Owner description: If you´re outdoorsy, go for a hike in a national park at the feet of the Atlas Mountains. Waterfalls and other natural beauty are in good supply. The tour provides good information on the park. The guides allow you to choose the difficulty of your hike, including factors such as altitude climbed and the specific types of sights that you would like to see. In any case, you can expect to be brought to many beautiful vantage points. Come with hiking gear.

My partner and I decided to do the one day excursion from Marrakesh to Imlil valley. The trip was well organised. We were picked up from our riad at 9am and drove for approx. 90 mins where we arrived in Imlil and was offered the customary glass of mint tea. An excellent walk of around 2 hours with our charming and informative guide, Mohammed, took us up to a nearby village which provided us with wonderful views of the valley and the mountains and then onto a guesthouse where we ate an outstanding tagine - probably the best food we had throughout our 4 days in Morocco – a very memorable day.

We incorporated two separate trips with Jamal and his team during our 10 days in Morocco. First to the Atlas mountains and then to the desert. It was absolutely spot on! They made sure we did a trek suitable to our standard and we had a fantastic night in a mountain village gite before returning to Imlil lodge, which is lovely. The camel trek in the dessert was really well organised and all really really fun! The whole trip went off without a single glitch and was very good value for money. An unforeseen highlight was spending time with the lovely guides and really getting to know them a bit while we were there.

From the first email enquiring about treks to actually doing it the process was so easy. Jamal responded to all my queries very quickly, arranged for us to be picked up in Marrakech and that was some 4 months before we arrived in Morocco. So the big day for our days trek in Toubkal arrived. The driver was on time and we drove out to meet Hasan our guide for the day. Hasan is fantastic, really knowledgeable and very friendly, what i particularly liked is that he paced himself with us, i was the slower one! We walked through the most stunning scenery for about 2 hours, the sky was so blue and the air so clean. We then stopped for a superb lunch of salads, olives, breads, fruits and tea whilst sitting on the roof top terrace taking in the amazing views. We then left to walk back down to the village stopping off at the womans Argan oil co-operative where the process was explained and the oil was so much cheaper than in the souks of Marrakech. The trek was so well organised and Hasan really was a fab guide. We hope to return next year to hike to the mountains sumit.

We highly recommend using Jamal for your Toubkal hike! We went for the 2-day hike in October 2013 and it was just what we were hoping for. Jamal replies to emails really quickly and can accommodate your requests. Our guide, Hassan, is the best! We all truly enjoyed his assistance and company – he is from the local village, speaks great English and is very pleasant to share the experience with. Remember your warm clothes (hat, gloves), hand warmers if possible, a head lamp (you start the ascent before the sun goes up) and SPF.

It is best to bring a backback in addition to your bigger pack. You put the bigger pack on a mule which walks a fair distance in front with its guide, so if you need something along the way (water, hand sanitizer, tissues, money for drinks and curios, etc.) you’ll need to carry it on you. You meet up with the mule and its guide at points along the way, though.

You can either sleep in tents or in a hostel at the base of the ascent, both which Jamal can arrange. It was quite chilly in October so I opted for the hostel but the trade-off is that it can be quite noisy since it contains several (narrow) bunk beds in a few rooms. The central lounge area is nice but toilet facilities are basic. You can buy chocolate, chips, soda and some other snacks at the hostel, but I didn’t see any clothing or other supplies up there.
