Reviews of Beni Slimane

The main attraction of Ben Slimane is its forest of cork oaks. An ideal place for nature lovers, away from the hubbub of the city.

My suggestion:
In the forest of Ziada, there is a perfect rock face for climbing. The forest is an ideal place for lovers of extreme sports.  
My review

Ben Slimane is slightly isolated which makes it little known to tourists. Yet it is located close to two major cities, both well known, Casablanca and Rabat. It is, therefore the perfect place to leave the city and find yourself in the country.

I guarantee you that a walk in the cork forest is synonymous with serenity and it will take several hours to discover. Indeed, the forest of Ben Slimane is immense! It consists of nearly 60,000 hectares of Cork Oak and Cypress trees. After spending four days in Rabat, let me say that I was happy to find myself surrounded by green space.

I did not dare to hunt, but I know that it is possible to go hunting in this nature reserve. It is, it seems, a very large and varied reserve to practice this sport.
