The Magical Kingdom Of Morocco - 13 Days / 12 Nights

Experience the fascinating history, art and Islamic architecture of Rabat, Meknes, Fes and Marrakech, the fabled Imperial cities as well as discover the allure and pristine beauty of desert towns and villages on this panoramic, 12-day journey through Morocco. This is an ancient kingdom of mountains and deserts, of semi-nomadic Berber tribes and sophisticated city dwellers. It is a country defined by its markets, where bargaining for carpets, silver jewelry, fine leather, ceramics and inlaid wooden boxes is a respected tradition.

The High Atlas Mountains dramatically divide Morocco; its fertile farmland and most of its cities lying west towards the Atlantic while the great Sahara Desert spreads away to the east. And when it comes to scenery, think Lawrence of Arabia, filmed near Ouarzazate on the old caravan routes. Visit deep valleys filled with date palms and lush oases, see the sun rise over a sea of sand dunes at the edge of the desert, and picture yourself in a Kasbah (fortress) built in the days of the French Foreign Legion.

Writers have rhapsodized about Morocco, painters have tried to capture its essence but only through the experience of travelling in this breathtaking country can you come to understand and appreciate its uniqueness. Add to all this superb food, enchanting hotels and warm, hospitable people and what you get is Morocco at its very best!
