Itinerary

Welcome to Casablanca. Transfer to hotel

On your arrival in Casablanca airport (CMN) our representative will greet you and transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle in, relax after your flight, and have a first look around. Extra nights before the tour starts are available on request.

Tour Casablanca & travel to Rabat

Our day starts with a tour of Morocco's commercial hub - the port city of Casablanca which is flanked by the Atlantic Ocean. 
 
We'll visit its central market, the Royal Palace, the Habous District, the Mohamed V Square and its impressive central fountain, and the residential area of Anfa, which was an ancient toponym for Casablanca during the classical period. We'll also see the outside of the huge Hassan II Mosque, which sits right on the coastline looking out over the Atlantic. 
 
We'll have lunch before making our to Rabat, the administrative capital of Morocco. We'll explore the colourful blue painted streets of its old town, visiting its Royal Palace, the Oudaya Kasbah, Hassan Tower and the Mohammed V Mausoleum, which contains the tombs of the Moroccan king and his two sons, late King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah.

Exploring Meknes & Volubilis

We'll say goodbye to Rabat today as we make our way to the Berber town of Meknes, which once served at the capital of Morocco during the reign of Moulay Ismail, who transformed the town, building beautiful gateways, gardens and the largest ramparts in the country. These imposing city walls are interspersed with impressive gateways and are still in good condition today. 
 
From Meknes, we make our way to the ancient Roman city of Volubilis - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Volubilis is a spectacular site, home to some of the most impressive Roman ruins in North Africa. Its commonly considered to be the ancient capital of the Roman-Berber kingdom of Mauretania. We end the day with a short drive to the medieval city of Fez.

The ancient city of Fez

Today is all about exploring the ancient city of Fez, which dates back over 1200 years old. Blessed with numerous souks, mosques and spice scented streets, Fez is often referred to as the country's cultural capital. 
 
We'll explore this fascinating city, visiting the Moulay Idriss mausoleum, the Nejjarine fountain and the Bou Anania Medersa - one of Morocco's best examples of Marinid architecture. 
 
We'll also spend time confusing our senses in the cacophony of noise surrounding the heady alleyways of the medieval Medina, home to tanneries, carpet shops, streets full of craftspeople working and numerous local restaurants.

From Fez to Marrakech

We say goodbye to Fez this morning as we travel to Marrakech, Morocco's fourth largest city. We'll stop along the way to stretch our legs at the beautiful city of Beni Mellal, which sits at the foot of Jbel Tassemit, and next to the plains of Beni Amir. 
 
We arrive in Marrakech this evening and you have the rest of the evening free to relax in the hotel or head into the medina to start exploring this bustling city.

Exploring Marrakech

Our day in Marrakech starts with a visit to the impressive Koutoubia Mosque - which boasts the minaret which has become a symbol of this bustling city. Also on the agenda this morning are visits to the Menara Gardens and the Bahia Palace which hosts intricate and beautiful Arabic craftsmanship. In the afternoon we make our way to the colourful souks and handicraft quarters around the Djemaa El Fna Square where you can discover a world of mysterious bazaars set amidst the ancient city walls of the medina. An evening return to the square is well worth while as it comes alive with numerous street food stalls and groups of musicians playing.

Majorelle Garden, Free time in Marrakech

After breakfast this morning we visit the beautiful Majorelle Gardens. These gardens were painstakingly and lovingly created over 40 years by the French painter Jacques Majorelle. The mix of colourfully painted walls, water features and beautiful planting is a pleasure to explore and a surprising oasis in the middle of busy Marrakech. The iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner purchased the gardens in 1980 and saved them from ruin, also creating a museum in the grounds including their personal collection celebrating Berber culture. 
 
You then have the afternoon free to explore Marrakech independently, perhaps heading back into the Medina for some more sightseeing and souvenir shopping.

Across the Atlas Mountains to Ait Benhaddou & Ouarzazate

We leave Marrakech this morning in comfortable 4WD landcruiser style vehicles. Be ready for a beautiful scenic drive today as we cross the Atlas mountains, stopping on the way at Telouet - a Kasbah along the former route of the caravans from the Sahara over the mountains to Marrakech. 
 
We'll also explore the Kasbah of Glaoui and the Ksar of Ait Benhaddou - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - one of the best examples of the architecture of southern Morocco. This giant fortification, which is made up of six kasbahs and nearly fifty ksours (individual kasbahs), is a great example of pisé clay architecture. 
 
Once we reach Ouarzazate, we'll visit the Kasbah of Tiffeltout and Taouirt before we explore the famous Atlas film studios. Measured by acreage, these are some of the world's largest film studios with an impressive number of blockbuster movies and TV shows filmed here.

From Ouarzazate to the desert at Zagora

We start our day after breakfast by travelling to Taznakth, famous for its Berber carpets before we spend time in Agdz, a small town in mid-southeastern Morocco. From Agdz, we make our way to Zagora, a town in the Draa River Valley, flanked by the mountain Zagora from which the town's name is derived. 
 
Zagora boasts a host of palm groves and numerous Kasbahs, most of them falling in ruins, but still make for spectacular viewing. We'll also make our way to the Tamegroute Library and Koranic Learning Center as well as its adjacent old Kasbah. 
 
This evening you have the option of staying in the hotel in Zagora, or heading into the sand dunes at Tinfou to spend the night in a Berber desert camp. This is a fun night out under the stars, with opportunities to climb to the top of the sand dunes for sunset or sunrise. Camel rides are also available. Accommodation is in simple but comfortable Berber tents with beds and all bedding provided. If required, this option should be added and paid for at least 1 month before travel so your Zagora hotel room can be released without extra cost.

Travel back over the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech

After breakfast, we say our goodbyes to Zagora and travel down the same route until we reach Agdz, before travelling through the Anti Atlas. We'll stop at midday in Ouarzazate for lunch before we drive back to Marrakech, crossing the Tizi n'Tichka mountain pass, which shows off High Atlas mountains most beautiful sites. 
 
This is a long day's drive, but very scenic, so sit back and relax and take in the beauty of the natural landscapes as their colours change constantly along the drive until we reach Marrakech.
