Reviews of Parc national Tazzeka

Situated in north-eastern Morocco, near the new city of Taza, Tazekka National Park (literally "pyramid" in Berber) is one of ten nature parks in Morocco.

My suggestion:
Highly recommended for visiting as a family during a trip to Morocco.
My review

Tazekka is a beautiful mountainous nature park: I loved walking through it. The natural landscapes there are still untouched. The view is superb, what with the cork oaks, pines, abundance of plant species (heather, ferns, cherry trees, etc.) and waterfalls—including the largest, Ras el-Ma.

The surface area of the park is huge: nearly 12,000 hectares. You could easily spend a day there walking in the open air. The flora in the park means it is home to various animals, such as foxes, Barbary ground squirrels and jackals.

I was even lucky enough to see the star of the park from close up: the Barbary stag. There are many of them in the region and people come from all over to try to see them. The Barbary stag was reintroduced to the park in 1994 and has had a protected enclosure covering 500 hectares ever since.
