Family Morocco Discovery SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Navigate Marrakech’s sea of colourful pottery, donkey carts, perfumed gardens, acrobats and merchants – taking in all the sights, sounds and smells of this classic Moroccan city.
Rise to the heights of the Atlas Mountains, one of North Africa’s most breathtaking landscapes. Using the Berber village of Ifergane as a base, explore the captivating scenery which features palm-lined oases, gushing mountain streams and quaint local communities. Perhaps hop on a donkey and trot around one of the lush fields, or enjoy a sweet mint tea while watching the sunset over the mountains.
Journey through fruit and argan tree forests, where there is a chance of seeing goats climbing in the trees – a bizarre natural phenomenon that makes for a great photo opportunity. Reach the Atlantic Coast and enjoy a swim, a picnic lunch and an afternoon spent relaxing on the beach
Jump on a camel and explore the expansive dunes of Sida Kaouki from this unique and memorable vantage point. Continue on to Essaouira and see why the whitewashed houses, bright blue shutters and wood workshops of this charming town have inspired artists from Orsen Wells to Jimi Hendrix. Spend some free time browsing the plentiful markets and art galleries for that perfect souvenir, or witness a daily fresh seafood auction and feast on the catch of the day.
Return to Marrakech and delve deeper into the many faces of this electric city with a guided tour. Hone your bargaining skills in a souq, marvel at the many entertainers vying for attention in the medina and watch enthusiastic chefs whipping up fragrant local delicacies.
