Located at the crossroads where Africa and Europe meet and where Christianity and Islam come face to face, Morocco transports us to another world and another time. On this journey we will explore the mysterious walled Imperial Cities as we lose ourselves in the intricate alleyways and exciting shops of the souks, while staying in a number of truly superior riads, the traditional boutique hotels of Morocco. We shall venture out to the very edge of the vast Sahara, with an overnight in a deluxe tented camp and riding 4x4s over the sand dunes. We shall follow the caravan routes of the Berbers and marvel at the physical beauty around us. For 2017 we have revised this itinerary, including a number of new and very different experiences. In Fez and Marrakech, we will stay in intimate Riads, located in the heart of each city. Each offers a truly unique experience. Space on this adventure is very limited - just 24 members. Book early.

Members should be prepared for a relatively primitive country - with crowded cities and busy souks (bazaars). In the countryside services and facilities can be basic, especially in remote areas. This is a fast paced itinerary with several one night stays. This journey includes long walks, rough surfaces, stairs  and in crowded bazaars. Members must be in good health and physically fit to fully appreciate this adventure. A Riad is a traditional Moroccan house or palace built around a central square that has been converted into a private boutique hotel, with atmosphere and great locations, but with limited restaurant facilities,  elevators and coach access.
