With sweeping views of the Azzaden Valley and a backdrop of High Atlas peaks, Kasbah Africa perfectly blends sub-Saharan African lodge style with Berber warmth and charm to create a luxurious Atlas riverside retreat.
Perched on a mountainside above the banks of the Azzaden River Valley in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains (at the entry to Toubkal National Park, Ouirgane area), Kasbah Africa can be reached in little over an hour from Marrakech.
Offering a high degree of exclusivity Kasbah Africa has just eight stone-built deluxe suites, all with panoramic mountain and river views. Each suite has 40 square metres of living space and is furnished with hand-crafted walnut furniture with either two large singles or a super king size bed, wood burner, Berber rugs, a sofa and lounge chairs, spacious bathroom and private roof terrace offering spectacular and panoramic views – perfect for star-gazing.

There is also a two-bedroomed Atlas Berber Cottage enjoys a prominent valley side location with views across to the Takerkhort Nature Reserve and surrounding Atlas peaks.
