Kasbah Du Toubkal - Francesca Haywood - August 2019
"A place I have always wanted to visit is the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, it is somewhere I have heard many people talking about and mention how unique and beautiful it is. Last month I was offered the opportunity to visit Imlil and take on the trek to summit Mt Toubkal. Not being one to turn down a challenge I obviously said YES!"
A glimpse of Berber life – trekking in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains
"The heart of a walnut is a delicious, nutritious and surprisingly beauteous thing. Such are my musings on a trekking tour of the High Atlas Mountains where, in the midday heat, I value the shade of the walnut trees on the arid red sandstone slopes."
Wandern im Atlasgebirge - Freiseindesign
"In meinem Reisetagebuch berichte ich euch von 3 Tagen Wandern im Atlasgebirge von Marokko. Rund um den Jbel Toubkal, dem mit 4,167 höchsten Berg im Atlasgebirge finden sich ausgeschilderte Wanderwege und verwinkelte Pfade, bei denen man gut daran tut neben den vor Ort beliebten Maultieren vor allem auf einen erfahrenen Guide zu setzen. Zusätzlich zu der vielen Natur habe ich das von National Geographic Unique Lodges & Green Pearls® gelistete Hotel Kasbah Toubkal mit der zugehörigen Kasbah Lodge näher unter die Lupe genommen und die umliegenden Berberdörfer durchstreift."

Rock the Kasbah: Toubkal and Tagines - Laura Lisowski - May 2018
“When I survey my ever-growing list of mountains to climb, Mt Toubkal never would have made an appearance a few years back. It's a bit off the beaten path from some of the other big aspirational climbs around the world...but at 4,167 metres (13,671 ft), it is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco, North Africa ”
Kasbah du Toubkal, a Berber Hospitality Centre for Trekking the Atlas Mountains near Marrakech - Brogan Abroad - October 2018
“You’ll probably think I’m exaggerating when I say that this is probably the best place I’ve ever stayed in, but I’m not.”
Kasbah du Toubkal - Cindiddy for Elle Blog - May 2017
“Accommodations at the Kasbah were authentic and comfortable. The staff were very playful and friendly, and I loved interacting with them every day, asking questions and learning about life in the area.”
Hiking in the Atlas Mountains - Madhouse Heaven - March 2017
“Hiking in the Atlas Mountains is something I will never forget. There are few places in the world as remote as these mountains and the villages in them. You feel this the moment you leave Marrakesh to drive up the long gravel covered roads, up into the heart of Northern Morocco…”
10 amazing days in Magical Morocco - Tray Tables Away - December 2016
“Morocco has fascinated travellers for centuries and me for decades. As part of our 50th birthday celebrations in June in 2016 I was determined to finally tick this one off the bucketlist and how glad we are that we did! We spent 10 magical days in Morocco and relished every minute…”

“As we sit sipping sweet mint tea gazing out the sculpted slopes of the Imlil Valley, the call to prayer echoes up from the Berber villages below. I adjust the cushy pillows around me and lean out to take in the mountain panorama that surrounds the Kasbah du Toubkal…”
Escape to Kasbah du Toubkal in the High Atlas Mountains - MarocMama - December 2016
“My favorite place to go is the High Atlas Mountains. In the winter, when the weather is clear and cool they are the backdrop of Marrakech. While in the summer they hide behind the haze. A short car ride of thirty minutes brings them into sight…”
The Atlas and Kasbah du Toubkal, there where time stops - Every Steph - November 2016
“Taking a detour to the High Atlas and Kasbah du Toubkal means arriving to a place where warmth, smiles and a beautiful natural setting make it much more than a simple guest house; Kasbah du Toubkal is a place where time seems to stop…”
Kasbah du Toubkal, a Moroccan retreat that gives back - A Friend Afar - July 2016
“We recently returned from Morocco, and while we loved the excitement of Marrakech, we can’t get the tranquility of the Atlas Mountains off our mind. Less than 2 hours from Marrakech, the Imlil Valley is home to the most unique lodge we have ever had the opportunity to visit. We stayed only 2 nights at the Kasbah du Toubkal, but now we’re dreaming of going back for more…”
Marocco – Kasbah du Toubkal - Pieces of Ve - December 2015
“I’ve got a new goal in life: to discover all of the National Geographics’ Unique Lodges of the World. Therefore, it came in pretty handy that one of them is just about one hour away from Marrakech: Kasbah Du Toubkal. It is insanely beautifully located on a hilltop against the backdrop of the tallest mountain in North Africa, the Jbel Toubkal…”

Soul Searching at Kasbah Du Toubkal - It’s One World - April 2016
“Today I’m blinded by the beauty of our planet and the people that reside on it. Today I am at Kasbah du Toubkal in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, about 60 winding, and steep kilometers outside of Marrakech followed by a 15 minute walk up a rocky trail.”
Kasbah du Toubkal – Living the High Life - Jason Mayo- June 2014
“ ‘THIS is my sister’s house,’ young Mohamed told us. ‘Please come and join us for mint tea on the terrace.’ Our trek guide’s sibling disengaged herself from a gaggle of brightly garbed Berber women to slip into the kitchen out of the dazzling mountain light. The Atlas village of Aroumd is blessed with astonishing views of North Africa’s highest peak at 13,665ft, the mighty Jbel Toubkal. Go higher, to make the ascent, and the rarefied air literally takes your breath away. Quite a contrast to the muggy furnace that is Marrakech only 40 miles south…”
