Morocco is one of the most diverse countries in Africa, with high mountains, sweeping desert, rugged coastline, and the winding alleyways of ancient Medina cities. Travellers come from every corner of the globe to witness the mystique of this amazing country, which is virtually unchanged in a thousand years.

Berbers & Touareg

Marrakech, famous for its walled Medina, with bustling market streets which spread like cobwebs from the main market square of Djemaa El Fna.

The square is alive with music, theatre, dancing, snake charmers and water sellers. In the evening 100 chefs arrive with grills in tow to feed the masses.

Outside of the Medina, Marrakech has become known for its luxury hotels and upmarket shops, restaurants and smart pavement cafés.

To the east of the city are the snow peaked Atlas mountains, to the south the Sahara desert. Both accessible from our discovery trips.

2½ hrs west of Marrakech is the Atlantic coast with beaches to meet  every taste. If you like surfing, sailing, horse riding or simply sipping from a long cool glass while watching the fishing boats bring home their catch, this is the place to be.
