This festival happens only 67 kilometers from Marrakesh in the village of Setti Fatma. The village is situated beneath the Atlas Mountains along the Ourika valley and it is one of a kind. Once a year, Setti Fatma opens its doors to tourists and Moroccan visitors alike. The Moussem, a traditional local festival dedicated to a marabout in the middle of August, is one of the three most important religious festivals in Morocco. It lasts four days and with its masquerades and musicians, it very much resembles a fun fair. If you don't mind the bustle of the throngs, then definitely attend.

By david.wallace32 | Posted 04/03/12 Tour Operators - Marrakech - La Palmeraie Marrakech Loisirs Is the best option to take when arriving for activities. We specialise in horse riding and quad biking. We do not cross hire, we own our own stables and quads and therefore give you the best price whilst meeting all safety regulations unlike the rest. Who we are: We are a family run tour company. Our expertise stems from the fact that we focus on giving the 100% genuine experience of holidaying in Morocco. Our guides are 100% English speaking local Moroccans whose aim is to treat their guests as their own. What we do: Unlike the big tour companies we focus on giving the traditional hospitality by providing the service ourselves; home from home, dedicating our personal time with you. You will never be in a large tour group of 20-50 people - that's a big NO NO! All our tours are privately run, in our private cars or minibuses. We will never bully you into taking excursions or trips that you don't want. We advise on individuals on their personal requirements then cater for their needs. Interests Examples tours: - Horse riding Camel riding - 4x4 tours - Sahara desert tours (camping also available) - Atlas Mountain treks - Ourika Valley water falls and scenic tourist area - Water Rafting - Villas & Apartments - Private car with driver available - Airport transfers - VIP - Hot Air Balloon rides Favourite Films Marrakesh is vibrant place with many things to do, you can sit back and relax in the cafes of up market city. Or you can experience the hustle and bustle of the Medina (Jem el Fenna) where the snake charmers and all sorts of exotic things take place. If you want to explore further, then why not escape the city and take a trek up the famous Atlas Mountain. Or ride a camel or a 4x4 in the sand dunes of the famous Sahara desert. Did I hear you say you're a bit of a daredevil? Then why not hire yourself high-speed quad bikes and explore the olive groves in the famous Palmaraie area. Where you can also do equestrian lessons or just go for a quick stroll with the well looked after Arab horses. Our motto is to provide an informal service, which treats and gives our guests 100% satisfaction most of our clients are referrals from friends and family (word of mouth).
