ACTIVITY RATING

The Kingdom of Morocco sits on the North East Atlantic coast of Africa. Its location on the continent, coupled with its resources, meant it received much attention from European powers over the centuries: Portugal, Spain and France have all played their part with the latter claiming Morocco as a protectorate state from 1912 – 1956 (Treaty of Fez). The Western (once Spanish) Sahara remains a highly contentious area in the deep south where the locals, mainly indigenous Sahrawians, reject Morocco’s sovereignty over this vast desert region. Many people think Morocco is mostly desert however there are fertile valleys, oasis gorges, and vast cedar forests and much of the country is mountainous - the Atlas Range averages over 3,500m and the highest peaks are snow-covered for much of the year.

Casablanca is the largest city with a population of over 3.5 million and the capital of Rabat has around 1.6 million inhabitants. Ninety-nine percent of the population are Sunni Muslims of Arab, Berber or Arab/Berber ancestry. Arabic is the official and most widely spoken language, French is used for administration and legal affairs including government business and there are several different Berber dialects including Tachelhit, Tamazight and Tarifit. Family is the centre of Moroccan life with marriage and children being life goals for most. The marriageable age is officially 18 for a woman and, increasingly, they pick or approve of their husband although in more traditional areas arranged marriages still take place. Morocco is famous for its arts and crafts – pottery, metalware, leather goods and rugs can be found in almost every souk and shopping always involves haggling over the price.

Our comprehensive tour of Morocco will introduce you to all the iconic places, along with a number of lesser-explored gems.
