Why visit Morocco?

Morocco is situated in Northern Africa and is characterised by rugged mountains, large deserts and a lengthy coastline. The capital is Rabat. However, the largest city is Casablanca. With a population of more than 33 million people, it is distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences. Islam is the main religion and Arabic, Berber and French are widely spoken languages.

   

The combination of spectacularly different scenery and interesting mix of cultures makes Morocco a fascinating country to visit. The cuisine is a fusion of Moorish, European and Mediterranean. Spices are used extensively with bread and couscous both staples in the Moroccan diet. Be sure to try atai, a mint tea commonly consumed in Morocco.

Morocco is also a shopper's paradise, particularly the souks of Marrakesh. Small alleys of interesting and unique shops selling everything from slippers, tassels, rugs, leather bags, silver lamps,  pottery and more. It is possible to wander the souks in Morocco for days and still discover something new. 

  

Tourism is Morocco's second largest source of income with more than 11 million international tourists in 2017. 20% of those tourists are French with a large number of other European visitors also choosing to visit Morocco. 

    

We recommend you visit the Australian Government smart traveller website to inform yourself. Australian visitors do not need a visa to visit Morocco if staying under 3 months.

I am excited to announce that Morocco is the first country for our tours. Our two week tour and five day Marrakesh immersion are open for bookings. The two week tour starts in Cassablanca on the 5th November 2018 and ends in Marrakesh on the 19th November. We've included all of the amazing highlights Morocco has to offer - a night 'glamping' in the Sahara desert, spa treatment in Marrakesh, mountain villages, a cooking class and 6 UNESCO listed sites including the ancient Roman city developed in the 3rd century. Our tour ends in Marrakesh and we've allowed fours days for you to shop, chill and soak up the atmosphere of this amazing city. We have limited this tour to a maximum of ten people.
