“An amazing place to both relax and experience local culture”
Reviewed April 14, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Kasbah Afrique is run by Redouin, an extremely friendly, hard-working, and good man, who makes great efforts to expose visitors to the valley's horticulture and scattered hillside villages. The Kasbah employs people from the surrounding villages, grows much of its own food, and obtains its lamb and beef locally. As such, it is a real boon to the valley's economy.

The valley itself contains three or four scattered villages, with a total population of perhaps one-to-two thousand. The villages are truly rural. Subsistence farming is the rule. We observed several shepherds and goatherds, along with their flocks. Each village contains a mosque. We also visited a local elementary school (with class in session!) and a synagogue. Hearing the sounds of the Islamic call to prayer flow through the air from surrounding mosques was truly cool to hear.

The people are generally quite friendly. Everyone speaks both Arabic and Berber, and most also speak French quite fluently. Alas that my own French is too poor to provide a solid basis for verbal communication. But the few phrases I know, smiles, and various hand gestures allowed some communication to occur.

The Kasbah itself lies on a hillside roughly midway along the valley. It has gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains, streams, and villages. It provides a very relaxing place to lounge by the pool, or take a cooking class. My wife and I also took a mule ride, led by some of the aforementioned locally-employed citizens. We met several British and Danish vacationing families, and had several enjoyable conversations with them, over a bottle of Moroccan wine.

I recommend Kashah Afrique very highly. I went there in hopes of getting some serious relaxation time, and I accomplished that. However, the thing that ultimately left the greatest impression on me was meeting the local people and seeing how they lived.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed January 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

What a beautiful stay we’ve had - we want to stay forever, and we’d happily join the team working here, who have welcomed us like family and couldn’t do enough for us. The setting speaks for itself of course so it would be impossible to be disappointed with the astonishing views. The bedroom cottages are just adorable. Luxurious and wonderfully comfortable and very big. Gorgeous views, our own roof terrace in the sun, a wood burning heater, a huge bed, a telescope for the stars, sun hats, bath robes... And the food... Every single meal was utterly delicious (and such generous portions - gym when we get back!) - we particularly recommend the Berber Chicken. Thank you to everyone on the team - We will be coming back!!

Kasbah Africa nestles in a valley in the Atlas Mountains. The view is utterly awe inspiring. The accommodation is luxurious, the staff helpful and friendly, the food is delicious and they can cater for all dietry requirements (veggie, vegan etc). Relax by the pool listening to the birdsong and rush of the river at the valley bottom. Take a guided walk up the valley to a Berber village where you relax in a villa with stunning views down the valley while learning to cook traditional Berber dishes. This a happy place, full of good humour and laughter. Also a place of calm reflection away from the stresses of city living.
