From Taroudant, take the road starting from Bab El Khmis and passing by the Sunday souk, going north to a crossroad by the village of Tamaloukte (15 km from Taroudant).

Best is to turn right and then a few hundreds meters further turn left to reach a dam in progress.
In the working area, always choose to go down and to remain on the left. You have to pass a river (oued), sometimes dry sometimes easy to cross.
There are now approximately 10 km track, but feasible with an ordinary car (except after and during rain). Then tarmac road again till Afensou (small sign : Afensou auberge riad. The house is opposite to the bridge of Afensou and can be easily seen from the road.

At Tamaloukte crossroad, you can continue straight right (50 km instead of 35 km) : this is a tarmac road all the way along. Before the last village of Imoulas, you have to spot the road going down on the right to the village of Assaka, and continue till Afensou.

We can handle the transportation with one of our 4x4 or a local taxi from Taroudant or Agadir, even Marrakech.
