"Exotic Morocco" Morocco by JessieLang

Morocco Travel Guide: 10,264 reviews and 28,889 photos

Morocco is a fascinating country with an incredible variety of terrain, cultures, sights and sounds. From the Sahara to the High Atlas, from lush valleys and date palms to steep canyons, from modern cities to ancient medinas and Roman ruins, from palaces to nomad tents, Morocco has it all.

The tour began in Casablanca and Essaouira for some of us, and I’m very glad I did that part. After Essaouira, we went back to Casablanca to pick up the part of the group that didn’t come early, and headed for Rabat. Our route was roughly a circle: Casablanca—Rabat—Meknes—Fes—Midelt—Er-Rashidia—Erfoud—into the desert south of Rissani—Tinerhir—Quarzazat—Marrakech—Casablanca.

We had an incredible 2 nights in the Sahara at a private campsite, a cooking lesson (chicken tagine with lemons and olives) and a chance to visit with local people in their homes in various locations.
