Q1.Do I need hiking clothes in the Mountains?
Ouzoud is a mountainous area with mild temperatures in winter and relatively warm during summer months. Comfortable outdoor footwear and outerwear that you can layer are recommended.
Q2.Can I Feed Ouzoud Monkeys?
Please kindly note, we strongly support responsible and animal-friendly travel. In order to protect the natural environment and all its species for generations to come, we kindly advise our customers to responsibly feed local barbary monkeys. Please be aware that only natural foods are suitable for animals. Most monkeys eat nuts, fruits, seeds, palm dates, and flowers. These can be purchased in the village of Ouzoud from local shop owners or along the way to the waterfalls. No sweets, cookies, or bread should be given to local animals. Thank you for your cooperation and support!
