The Tizguit Valley is a river cut landform in the Middle Atlas mountain range, in the Meknès-Tafilalet Region of eastern Morocco.

Much of the valley is characterised by basaltic rock.[1] This valley is associated with forested areas that may provide habitat for the endangered Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus, a primate that prehistorically had a much wider range in northern Morocco.[2]
