading there.

The following golf courses are in the Ouarzazate area -

Ouarzazate Royal Golf Club, a 9 hole course, approximately 10Km east of Ouarzazate
