Is Morocco the right destination for you?

Salaam alaikoum! When we think of Morocco, it is the buzzing and colourful souks, filled with the scent of exotic spices that spring to mind. We conjure up images of magnificent palaces, lush gardens and white, sandy beaches that stretch far into the horizon. But there is more to Morocco; a depth that goes beyond its beauty and colour. There is its soul, a heart that beats not only in the bazaars but also across its lands, all there for you to di... Salaam alaikoum! When we think of Morocco, it is the buzzing and colourful souks, filled with the scent of exotic spices that spring to mind. We conjure up images of magnificent palaces, lush gardens and white, sandy beaches that stretch far into the horizon. But there is more to Morocco; a depth that goes beyond its beauty and colour. There is its soul, a heart that beats not only in the bazaars but also across its lands, all there for you to discover as you immerse yourself in the daily lives of its people. By meeting these people and by enjoying their hospitality during your stay, you will see Morocco and its inhabitants unveil the hidden treasures that lie at the core of their culture. From its four royal cities to the misty ramparts of Essaouira, from hiking and trekking across the countryside (be it in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains or on a camel’s back in the Sahara), wonders await you, no matter what your choice of holiday may be.

    An Array of beautiful ancient temples, incredible houses, and spectacular mosaics dot Volubilis.

Head over to the Triumphal Arch of Caracalla, constructed in 216 A.D. as a tribute to King Caracalla and his family.
  • Enjoy Ouarzazate

    Ouarzazate has a rich, colorful history. It was once a crossroad for European merchants.
