HIGHLIGHTS OF MOROCCO
Pampering fit for a sultan in Morocco’s traditional hammams: sink into petal scattered pools, inhale the wonderfully exotic fragrances, and brace yourself for invigorating hydrotherapy and salt scrubs.
Seriously glamorous camping at Richard Branson’s hideout, Kasbah Tamadot. This involves sleeping in an opulently draped Berber tent, sipping mint tea with stunning views over the Atlas Mountains, and enjoying some of the best stargazing in the world.
Weaving your way through the thronging souks of Marrakech amongst snake charmers, rainbow coloured spice markets, and effervescent street performers. As well as haggling for ornate lamps and bejewelled slippers, braver explorers can sample street food delicacies such as sheep’s brain.
Adopting the blissfully simple life of the locals, and immersing yourself in the Atlas Mountains. At the foot of North Africa's highest peak, with just rough tracks and narrow paths linking you with the outside world, this is a trekker’s paradise.
Hot air balloon rides over the Atlas Mountains. Aside from dramatic 4X4 rides, this is the best way to experience the spectacular mountains – washed in pinks and oranges, and scattered with aromatic flora and fauna.
The surf. Those looking to catch some waves should make their way to the beaches of Essaouira or Agadir, Morocco’s top surf spots.
