When you arrive in the region, you should travel around to visit its many attractions and discover the wonders that it has to offer. Roads in the area have naturally followed the tourist attractions of Draa-Tafilalet, and efforts are made to match supply to meet demand. It should be noted that Draa-Tafilalet is primarily a rural area. Public transportation is adapting accordingly, particularly within and between rural areas. Furthermore, due to its geographical location, the roads are frequently twisting and difficult.
Road network between towns and communes
The main cities are linked by national roads:
A network of Provincial and Regional roadways has been added to the old one, linking the 125 urban and rural communities. It is often necessary that one follow rocky or even sandy routes to reach the most isolated places, which can be inaccessible in certain weather conditions.
The grand taxi remains the most common and efficient means of transport for traveling between the region’s communes, then come the mixed transport (passengers and goods in large vans and 4X4 vehicles of the Range Rover type).
Buses primarily come from various other Regions to serve the Region of Draa-Tafilalte. There are, however, several lines that connect the major cities, particularly on the Ouarzazate-Tinghir-Errachidia line and the Errachidia-Erfoud-Rissani’s.
This traffic comes to a stop and is organized in the Region’s nine bus stations: Errachidia, Ouarzazate, Tinghir, Zagora, Midelt, Er-rich, Erfoud, Goulmima, and Rissani; as well as the thirty or so places for grand taxis and mixed transport, which are distributed between towns, communes, and villages.
In terms of urban transport, the major cities have a network of small taxis that connect the districts and main places. Ouarzazate and Errachidia have the most developed system.
In total, there are more than 420 public transport vehicles, and around 100 bus stations.
Renting a car, with or without a driver, is undoubtedly the most efficient means of travel, and in some cases the only means to reach tourist attractions in the region. There are about 1500 tourist vehicles, ranging from little city cars to strong vehicles suitable for all roads.
Several tourist and rental agencies provide their transport services for free or as part of tourist packages (transfers, guided tours, treks, hikes, etc.). They are located in tourist areas and major cities.
