Things To Do

Mohamed and Ahmed can arrange itineraries, including other areas of Morocco through their extensive contacts so please do not hesitate to ask.  Examples of activities include......

  • Many walks and treks in the local area eg. the walk to Lake Tamda across Medium difficulty terrain takes around 4.5 hours there and 2.5 hours back

  • The village hammam (bathhouse) may be open during your stay.   Please ask about availability as this helps support the village and is a sustainable tourism project which won the Responsible Tourism award from the Moroccan government in 2012.  There are information sheets about using the hammam at the Kasbah.

  • Hire mules to do walks further afield (which provides local employment)

  • Visit Telouet Kasbah

  • Bourciod's minibus is quite an adventure!

  • Souk day (Thursday) to go and see what a real village souk is like with no pushy stall holders 

  • Visit a family for tea and cake or a meal and giving the money to the lady of the house to spend on things for herself or her children, spreading the benefit of tourism 

  • Star gazing! One of the best places for this as there is so little street lighting so no light pollution

  • Learn to make bread, tagine, couscous in the Kasbah or in a village home

  • Camping

  • Village football matches (very popular with visiting children and village children alike)

  • Get involved in the Tighza project, find out more on our Projects page

There are many more things to do, just ask and we'll can see what we can do.
