    • About agressive people (??) in Mhamid

      Ouarzazate Mar 22, 2016 at 9:44 AM

      Hi all.
      I'm going to Morocco for the second time in April.
      Doing some research about visiting The Draa region and trekking in Erg Chegaga, I run into three people from different places who have warned me that people in Mhamid are agressive.
      I could ignore one of them since she's running a riad in Tamegroute and is obviously interested in keeping me there.
      But another one is an acquaintance who is original from Ouarzazate and runs a riad in Marrakech where I'm staying at the end of the trip, and the other is a tour guide I consider reliable. Both say about 30% of people there are agressive and recommended me to hire a local guide.
      Does anyone know why Mhamid people would be agressive while inhabitants in the near Oulay Edriss are not? I mean, traveling alone, is there in that region anything different from the rest of Morocco I have to consider in terms of safety ?? Of course I'm not planning to approach the frontier or crossing the desert alone. I'm talking about going alone and visiting the town and taking a grand taxi, that sort of things.

      Thanks for any comments.

      Ouarzazate - Demnate (R307)

      Ouarzazate Jan 11, 2014 at 3:04 AM

      We'd like to cross the Atlas from Ouarzazate to Demnate via R307 road with a small car (so no 4X4 or similar) I just checked some pictures and I found some where I haven't seem any asphalt. So around 10/March do you think is it doable with a small car? And if so, how long should I count for the trip. I am a good driver so that shouldn't make a problem.
      Thank you!

      Thanks a lot to everyone for your comments and quick help on the earlier post. We still plan to take a bus from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and drive onwards. I am hoping to get your inputs on just 2 pending things:

      1. Car rental at Ouarzazate: Can someone recommend a good and cheap car rental place in the downtown area? I have checked out Hertz/Avis/Budget/EuroCar and was wondering if there was another reliable place. Also, will a sub-compact or compact car (like Ford Ka) be okay for a drive into Merzouga?

      2. CTM bus schedule: Does anyone know if there are any evening buses from Ouarzazate to Marrakech? We start in the morning from Merzouga and need to be in Casablanca by next morning. If we don't fly from OZZ, wondering if we can still get there.

      I came across Ouarzazate, which looks like it is very near to some great scenery. However, I will be dependent on public transportation (buses, taxis, etc.) and am wondering if it is feasible to visit for example the valley of Draa, and other near-by areas without renting a car.

      Bus times from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh

      Ouarzazate Nov 2, 2008 at 6:54 AM

      hello all

      I hope someone knows the answer to my question.

      My partner and I are travelling late December (the week before Christmas) to Morocco.

      Our itinerary is to set off from Marrakesh by bus to Ouarzazate and then hire a car to travel from Ouarzazate to the Draa valley, Dades gorge etc.

      We have travelled to Morocco several times before but never in that region. I am aware that Supratours run to Ouarzazate from Marrakesh as do CTM.

      I have the time details for leaving but I really need to time travel details for setting back off from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh. I need those details in order to pre-book the car hire, most car hire companies require a time of pick up which I cannot give at the moment.

      These are the details that I have for the outward journey, but I need the return times.

      CTM :: leaves 11am – arrives 3pm or leaves 4pm and arrives at 8.30pm (2 journeys a day)

      Supratours :: leaves 2pm – arrives 8pm

      Notice how Supratours take a lot longer to get there...

      Many thanks for all your input, I realise that this is a frequently asked question.

      I'd like to travel from Marrakesh to Ourzazate by bus (CTM) during the last week of November. Would that be difficult? I'm not sure what happens with those mountains in November - does it snow?! Also, would I be able to get a ticket when I arrive in Marrakesh (couple of days before travelling by bus). I can't see any way to book in advance on their website.

      Thank you very much.
