Rabat – British self-made billionaire Richard Branson took to his blog once again to share his love of Morocco’s Atlas Mountains with his social media followers, during his stay at his breathtaking luxury resort, Kasbah Tamadot, which is just 55 kilometers away from the city of Marrakech.

In an article published on March 16, the businessman wrote on his personal blog that he has been spending a few days at Kasbah Tamadot, his retreat in Morocco. As Branson generally keeps active to boost his productivity, he spends most of his stay hiking and biking up the Atlas Mountains.

“I went for a few beautiful long hikes into the Atlas Mountains, taking in stunning views of the landscape and sharing the path with mountain goats,” said the wealthy businessman.

“Before the first climb, I joined some local children in a quick game of football, and found myself in goal. As you can see, the cheeky kid took no mercy!” he added.

The 67-year-old billionaire travels to Morocco as often as he can to visit his luxury resort, Kasbah Tamadot, which is located near Asni, a small town in the foothills of the High Atlas mountains near Marrakech. The area is decorated with natural mountainous views and surrounded by the peaks of the High Atlas.

Branson’s parents saw the Riad, which is now dubbed Kasbah Tamadot while ballooning over Morocco’s mountains. The Virgin Limited Edition owner bought the luxury hotel during “one of his famous ballooning expedition,” according to Virgin Limited Edition magazine.

“It really is one of the most wonderful places in the world here in Morocco, full of the most charming people and gorgeous countryside,” wrote the businessman in Virgin website.

A single night in the resort coasts around USD 717. Branson always invites his followers to visit the area in order to enjoy the mountainous view.

“It’s been interesting hearing more about Virgin Limited Edition’s new plans for Kasbah Tamadot. Very exciting and I’ll keep you posted. Right, I’m off for another hike.”
