Spring Flowers in the Atlas Mountains.

A wee question from my mum,

She has been reading various past topics about spring flowers in the Atlas Mountains.

We will be in Morocco at the very beginning of March for seven nights in Marrakech and two in Essaouira, I got her a new lens for Christmas with macro close up capabilities which she is desperate to properly try out.

She is hoping there will be various flowers in bloom this early on? we were planning on having a fairly relaxed day visiting the Tinmal Mosque and Ouirgane as it comes highly recommended on this forum - is there anywhere else we could include on the day trip or do you think these two places enough for a day?

Have found prices online for a day tour but they seem quite expensive at around £120 GBP for the day so I am assuming we could get a private taxi for less? (previous searches bring up anywhere between 600 and 1000 dirhams)

Thanks,

Suzie (and mum)

Fabulous flowers, you will be amazed at how green Morocco is at that time of the year. You'll see some great scenery and will be able to visit the ancient mosque at Tinmal.

Hi,

Between 600 and 1000 Dhs is an acceptable range of prices for a taxi and up to 1300 Dhs is not unreasonable for a private car and driver for a day out in the mountains. Your hotel or Riad will have reliable, insured contacts.
