Nkhila Lodge is located on a high plateau in the heart of Marrakech's Agafay Desert with sweeping views of the High Atlas mountains and Mount Toubkal. 


From Marrakech the quickest route to reach Nkhila Lodge is via Tameslohte to the P2013 (or, if driving from Marrakech Airport, take the R212 towards Agafay, then take a left turn at Kasbah Agafay to reach the P2013). Once you are on the P2013 drive south towards Lalla Takerkoust and exit this surfaced road, taking a RIGHT turn onto a dirt road which leads into the N’Fis River Valley. The junction is marked by a Nkhila Lodge signpost, and a large white signpost for ’Ste EXCAR’. Then follow the Nkhila Lodge signposts to the lodge for approx. 3 km. The route is accessible by small car in dry conditions. If it is raining the road may become muddy and a higher clearance vehicle such as a Dacia Duster or equivalent, or 4x4 is ideal. If you need help please call us and one of our team will assist.
