About Morocco …
Travel to Morocco and you will uncover a country of sweeping deserts, epic mountain ranges, spice-laden souks, and a melting pot of Berber and Arabian cultures. Located in North Africa, Morocco has a coastline on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, and is crisscrossed by the Rif and Atlas Mountains.
Due to the years of French and Spanish colonial rule, the cities are a fascinating blend of cosmopolitan chic and ancient and colonial architecture. Many, such as Marrakesh, Essaouira and Fez are on UNESCO’s World Heritage list due to their cultural attractions.
Venture beyond the cities to find the mysterious Sahara Desert where you can experience the life of nomadic tribes by sleeping under the stars. Up in the Atlas Mountains uncover the daily life of Berber villages where the days revolve around hunting, crafting and taking care of the land.
There’s also the 2,000 kilometres of coastline with stunning beaches, laid-back port cities and rocky cliffs. Many beaches have become magnets for adventure activities such as surfing and watersports, while on others you can just hang out with the locals on serene beaches and find some zen.
And let’s not forget the diverse shopping that can be done in the endless souks and bazaars, followed by lazy evenings in charming restaurants indulging in delicious cuisine full of exotic spices such as coriander, saffron and cumin.
Explore the alleyways and side streets in the cities to find tagines – the earthenware cooking pots – and exotic spices such as saffron. Handwoven silk carpets are a good buy but go to a reputable shop. Be prepared to be there a while – sipping mint tea while the vibrantly coloured rugs are laid out in front of you.
