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).

Ar rhe crossroad (follow the sign showing "Afensou 25 km"), turn right and then 1-2 km further, cross a village and at the exit turn right and down to pass the river. The tarmac route climbs and dominates a dam in progress. You will reach the village of Afensou (indicated). You can then see the house on the opposite hill, on the left. Once in front of a large yellow house followed by a red one, turn left on a small concrete path down to the river and cross the bridge of Afensou. The house is above you.

At Tamaloukte crossroad, you could alternatively continue straight right (50 km instead of 35 km in total) : 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 could also handle your transportation with one of our own cars or a local taxi from Taroudant or Agadir, even Marrakech.
