Goats on the tree trip from Agadir
Flying goats from Agadir and Taghazout
After a gentle drive of 30 minutes towards the Agadir - Marrakech Highway, we will stop to spot the famous goats climbing the argan tree, searching for the fresh nuts and fresh leaves.
Goats in Morocco only climb one particular type of tree, the Argan Tree, That can only be found in the middle of Morocco around the atlas mountains. The tree produces small yellowish flowers, which then produce a small fruit. The fruit’s seed is within a nut, which is further surrounded by soft flesh and a tough outer skin.
The fruit’s pulp is what attracts the goats to the argan trees, while the creatures will happily keep all hooves firmly on the ground and graze on low-hanging fruit, once they have gobbled the easy-to-reach produce they will scramble up into the tree in search of more.
