Bathed by the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, this colourful North African country is one of the gateways to the immense Sahara desert. Touring the desert on a camel or sleeping in a tent under the starry skies is an experience you’ll never forget.
The Jemaa el Fna Square in the city of Marrakech is the symbol of a country that is truly fascinating. Merchants, monkeys and snake charmers make it a frenetic place to visit, in contrast to the peacefulness of small fishing villages like Essaouira, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ksar de Ait Ben Haddou is a beautiful clay and adobe village where time seems to have stood still. The ideal place to savour a mint tea, the most popular drink in the country. If you’re looking for more places to discover in Morocco, we recommend the mazy streets of Fez and its 8th-century medina, or the blue city of Chaouen at the foot of the Rif Mountains. The Ouzoud Waterfalls in the Atlas Mountains are a paradise for climbers.
