Perched on a mountainside above the banks of the Azzaden River Valley in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains (at the entry to Toubkal National Park, Ouirgane area), Kasbah Africa can be reached in little over an hour from Marrakech.

Offering a high degree of exclusivity Kasbah Africa has just eight stone-built suites with panoramic mountain and river views. Each suite has 40 square metres of living space and is furnished with hand-crafted walnut furniture with either two large singles or a super king size bed, wood burner, Berber rugs, a sofa and lounge chairs, spacious bathroom and private roof terrace offering spectacular and panoramic views – perfect for star-gazing.

Facilities include a large swimming pool and lawn, Berber tent, extensive landscaped terraced gardens with abundant fruit and olive trees, a bar, lounge and restaurant with log fires, and of course panoramic river and mountain views.

For those seeking escape and relaxation Kasbah Africa provides an antidote to the stresses of modern life. The Kasbah offers a wide range of local activities, day trips and tours including guided walks to nearby Berber villages, Atlas treks, Toubkal climbs, nature trails, mule treks, cooking courses, and 4×4 trips to remote mountain villages and beyond.

"Kasbah Africa was our idea of a perfect holiday; luxurious rooms, quiet, spotlessly clean & v reasonably priced. I am sure in a year or so it will be way out of our price range. The thick dressing gowns, binoculars, hat, slippers, telescope, bird book were all very welcome touches. All the flowers were in bloom, so Kasbah Africa was even prettier than your photos. We loved sitting on the terrace at night watching the farmers take their goats & sheep down to the river.

The staff again were great, especially smiling mama Fatima & Abdullah. The chef even cooked me goat 1 night after I mentioned how I would like to try it."


"Beautiful place. We had the most amazing few days at Kasbah Africa and the manager in charge, Redouane, could not have been more friendly, welcoming and accommodating, I would definitely encourage anyone to visit."


"My stay at the Kasbah was amazing, from point of arrival until the end the experience was great.
The staff was extremely friendly, and welcoming. Mohammed,was extremely helpful, and made sure every need of the guests was made. The kasbah itself is beautiful,very clean, and with the availability to sleep in private, and comfortable beds. Simply amazing and unforgettable. The cook, and the staffin general was very nice, and helpful. Food, was outstanding."
