Journey Overview

Join us on our small group tour to Morocco! Few countries hold as much dreamy fascination as Morocco. Desert fortresses rise out of the sands of the Sahara. Sapphire oceans caress white sandy beaches. The purple peaks of the Atlas Mountains glisten with snow. Morocco is a land of endless wonder. Behind every city wall is an adventure in art, architecture and cuisine. The winding alleyways of the Medina give way to bustling souks, with tent after tent overflowing with brightly colored silks and baskets of traditional spices. The country is made up of four different areas: the Sahara Desert—full of Berber towns and oases, the Atlas and Rif Mountains—perfect for hikers, the plains—home to the imperial cities of Marrakesh and Fez, and the sandy coastlines of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean—graced by small beach towns and the cities of Rabat and Casablanca.

The group will head into the arid land that continues to capture the fascination of people around the globe. In a small town at the desert’s edge, we’ll climb aboard camels and embark on a journey deep into the epic dunes of the Sahara; it’ll take approximately an hour until we arrive at a Bedouin campsite for the night. We’ll join in on a traditional dance and welcome dinner, play the drums, sip calming mint tea, and lounge under the starry night. Accommodation: Jaimas Madu (Bedouin Tent) Day 9 We’ll rise before dawn to climb a dune just beyond the camp so we can watch the sunrise from a high vantage point. Marvel as the desert is flooded with glorious golden light, painting the sand pastel pinks and purples before transforming into a fiery orange. After we’ve had our fun lazing in the warm sand and filling our cameras’ memory cards, we’ll board the camels once again and head back to town. In the afternoon, we’ll travel through Tizi n’Tichka, a winding mountain pass, on our way to Aït Benhaddou, an ancient village that showcases Morocco’s earthen clay architecture. The village is often featured in Hollywood films, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and Son of God. We’ll delve deeper into the rich history of this captivating settlement before continuing onwards to Marrakesh. Accommodation: Aït Benhaddou Ksar Ighnda Day 10 After breakfast we’ll set off for Marrakesh. It’ll be another long ride (~5 hours), so plan accordingly.
