Vallée du N'fis - Maroc
Morocco

Le N'Fiss prend sa source sur le flanc oriental du djbel Tichka et coule d'abord vers l'est. Au bas du col du tizi N'Test, il oblique vers le nord-est. La route R 203 qui descend du col en direction de Marrakech emprunte sa vallée, à travers le pays Goundafa ; les kasbahs des Goundafa dominent son cours en amont d'Ijoukak. Après Ouirgane et son barrage, tandis que la R 203 continue vers le nord-est, le N'Fiss se dirige vers le nord, traverse des gorges et alimente la retenue du barrage de Lalla Takerkoust. Au-delà du barrage, il débouche dans la plaine du Haouz et oblique légèrement, puis plus nettement, vers le nord-ouest. Après avoir été franchi par la route de Marrakech à Agadir et Essaouira (N 8), puis par l'autoroute A7, il rejoint le Tensift.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
