Enjoy a lunch of salads, meat, and vegetables tagine, with a dessert of local fruit accompanied by tea and Moroccan pastries. After lunch, make your way to the ancient silver capital of Tiznit to see the walled ramparts, go for a walk in the old medina, and browse the handmade Berber silver jewelry. Hold on for a bumpy ride to the Massa Valley, traveling alongside the 32,500 acres of Souss Massa National Park.
