When you travel in Morocco in the area around Agadir look out for the goats climbing in the trees. In the this area grows the tree named argan (Argania spinosa). This tree is unique to Morocco and produces a fruit like an olive, which is pressed for oil. The oil can be used for cooking and the body.
The goats like the argan too and it is not unusual to see the goats climbing in the branches to eat the leaves (picture 1). During all our trips in the area we saw goats acting this way, so you can't miss it. Also there are several places along the road where you can see the production of argan oil (picture 2, 3 & 4) and buy the products (picture 5).
