Then head to Chenini, one of the most beautiful Berber villages where you will meet your local guide “Zizou”! With a smile, a lot of love for his village and a passion for his job as a local guide, he will accompany you for a ride of around 1 hour to discover the village and its secret corners! Discover the granaries, the houses embedded in the walls of the mountain, the oil mill, the mosque and much more.
Around noon, a local meal would be a good reward after the walk you had done !
After the meal, it is time for digestion! Now, the route is about 6 km of walking in the middle of nature! Still with Zizou, cross the fields of olive trees, meet goats and sheep, maybe hamsters … Discover palm groves and water sources and breathe the fresh air.
