Morocco from top to toe

From Fes and Marrakech, via private camps in mountains and desert to the south and the coast

We are interested in your High Atlas private camps, but we'd like to see more of Morocco. Marrakesh would be good - also the desert. And we're most interested in villages, markets, and meeting some of the people.”

The Coudercs

What we suggested and why

We suggested starting in Fes, the artisan capital of Morocco and less visited than Marrakech.  After this we recommended one of our private camping trips led by our experienced guide, combining time deep in the desert with a mule trek in remote valleys of the Atlas Mountains near Skoura.

After this we recommended heading towards Essaouira, spending a night en route in the ancient walled city of Taroudant.  At this point our guide left them and they spent two nights relaxing in the café society of Essaouira.

After the coast they continued to Marrakech for three nights to explore the culture and souks as well as a small riad in the Medina. At the end they spent two nights relaxing in a beautiful Kasbah at the foothills of Atlas Mountains (but within an easy drive to the airport at the end).
