Morocco: in Boumalne de Dades, one of the undisputed birding hotspots on any Moroccan birding trip. This is an excellent base for birdwatching stony desert (along the Taglidt track) searching for emblematic species like Red-rumped Wheatear (Oenanthe moesta), Maghreb Wheatear (Oenanthe halophila) and Thick-billed Lark (Ramphocornis clotbey) among many others. Also ideal for visiting the Dades gorges.
This is a more economic option than the nearby Auberge le Soleil Bleu. Although perhaps not so comfortable for birders, this is aveteran establishment with friendly service. The rooms are a bit cramped, not very modern and make sure you ask for blankets in winter as the temperature can drop considerably in the absence of heating.
A double room with bathroom costs 300MAD (350MAD with breakfast) . Parking out front. WiFi only in reception and nearby rooms.
