Morocco a country one must explore, a remarkable country. Witness the real world of colour, mystique and intrigue, a country bursting with culture and history. The wonderland of Africa, where culture lovers, adventurers, families and all travelers find a destination like no other on our planet.

1) The Imperial cities of Morocco:

Rabat, Morocco’s capital, while exhibiting modern styles, it houses many ancient attractions of historic interest such as the Kasbah of the Oudaias, ancient Medina, the famous Hassan Tower and the Mohamed V Mausoleum, all worthy of a visit.

Marrakech, the red city owing to its ancient city red walls housing the ancient Medina of many meandering alley ways where one finds numerous, wondrous souks and market places. Of interest are Badi Palace and Bahia Palace, the stunning Koutoubia Mosque, the Saadian Tombs and the bustling Djemaa el-Fna.

Fes will reveal a magnificent large and ancient tannery, the world’s oldest and still working university, a sensational Medina and other iconic attractions.

Meknes is a delightful university city. It boasts Morocco’s most beautiful and impressive Bab Mansour gate and arches full of mosaic work and the Mausoleum of Sultan Moulay Ismail.

2) Beaches of Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean Sea:

The west coast and northern shore line of Morocco are picturesque and somewhat beautifully rugged with pristine beaches. Both areas provide the ideal serene relaxation for a beach holiday which includes some water sports. International attractions are Tangier, Essaouira, Agadir and more at a domestic level, Asilah, El Jadida, Oualidia, Dakhla and El Jebha.

3) Wilderness and natural wonders of the mountain ranges:

The imposing Atlas Mountain range of Morocco, High Atlas, Middle Atlas and the Anti Atlas all represent the sublime natural wonder and beauty of Morocco. The highest giant peak, Jbel Toubkal (highest in north Africa and 2nd highest in Africa) 4,167 metres (13,671 ft) in the high Atlas range is easily located 60 Km from Marrakech and provides many outdoor activities all year round, such as hiking, horse riding and mountain biking, as do the other ranges, also with resplendent landscapes and beautiful Berber mountain villages. In the north the Rif range, close to Chefchaouen, provides much outdoor activity.

4) The Sahara Desert:

The world’s largest hot desert, the Sahara Desert, attracts many expeditions from many starting towns. There are choices of modes of desert travel e.g. camel train, foot trekking, horseback and 4×4 wheel drive across the undulating dunes. Camping is a popular desert experience and a magical night in a Berber desert camp should not be missed while in the Sahara region.

Sahara towns in Morocco are MerzougaErg Chebbi, Zagora, all are important entry towns to the Sahara desert, with Ouarzazate, on the way, known as the gateway to the desert.

Ouarzazate has the distinction of culture and film making. There is also a most impressive red earth Kasbah, UNESCO listed Ait Ben Haddou which has been featured in many international movies such as Game Of Thrones, Gladiator, Indiana Jones & Prince of Persia

Located close to Ouarzazate is ‘Noor’, the world’s largest solar power plant complex.

5) Mixed race cultural influences:

While Morocco is a blend of mainly Berber (native inhabitants of North Africa) and Arab cultures there are legacies from colonial times e.g. French, Portuguese, Spanish and the Jews. The only Jewish museum in the Muslim world is in Casablanca. This diversity is reflected through many aspects of Moroccan life, namely the languages, the clothing, the cuisine, and the culture.

Traveling from region to region in Morocco might seem more like traveling from country to country. For the diversity of culture from one city to the next is striking. However, in general, Morocco can be divided into two main cultures: Berber and Arab. And, each one has its own charm. Tourists visiting Morocco will definitely not get bored as with every step they take, they are bound to discover Morocco’s eclectic heritage.

6) Culture and Architecture of an ancient kingdom:

Throughout Morocco can be seen architectural evidence of the historic diversity of the land. From ancient majestic mosques, beautiful old Riads, Medinas and souks to very few old Christian churches. Ancient crafts such as mosaic tiling (Zellige), ornately carved woodwork and plaster work provide a marvelous vista in cities and countryside. Beautiful icons which should not be missed are the Hassan II mosque in Casablanca, the University of Al Qarawiyyin in Fes, the Grand mosque in Tangier and the Saadian tombs in Marrakech.

7) Shopping in Morocco’s wondrous souks:

Souks or traditional Moroccan markets are a traveler’s dream and a total draw-card for browsing the colourful stalls and searching out unusual Moroccan wares. Some towns operate their souks and markets on certain days, while in the major cities the Souks cum markets function each day. One will experience the most exotic aromas, take in the most vivid colours and be memorized by a multitude of goods such as brass ware, clothing, leather, jewelry, carpets, spices, musical instruments and a myriad of Moroccan souvenirs. Bargaining is a traditional part of Souk life. 

8) Delectable Moroccan cuisine to tantalise your apetite: 

Meats are a common component of traditional Moroccan cuisine. Lamb, beef and chicken with coastal areas providing fish, are staple foods in Morocco. A wonderful array of vegetables with meats are traditionally cooked in a Tajine. All meals are eaten with breads. There are many other mouthwatering Moroccan dishes to sample along with delicious pastries.

Other famous Moroccan foods to taste are Couscous, Moroccan chicken Bastilla, Rfissa, Harira, Mechoui, Bissara … etc.

9) Scope of accomodatiom: 

With travelers’ budgets in mind, Morocco offers a range of suitable accommodation, from luxury hotels, Riads to basic camp sites and charges are appropriate to the level of accommodation chosen. Also self-catering apartments are available for rental in larger towns and cities. In the large coastal cities such as Agadir and Tangier, large holiday resorts are available with amenities such as swimming pools, gymnasiums, restaurants and bars.

10) Berber society (Tolerant and Friendly people):

Morocco is one of the most tolerant and accepting of nations in the Islamic world. Morocco is as safe as any world country in which to travel. The Berber / Arab communities are relaxed, warm and friendly, speaking their own languages (Berber & Arabic) and French, with only a little English spoken. This is improving as English is now taught in senior school and is recognized as being the international language.
