Morocco

Exotic, ancient, mystical, colourful, challenging - Morocco is an intoxicating country that has long attracted writers, poets, artists and dreamers; convincing countless visitors to stay for good.

The narrow labyrinthine streets and walled medinas of ancient imperial cities; the overwhelming bustle of colourful markets; the undulating sand dunes and palm-fringed oases of the Sahara; dramatic peaks and remote kasbahs of the Atlas Mountains; the whitewashed, wind-battered ramparts of Essaouira; the mosques, the beaches, the camels, the Roman ruins, the piles of vibrant spices and Berber carpets - Morocco is a sensory overload in the best possible way.

Lose yourself in narrow backstreets; shop for gorgeous textiles and leatherwork in ancient souks; and explore mosques, museums and medinas in the imperial cities of Marrakech and Fes.

Marvel at the stunning mountain town of Chefchaouen with its distinctive blue-washed homes; and sample delicious seafood in the charming white-washed fishing town of Essaouira.

Cycle the High and Anti Atlas Mountains, traversing the exhilarating mountain passes and picturesque valleys of North Africa's highest mountains; and enjoy warm hospitality as you trek through remote Berber villages and climb to the summit of Morocco's highest peak, Mount Toubkal.

Explore the stark beauty of the Sahara Desert by camel and camp among the sand dunes in a Berber camp set beneath a thousand stars; and explore the legendary kasbahs, alleys and fortresses of Ait Benhaddou - Morocco's best-preserved earthen city, immortalised in iconic scenes from Indiana Jones and Game of Thrones.

Whichever itinerary you choose, you won't regret a visit to this endlessly fascinating and outrageously photogenic country.


 

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of every program that we offer in Morocco. When you book one of our adventures you are supporting sustainability in the region's natural environments, local communities and cultures.

Authentic experiences

Our Morocco program caters to every interest with activities including an exhilarating ascent of Mount Toubkal, exploring exotic souqs and historic cities, indulging in Moroccan cuisine and discovering the fascinating Berber culture. Our adventures are designed to show you the authentic side of Morocco, with even the most experience traveller finding inspiration within our range of itineraries.

Ultimate value

All of our Morocco tours feature comfortable accommodation, private vehicles, helpful crews and intriguing touring options. Additionally, we aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the trip cost such as most meals, transfers, entry and national park fees.

Experienced local guides

Our exceptional guides have a passion for the mountains and are enthusastic about sharing their extensive knowledge of Morocco's imperial history and cultural gems with you, ensuring your visit is the trip of a lifetime.


 

Minimal environmental impact

On our treks we avoid polluting water by camping away from wells and springs. Additionally guides encourage travellers to preserve water in sensitive places, which entails using wet wipes instead of washing in the desert. We do not make camp fires in areas with limited wood resources, and group litter is carried out from the camp. When cooking, kitchen staff use gas instead of fire wood. .

Animal welfare focus

We advocate for cruelty free animal encounters and adhere to our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct. Our guides, cooks and muleteers are trained to follow good practice in relation to the use of mules and camels, they have the power to add extra mules or camels when required.

Support of local communities

All of our suppliers are local businesses from the mule and camel handlers to vendors for fresh food products. We rotate through small local businesses to spread the revenue derived from tourism, and encourage travellers to purchase their goods from the same.


Riads

Riads are traditional houses usually with an internal courtyard, garden or water feature that reflect the Moroccan culture and feel like a soothing oasis after a day of exploring.

Hotels

In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star, twin share properties that are centrally located, comfortable and reliable.

Desert camps

These permanent safari camps in the desert use traditional Berber tents and decor, with the added ambience of being under a thousand stars.

Camping

We offer two styles of camping; fully supported and semi-participation. Both styles feature quality two person tents erected in scenic wilderness.

Homestays

Gain wonderful insight into the local culture during a homestay, a style of accommodation where a local family opens their home to you.
