Antelope and cattle are the most represented animals in Moroccan rock art, although elephants and rhinoceros are common.
We visited one of the sites this year, at Ait Ouaazik near Tazzarine in the pre-Sahara. That means at least a 3 day round-trip from Marrakech, but easily combined with a longer tour to the desert. Being in such a remote location we had the site to ourselves and were met by the local guardian who has now taken a special interest in the rock art and shows visitors around.
The guardian is ensuring no more are taken. We are captivated by the images and representation of life on the continent thousands of years ago.

The site lies in a broad albeit dry valley with occasional palm trees and Acacia trees providing verdant relief. It would be easy to picture a greener landscape in this part of Morocco.
We hope you enjoy some of the images we took. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
