"Fint! unknown oasis in the middle of 'nowhere'!!" Fint by angiebabe

Fint Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 19 photos

Had never heard of 'Fint' - despite being with the locals around the area and with Ouarzazate often as a base town for essentials from Telouet when i finally was in Ouarzazate looking after myself but had met some people i knew i then started hearing about how Fint was a nice place to drive to and visit! so i did.
10 km from Ouarzazate on the bypass road to Marrakech coming from Agdz.
Its 10 km of piste, some stones on the road are a bit big but then come sections of quite okay gravel and small stones and can increase your speed up again.

Nice scenery amongst barrenness

First appearances are that youre driving into the hills of back and beyond the civilisation of Ouarzazate but then come some nice shaped hills and land formations and then a dam with flowers and vegetation and also some birdlife with small stilted birds and a white crane.

Oasis coming into view

The land remains fairly flattish though gradual incline and then suddenly you see before you a valley down a 45 degree slope with some excellent rock formations and oasis - Fint ahead!

    I love it! Fint is one of those gems among the desert. Great and beautiful landscapes.

    I will for sure remember about this place next time I go to Ouarzazate. This looks like a true oasis, with no tourists!

    Those rock formations really are impressive. Interesting how similar the country is to some of central Australia, though the mountains here appear higher.

    Angie, I HAVE given up. My family wouldn't go anywhere with me. It's all eye-rolling about mosquitoes, malaria, museums...

    More beautiful photos. I'm a non-driver & the south of Morocco is the one place I've been where I really wanted to rent a car & see places like this.

    I won't eat cicada's again either, but at least they tasted a lot better than 'smelly tofu'. My wife likes it a lot, but it smells and tastes like crap. Literally! :-)

    Amazing rocks. And the oasis looks just like one would imagine...

    Cooll rock formations. Fint looks a little like the Dades Valley. Don't remember seeing this place on the map, lukcy you getting all these great recommendations.

    It looks surreal. Was it difficult to get to?
