Getting to Ait Benhaddou
The nearest towns are Ouarzazate and Marrakesh.
• Buses do not go there so book rental car or a taxi.
• Car Rental is best from Marrakech. It’ll be a full day trip but it’s a beautiful scenic drive and well worth the time and money.
• Consider overnighting in Ait Benhaddou to enjoy the Ksar in different lighting conditions. It looks very different at sunrise from sunset.
