Marrakech is undoubtedly the ‘jewel’ of Morocco and gave its name to the country.

Marrakech Holidays

Few cities can be as beautifully sited as Marrakech. The surrounding land is watered by abundant rivers and streams from the Atlas Mountains, which provide a spectacular backdrop as they rise some 12,000ft.

In the summer months, the heights are often lost behind a heat haze, but the winter visitor has the best of it, for then the peaks are covered in snow, always a beguiling sight in Africa.

Halfway between the Atlantic harbours and the Sahara, Marrakech has welcomed civilizations from the south, while Fez has played a similar role in the north. The Koutoubia minaret and the Saadi’s el Badi palace in Marrakech are symbolic of the power of this ancient capital. However, the name of Marrakech is associated today with its souks and the famous Djemaa el Fna square.

This vast triangular space evokes another Morocco; legendary, commercial and popular, where storytellers and sorcerers still mingle with snake charmers, charlatans, musicians and shepherds in quest of the fantastic. Picturesque Marrakech is still a place of dreams.

Nearly all visitors to Marrakech should combine their stay with a visit to the High Atlas, be it for a day trek or much longer.

To Reasons To Visit Marrakech

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your safari genuinely unique.

Best time to go visit Marrakech

The best time to visit Marrakech is when the temperatures have cooled during March and May where you will experience an average high of 25c. Morocco doesn’t see much rainfall during the year so that is one factor you don’t have to worry about.

The autumn is also a lovely time to visit Marrakech when the soaring summer temperatures have dropped a little making it a warm and pleasant environment to explore the city.

Marrakech (FAQS) NEED TO KNOW

Is Marrakech safe to visit?

Morocco and in turn, Marrakech, is a safe place to visit and you are unlikely to find yourself in any bother during your stay.
