An Overview Of Widiane Chasse

The Moroccon shooting season runs from early October until the end of March so why not extend your season in style with a day or two of driven partridge deep in the Moroccan Atlas mountains?

We still have a selection of single and back to back days available at our 70,000 hectare partridge shoot based on the banks of Lake Bin El Ouidane in the Azilal province of Morocco Atlas Mountains.

The area is renowned for its steep and undulating topography and hosts a vast range of unusual flora and fauna that you will struggle to find anywhere else in the world, including the Barbary partridge. Slightly smaller but with a similar ‘get up and go’ attitude to the red leg partridge, the barbary is a fierce flyer making it an exciting quarry for any game shot especially when pushed off the Atlas Mountain cliffs.

Even if you’re only shooting one day, we encourage guests to spend a few nights with us. Our accommodation is the 5-star Widiane hotel and the ideal retreat for nature lovers.

A Day In The Field

Shootdays start at 08:30 with a buffet breakfast on the top floor of the hotel, overlooking the lake. At 09:30 we will load into 4x4s and head to the first drive where you will be introduced to your loaders and shown to your pegs.

Typically we shoot 4 or 5 drives with a break after the 3rd for a traditional Tagine, BBQ’d partridge, and a selection of local side dishes. The shooting is challenging, we make full use of mountain valleys and paths the partridge will either be flying fast downhill or towering off of the steep cliffs.

There are 25 separate drives on the estate so if you wish to shoot back-to-back days, regardless of the wind direction, you won’t shoot the same drives twice.

At the end of the day we head back to the hotel, usually around 16:00. You will have time to get changed, relax and use the hotel’s spa, pool, or other facilities before we meet for drinks, watch the sunset over the lake and have dinner.
