09.00 Today, unearth another side of Morocco, the gorgeous Atlas Mountains - North Africa's greatest mountain range - and experience two different worlds: traditional Berber and modern luxury.
Upon your arrival in Imlil, embark on a journey to discover the fascinating Berber culture. Berbers are the original inhabitants of North Africa and they are composed of several tribes scattered throughout the region. Known as very proud and hard-working people, they have their own dialect, customs and traditions.
Along a narrow road, arrive at a village located on a small hill, where you are met by a local family and welcomed into their home. While visiting their humble house, you are shown the traditional oven in which Berber bread is cooked. Savor a sample of this fresh bread, accompanied by a refreshing mint tea as your host enlightens you, with the help of your guide, with tales of their family, history and culture.
Afterwards, you are transferred back to your Hotel.
Kasbah Tamadot sits in an idyllic location nestled among the breathtaking High Atlas Mountains, creating an immense sense of privacy. The property is the former home of Luciano Tempo, who filled it with beautiful antiques of Arabic, Oriental and Indian origin. The Kasbah was then purchased by Sir Richard Branson in 1998 and wonderfully restored to become one of the most luxury properties in Morocco.
Tamadot is full of peaceful courtyards, hidden staircases, landscaped gardens and breathtaking views. Many of the staff members come from the surrounding Berber villages, giving you a sense of staying in a Moroccan home rather than a hotel. Luxury rooms and suites are all individually decorated using traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques whilst the restaurant, bars and outdoor infinity pool all offer stunning panoramic views.
