Driving or taking bus for going from marrakech to fez 3 days, route and how to check road conditions

by sndraco »

Hi

 

Planning on taking 3'ish days to get from Marrakech to Fez and could drive to ouarzazate stopping at Ait Benhaddou and Skoura  and again at Ifrane and maybe Meknes or taking several buses (marrakech to ouarzazate taxi to ait benhaddou etc, then ourzazate to Er Rachidia (assume no bus cuts through the Atlases) and onward)

I am going on my own in late Nov so a bit leery of driving esp. the N9 (hence the q on weather conditions) of course upside is more scenery and can stop in lots of places along the way and more freedom.

Suggetions/advice welcome.

Sallam 'lekum sndraco,

As you will be traveling within the next week or so (you say late November?), then you may wish to change your plans due to the past week's flooding around Ouarzazate. A small section of the Tizi n'Tichka pass (Marrakech-Ouarzazate) has been washed away.

Wa'alaikum as sallam Darren

I went to the CTM office today and they luckily had two buses to ouarzazate (decided not to drive), so plan is to spend Thu in Ouarzazate, leave in evening for Tenerhir, hike a bit in the gorge on Friday and then either take the bus from Tenerhir to Fes or Er Rachidia to Fez.

Ideally would be a night bus so can arrive at Fez in the morning. (Dont know if Tenerhir or Er Rachidia is better or if there are other alternatives)

Hi again sndraco,

Good to hear that CTM is continuing on regardless of the weather. As you're there on the ground and sound like you're totally in control, I don't need to give you any more advice. Other than to advise you to perhaps also look at the Supratours timetables with regards to your journey to Fez, as they may have an overnight service.

Safe travels.

Well done s,

If you have time in Rabat, check out the new Mohammed VI Modern and Contemporary and Art Museum.
