Tensift River

Tensift (Berber: Tansift) is a river in central Morocco. It takes spring in the eastern High Atlas, north of the Tizi-n-Tichka pass. It passes close to the city of Marrakesh and has its outlet into the Atlantic Ocean at the ancient fortress of Souira Qedima, around 40 km south from Safi. Its water discharge changes according to rainfall; it is one of the ten major rivers of Morocco, but frequently can be waded through even close to its outlet.
