The Imouzzer region of Ida Outanane (Tanani Country), is unquestionably the most popular site in this mountainous area of the High Morocco Atlas. This horseback ride starts from the surroundings of Souss Massa and takes you to the heart of the Berber country of the Ida Outanane. The Tanani country is a group of Amazigh tribes, which only joined the central government in 1927. The province of Ida Outanane is famous for the different varieties of honey found there. This peculiarity gives its name to the road that leads to the village of Imouzzer, called: the honey road. This region is home to the largest and oldest traditional apiary in the world, a true treasure of Berber heritage. This region is also known for its cultivations of terraced almond trees, its deep valleys, its waterfalls, its palm groves, and its villages perched on top of the cliffs.

GUEST REVIEWS
Justine (France) - October 2023

Guide: Hassan. Nothing to say, it was perfect !
A perfect horse. Tack: everything was comfortable!
Accommodation: Very good choice of hostels. Perfect lunches and dinners meals. Beautiful discoveries !
Cap Rando Services: Everything is always very clear and your responses are always very quick !
For this trip, I advise you to tell future registrants to bring all-terrain shoes. Ankle boots are not suitable in these rocky and beautiful spaces (although it was ok for me).
It was honestly really great ! You have chosen the local facility very well.
