Why you'll love this trip
  • After watching the sunset from the unique perspective of a camel’s back – spend an evening camping in the Sahara Desert, surrounded by windswept dunes under thousands of stars.
  • Explore the famous cities of Fes and Marrakech during guided tours where your local leader will give you a unique insight into the area – then, enjoy plenty of free time as a family to explore.
  • Adventure into the Atlas Mountains and stay with a traditional Amazigh family for an insight into authentic Moroccan life and culture – and a homecooked meal of local favourites.
  • The kids will love wandering the mystical alleyways of medieval Ait Benhaddou – can you spot which movies were filmed here?
  • Enjoy a pottery class from a local craftsman in Fes’ bustling medina and get your hands dirty as you make your own clay ceramic, all the while supporting the local artisans.
  • This trip directly supports Education for All, who provide an opportunity for girls in remote areas of Morocco to access education and prepare for successful careers. Donations help girls in the High Atlas Mountains through secondary school, bringing a generation of women out of the cycle of illiteracy, poverty and early marriage.

Is this trip right for you?
  • The weather in Morocco can be extreme. Summer temperatures can be uncomfortably hot, especially for those who aren't accustomed to the heat, so please consider what time of year you travel carefully. If you do travel in the warmer months, pack layers to cover you from the sun, bring the necessary sun protection and drink plenty of water.
  • On Day 6, the group will take a camel trek through the Sahara. You will set off from your camp on the edge of a desert and loop back. This is a great way to experience the desert, but if you'd prefer, it's possible to walk alongside the caravan on the sand for about an hour. The walk is not very demanding, so a basic level of fitness is fine.
  • There are some long travelling days on this trip as we cover a great deal of land. The road to the High Atlas Mountains is very windy, so please take this into consideration if you or your child suffers from motion sickness.

Important notes

1. Please note that these trips are for adults and children travelling together and there must be at least one child under 18 with you.
2. Minimum age for children on this trip is 5 years old. Please note that anyone aged under 18 must be accompanied by (and share accommodation with) a parent or legal guardian.
3. A discount of 10% applies on this trip to children 17 years and under at time of travel.
4. A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. The single supplement excludes Day 6 (Desert Camp) where you will be in shared accommodation and is subject to availability. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.
5. While Wi-Fi is available in our hotels it is important to note that wi-fi works best in the hotel foyer and will be very slow in the rooms. An easier option may be to purchase a SIM card in Morocco to stay connected.
6. Ramadan is an exciting time to travel through Morocco but there are also a few things to bear in mind. Meal times will be a lot later than you may be used to, in particular dinner. You will find restaurants will open at 7–7.30 pm in the evening for dinner. Which will mean your family may not be eating dinner until 8–8.30 pm. Likewise breakfast may not start until 7 am. As you travel through the countryside there will be limited small road side cafes to stop at. Your leader will pre-plan where to stop to ensure families have access to snacks and bathroom stops along the way. Morocco is a Muslim country therefore alcohol is not readily available, particularly during Ramadan.

Our family cannot recommend enough Intrepid family trips. We just had a wonderful adventure in Morocco. Our guide was brilliant, so knowledgeable and so caring. We were so lucky with our group of families, we cannot wait to meet them again. From Morocco Roman ruin to the wonderful medinas and our camel ride in the Sahara desert. We love every moment and our head is full of beautiful memories.
