Before 8:00 a.m., we'll pick you up from your Marrakech hotel or hostel, setting off on an unforgettable journey along the captivating R207 route that leads to the coast. En route, we'll pause to witness a unique spectacle – argan trees inhabited by nimble goats perched on their lower branches, feasting on their leaves. This extraordinary sight, often featuring as many as 20 goats in a single tree, presents an ideal photo opportunity that you won't want to miss.
Our route also includes a visit to a women's cooperative engaged in argan oil production. Extracted from the tree's kernels, argan oil complements Moroccan bread meals and adds flavor to pitta bread. Beyond its culinary use, this oil serves as a beauty product, enhancing skin and hair health.
