Responsible tourism: Exciting family holiday in Morocco

Environment

One of the most popular activities in Morocco is a trek in the High Atlas. We provided detailed information for trekkers about how to minimise any negative impact on the environment during the course of the trek. As examples, we ask that all degradable refuse should be safely burnt and the remains buried. Other refuse (tins, bottles, etc) should be carried out of the area to an appropriate place for disposal.
We allow our local support teams to use fire for cooking and warmth but with the proviso that only dead wood is used.
We also ask trekkers to ensure that they do not use soaps or detergents when refreshing themselves in rivers and streams, as the water from these are used extensively by local villages.
Lastly, we ask that trekkers use toilet paper sparingly and to either burn (safely) or carry out all paper for disposal once out of the mountains.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.

Community

As a Muslim country it is important that travellers to Morocco are provided with the necessary information to behave appropriately when there. We provide advice about how to dress, asking women to cover their shoulders and knees in many places, although there are exceptions. Our guides will reinforce this message on arrival in Morocco. We also provide information about the holy month of Ramadan (when applicable), requesting that travellers be sensitive to the fact that people around them will be fasting during daylight hours.
Our tours use local guides in places of interest - this not only provides travellers with a fascinating insight into the country through which they are travelling, but also provides a vital source of income to local people.
When appropriate, we can also arrange a visit to a local school or village. This is something that families particularly enjoy as it provides children with a great insight into different ways of life (and can lead them to reflect on how lucky they are!).

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Train journey accross Morocco, visit to Volubilis Roman ruins, lunch with Berber family in Ouirgane.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Don't eat the salad. Do not bother with a guide in Fez; they are simply taking you on a heavily overpriced shopping trip. The Lonely Planet Guide is excellent, spot on in all instances for food, DIY tours and really good maps. Do your shopping in Marrakesh airport on the way home; they sell all the same stuff at the same prices. Take earplugs (5.30 muezzin every day). Expect a stomach upset, and rejoice if you don't get it.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Local people in Ouirgane (guide and his family) were paid direct by us, and I'm sure that money will have made a difference. Taking the train across the country was much better than a private taxi in many ways. Other than that, not really. Morrocco is heaving with tourists on the same well worn paths.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Unforgettable. The children will always remember it as a real adventure, and they will have the sights and sounds of Morocco in their minds for a long time.
