Think of Morocco holidays and one immediately conjures up mystical, magical images of Marrakech; of snake charmers and monkey tamers, of traditional Berber music, tumblers and acrobats, of bartering in the labyrinth of the souks, of hessian sacks bursting with colourful spices and aromatic herbs, of smoke and enticing aromas emanating from the food stalls. Yet move beyond the red city walls and you'll encounter a deeper diversity that will enrich any Morocco holiday.
Head south to the majestic peaks of the High Atlas; the striking mountain pass of Tizi-n-Tichka leads to the famed and spectacular Kasbah towns of Telouet and Ait Ben Haddou, film set to Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. Continue east along the 'Road of the Thousand Kasbahs', through the stunning Todra and Dadès Gorges bathed in shadow and sunlight; or northeast towards the spiritual capital of Fès and imperial Meknès, city of minarets, from where the Roman ruins of Volubilis and the shrine town of Moulay Idriss are but a short distance away. All make for glamorous Morocco holidays.
From tented camps in the sand dunes near Merzouga to traditional riads hidden deep in city medinas, Red Savannah's choice of the finest bespoke and authentic accommodation will only serve to complement your Moroccan adventure holiday.
What our clients say:
"The Kasbah Bab Ourika was the perfect location to explore the national park and relax before the madness of Marrakech! Then to enter the tranquility of the Riad Farnatchi after exploring the maze of souks in the Medina was quite extraordinary..Wherever we went we were looked after with great care and consideration, our guides were knowledgeable and amusing and even our taxi drivers took care to avoid as many bumps and potholes as possible on our journeys through the mountains!" - L.D.
