Morocco is a country of immense and diverse physical beauty, with some of the most inspiring areas of pristine wilderness in Africa. It's also superb value and just a few short hours flight from the UK.
We specialise in treks into the High Atlas and southern deserts of Morocco. Accessing stunning wild areas over anything from 2 to 5 or more days our walks are supported by private camps, carried by mules or camels - find out more about this type of journey.
We use a couple of different styles of camp to support our treks - the desert light mobile camp lightweight enough to be packed up and carried by mules or camels over a period of anything from 2 to 5 or more days.
Or, if you like the idea of a little more pizazz the luxury desert camp with its proper beds and duvets within stunning embroidered tents. In either case expect stunning wild areas, great Moroccan food prepared fresh in camp and nights under the stars in remote spots far from any crowds.
We tailor make all of these journeys and can easily create an itinerary that gives you the chance to take in any of the other areas of Morocco, from Taroudant to Skoura, Fes to Marrakech and Essaouira on the coast - talk to us about planning a trip like this

For a country so close to Europe, it’s exhilarating to find such an intact culture and epic North African landscape with real contrast to anything European at almost every turn. Leave Marrakesh and head south and in less than an hour you’re climbing into the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains. This is magnificent trekking country where you can thread your way among small Berber villages, supported by mule trains, either on foot or on horseback, supported with a light tented camp.
Emerge through one of the Atlas passes and you enter a different world of reds, browns and ochres. Southern Morocco, with its iconic desert landscape, is liberating to explore by 4x4, taking in such places as the Draa Valley, the Anti Atlas and the open expanses of the desert. Spend a few days exploring this part of the country and you’ll rediscover the intoxicating sense of freedom that comes with travelling in such epic landscape. Yet, there’s more, as Morocco is a country of considerable culture, as you would expect from a land where Africa all but reaches Europe and the Mediterranean feeds into the Atlantic Ocean.
The medieval imperial city of Fes can lay claim to the oldest continually-operating university in the world, dating back to 859, with some of the practices in the surrounding streets and alleyways little changed even today. When you've done exploring, spend a few days relaxing in amongst the rich colours and charismatic streets of Essaouira or the old school café culture of Tangier or head into the Atlas for a few days in splendid isolation contemplating the peaks from the civilised retreat of a mountain-top Kasbah.
