Camping Just Outside Marrakech. Ourika Camp.

This site Is a 30 minute plus depending on traffic bus ride from Jemaa el-fna Square and the busses are busy, so much so the doors would not open at one point due to the people (school children) packed In behind them. All I kept thinking and telling the boy's was soon you'll be In the swimming pool. The Ourika Camp Is set behind tall walls and a secured gate with someone there 24/7. It's set up for the moto home tourist passing buy but for us It was great. For once a level area with electricity and the swimming pool and a small restaurant to grab a coffee. Only thing different than our other places was It wasn't free or that cheap. The guy's looking after the place were great also and very friendly with the lads.

 450DH for the three nights, works out about 156DH a night, £12 a night. Expensive for a tent In Morocco but hey the pool.
    After tent set-up was done nothing really was done for three day's. We went for a small walk each day to the nearest village for supply's, visited a garden centre which was lovely and great to look round, they had a beautiful pond full of koi carp and a terrapin which you could view from the bridge over the pond and so much pottery It was like a maze as we walked through. We also used up one of our days at the very famous Jemaa el-fna Square which I've written about In the blog. The rest of our time was spent swimming, reading and just having a laugh around camp. Lucky for us the pool was ours as no one visited the pool while we were the there and the camp was quiet.
