day trip to essaouira from marrakech
Depart from Marrakech to be personally transported to Essaouira. On the journey you may see a few scattered villages and camels, sheep and goats grazing in the countryside.
The vegetation changes to Argan trees that only grow in the wild and which provide berries for local goats to eat. You may even see some precariously balance on the delicate tree branches. If you wish, it is possible to stop for some Argan oil tasting in a small cooperative run by local women, where the Argan oil is extracted from the trees. This multipurpose oil is very famous for its use in cooking and cosmetics.
