After breakfast the next morning, we will begin our exploration of Morocco’s capital. The first step is to visit Oudaias Kasbah, Rabat’s oldest building with spectacular views of the river “Bu Regrag” and the Atlantic Ocean. Hassan tower and tomb, Rabat’s second step, is an unfinished mosque begun by “Al Mohads” leader Yacoub Al-Mansour. Then we’ll travel to Chefchaouen, the blue city. In this lovely city, we’ll visit the main square, Utta El-Hammam, and marvel at the blue and white mansions. Overnight stay in a Riad or a hotel.
After breakfast, we’ll travel to Volubilis to visit the Roman city’s ruins. You will travel to Moulay Idriss, the holy city of all Moroccans and a center of pilgrimage for all Moroccans. After that, you’ll travel to Meknes to see the Medina of Meknes, which includes the exquisite Moulay Ismail Tomb, the granary, and the Sahrij Souani, which were used for irrigation and cultivation, as well as the Square of Lehdim and the Gate of Bab al Mansour. You’ll have the chance to wander through the souks and unwind at one of the Square’s cafés. We’ll carry on to Fez later. Bed and breakfast is included in the price of your stay at a traditional Riad.
After breakfast, we’ll travel to Ifrane, also known as “Moroccan Switzerland,” and Azrou, traveling through the Middle Atlas Mountains on the Tizi n t’lghamt pass. We will stop in many places to take pictures and have lunch in Midelt, following which we will continue our tour through Ziz valley, Errachidia, Erfoud, and finally Merzouga, the center of the Moroccan Sahara Desert, where you will rest before riding your camels and hiking into the deep desert. We’ll catch the sunset amid the sand dunes while camel trekking. After a great dinner in a Sahara Desert camp, we will spend the night in desert tents listening to Berber drumming music while gazing at the stars.
Your camel guide will wake you up early in the morning to watch the sunrise. After breakfast, you’ll return to the hotel on your camel. Here, we will take you on an exploratory excursion of the area, including a visit to the Khamlia settlement, which was founded by former Sudanese slaves… to experience their music and way of life. We could also want to pay a visit to the Berber nomad tents, where many Berber goods are cheaper than in the towns. You’ll spend the night at a hotel or a Riad here.
We’ll leave the hotel after breakfast and drive across the Dades Valley to Ouarzazate. The journey through Dades Valley is known as the route of a thousand kasbahs, and it offers several possibilities to capture some of the best photographs of your trip. We’ll stop in Kalaa Mgouna, also known as “the rose city,” to buy rosewater, which will keep your linen smelling fresh long after your trip is ended. Continue to Skoura and the Dades Valley, where you may see the Kasbah of Ameridil, a well-preserved kasbah in the region. After lunch, go hiking in the valley before continuing to Ouarzazate, dubbed “Hollywood of Africa” because of its topography and magnificent surroundings, which has attracted many world-class film makers. Overnight stays will be in a riad or a hotel.
Following breakfast in your riad, we’ll travel to Taroudant via Taznakht, stopping at Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, Morocco’s largest Kasbah. Built during the turn of the twentieth century. The Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, which is now a UNESCO world heritage site, was formerly one of the stops for caravans on their lengthy journey from Sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech. After that, we’ll drive to Taliouine, Morocco’s saffron capital, where you may see the Saffron Cooperative. If your visit falls during the saffron harvest, you will have the opportunity to meet Berber households who are gathering saffron in their fields.We will arrive at Taroudant in the afternoon, where you will be able to explore the ramparts and walk around the Medina’s narrow streets. Because it was founded by the Saadian dynasty, who used it as their capital until moving to Marrakech in the 16th century, Taroudant is often referred to as “the little Marrakech.”
We’ll leave the riad after breakfast and go to Essaouira via Agadir. Our first stop will be in Agadir, a resort city that has long been a popular tourist destination. You’ll continue to Essaouira after lunch and a short walk along the Promenade. The beachfront route offers stunning views and is known for its Argan plants. Herds of goats can be seen climbing the Argan trees in search of better food than what they can obtain on the ground. We arrive in Essaouira in the afternoon after several stops along the coast. In the Medina, spend the night in a riad.
Following breakfast at your accommodation in Essaouira, you will go on an exploratory tour of the city with a local guide. You’ll see the Skala Fortress, Thuya wood carved by artists, and hundreds of handicrafts as you travel through the medina’s alleyways. Today’s lunch will be served in a Moroccan style, with freshly purchased fish ‘prepared to order.’ You will have some free time in the afternoon to stroll around, go to the beach, and enjoy some alone time. Essaouira, commonly known as the “City of the Wind,” is a popular destination for surfers from all over the world. Essaouira has seen several civilizations – including the Portuguese occupation, which has left an indelible mark on the city’s architecture – yet it is still a little community steeped in history. It is also known as Morocco’s “Jewel of the Atlantic” due to its size and distinctive blue doors and washed walls. There is an annual “Gnawa music” festival, at which various musical groups from all over Africa and the world perform. It usually begins the second week of June. Overnight stay in a hotel or Riad.
You will have free time after breakfast in your riad before departing for Marrakech. You will have the opportunity to visit the women’s co-operative of Argan oil on our trip, as this is the country of Argan culture, where they extract the oil that is famed for its culinary, beauty, and medical benefits. You will continue your journey to Marrakech and check into your riad after several photo stops. After supper, you can take a stroll through the famous square of Jemaa El Fenna, where you will be entertained by magicians, storytellers, musicians, and snake charmers.
The next morning, you’ll go to the Menara garden, which features a pool surrounded by flowerbeds that serves as an irrigation system for the surrounding farmers. The Koutoubia mosque, Majorelle Gardens, Bahia Palace, and the Dar Si Said Palace museum of jewelry will all be included in the sightseeing tour.
