Dar Daïf Kasbah, Ouarzazate 

Ecotourism in Morocco 

For more than twenty years, Jean Pierre and Zineb, the first female mountain guide in Morocco, have restored this great home by imbuing it with the qualities of traditional Moroccan architecture. They have made it an exceptional place that recreates the atmosphere of the caravanserais of the past that offered travelers a refreshing atmosphere and respite. This couple can declare their “mission accomplished” at Kasbah Dar Daïf in Ouarzazate!

Ouarzazate  

I have an indelible memory of Ouarzazate, which I will always remember as the green gateway to the Sahara. It was in the shade of its fig trees and its grenadiers that we took a break before venturing into the immense windswept Sahara, this great desert.

I have since visited other deserts in the world, but I have never found such an indescribable emotion that assaulted me in the middle of the immense dunes of rock and golden sand, colored at dawn and at sunset by subtle nuances, and where the silence was broken only by the noises created by our presence. And what about those starry skies that will leave you truly speechless!

At Dar Daïf 

Dar Daïf means "guest house" and offers travelers a unique experience where babouches, traditional Moroccan slippers, await, to take you across old and colorful carpets.

There are cozy rooms, gourmet dining, a hammam, cozy corners, and the garden where one can take refuge and enjoy one of the books in the library or just the peaks of the Atlas Mountains, which culminate at more than 4000 meters above the horizon.

Let's talk for a moment about this carefully assembled library that offers 450 books about Morocco, the desert and other related subjects, such as the fauna and flora of the country. What a treasure!

And what about the "Eagle's Nest Room," with its large terrace, located on the roof, and from which you can admire exceptional sunsets? Not to mention, there is an accessible room for travelers who have reduced mobility.

Jean Pierre and Zineb have only one wish: to offer travelers a unique stay, both at their Kasbah, their hammam where they will offer you a scrub with black soap, massages and various treatments, as in their kitchen, where you will discover the secrets of making tajines with caramelized meat with honey and quince, gazelle horns with almond paste and even date ice cream.

And all around  

Resolutely committed to responsible tourism and ecotourism, they – along with their teams - will also help you meet local people and the richness and extraordinary biodiversity of southern Morocco, through many activities such as bivouac in the desert, trekking with camels in the mountains or in the desert, and taking a stroll in the gardens and palm groves for travelers with reduced mobility, with an adaptable special wheelchair.

In short, Jean Pierre and Zineh have managed to embody their passion for an authentic Morocco, by making Dar Daïf an exceptional place that they only wish to share.
