The first time I visited Rissaniy Risanni we stayed at the camping of Meski, 76 KM north of Rissani. The source of Meski is a wonderful natural spring with a pool where you can have a swim in a picturesque oasis. When we camped there in 1975, nobody was around.
But maybe the atmosphere have changed nowadays, because the pools have cemented and a characterless cafe and souvenirshops are built, I red in a travelguide.
After Meski the Ziz River and the valley of the Tafilalt appear. This valley cuts through the barren hills. Here lived an isolated Arab community, of the Alouite dynasty in fortresses. At the end of the Tafilalt area lies Rissani.
Unique Qualities: Scenic oasis, source and pool.
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: 17 KM south-east of Er-Rachidia.
Price: less than US$20
Kasbah Ennasra, entrance
The kasbah Ennasra is a newly built kasbah in traditional style. In the innercourt there is a swimmingpool, a berber tent and a snackbar. The kasbah has also a restaurant and a tea room. The rooms have the entrance at a lovely inner garden and every room has its own patio.
The whole place is nicily decorated with all kind of local and traditional objects.
At arrival in the hotel we had a lovely welcome tea with snacks. It was winter, but in the sun the temperature was high enough to sit outdoors, so we enjoyed the tea at in the innercourt. In the evening it was too cold to sit outside, so we moved to the tearoom with heating.
In the lobby is a pc with free internet acces. The hotel organises 4WD excursions and cameltrips into the desert. We booked a 4WD trip in the hotel and visited the black desert before heading to the Erg Chebbi dunes.
Address: BP 167, Ksar Lbtarni, Rissani
Directions: The Ennasra Kasbah is just north of the junction of the N13 from Erfoud and the N12 from Zagora, a few km's north of Rissani.
