Khenifra is not part of the tourist trail of Morocco. It is however located in between important destinations, the most popular route between Fez and Marrakech will lead you through Khenifra. Being a long journey, breaking it in Khenifra is not a bad option: The landscapes out here are too nice to be lost in long night travels.
There are remains of a kasbah built by the command of Moulay Ismail here, and the souq on Sundays could be worth a stop.
