Imider

Souss-Massa-Draa  >  Morocco

This area is a wadi about 10km east of the Tagtilt Track and can therefore be easily reached from there.

Description

The Pharaoh Eagle-Owl, Lanner Falcon and Western Mourning Wheatear (Maghreb) breed in the Imider wadi. However, these species are not always easy to find. With the Egyptian Nightjar and the Lanner Falcon the fossil hunters who are present can help. They sometimes know where the birds can be seen.

Details

Access

From the outskirts of Imider you drive 1.5km to the west on the N10, where you turn left onto a small dirt road. After 150m, park the car and head west into the wadi. If you dare you can do a circular route but you have to climb a small rock face.
