After an awesome whitewater run, enjoy a great snack and drink before you make your way back to Marrakech. This river is perfect for all rafters. Join us as we get to show you one of the hidden treasures of Morocco. There are two runs per day for you to choose from (pickups at 08:30 & 13:00 from Marrakech - from the Club Med parking at the end of the horse carriages, Djeema el Fna (central Square).
