Park your car at Auberge Cafe Restaurant Kasbah du Jardin further down the road past the main entrance and parking area to Ait Ben Haddou - plus the advantage of some palm trees in their parking area to park in some shade from the heat! - and make your way along the working fields and palmeraie to the river and then upstream which you get to see the local residents backyards behind the scenes and you miss the touts and hustlers trying to catch the tourists coming past their shops!
then enjoy some coffee and orange juice in a cool spot beside the auberges pool or even stay the night!
