This tranquil day first allows you to be with the ladies of a couscous co-operative and to gain instruction on making couscous and, of course, trying this for yourself. Lunch will be taken with them too (as well as a traditional second breakfast before you start your "couscous cookery chores").
The afternoon is a 4 x 4 trip across the Marrakech Plain and amongst the Jbilet hills, viewing traditional rural lifestyles. Many stops will be taken, as wished, in order to take in the views, the ambience and to savour, hopefully, a few chance encounters with the native people and their activities. A village will be visited to better understand the building styles, materials and functions.
As the sun descends in late afternoon, a vantage point will be chosen from which to view the sunset. Mint tea, a range of nuts/nibbles and a selection of Moroccan patisserie will be provided to ensure a cosy end to an exhilarating day.
In early evening you are returned to your Marrakech accommodation.

An outline of the day
The afternoon is an extensive 4 x 4 trip across the Marrakech Plain and amongst the Jbilet hills, a chance to understand traditional countryside lifestyles and activities, both their demands and their pleasures. Several stops will be made to take in the views and also to engage with any local people we meet.
As the sun lowers, a magic moment will be enjoyed with mint tea, nibbles and Moroccan patisserie. An ideal spot will be chosen from which to view the setting sun before then being returned to your accommodation in Marrakech.
