Responsible tourism: Morocco Caravan Adventure tour
Your small group of travellers will follow along the itinerary the recommendations of your local tour leader regarding environmental issues. There two main areas to be considered in this trip: water and impact on local environment.
Regarding water, this adventure is especially sensitive on this matter, as most of it happens in the desert and dry areas, where water is more valuable than gold. You will experience nomad life in the desert and how the communities living in oases and extremely dry areas manage and optimise the water and you will learn to appreciate an important resource that we take for granted.
With regards to our impact on the local environment, you will receive guidance from your tour leader in order to reduce this as much as possible. Usually there're a couple of sensitive places the you will pass by, Fint Oasis, the Jbel Zagora trek and the desert, in which you will need to pay especial attention and follow the guidelines of your tour leader.
The main contribution of this trip with our local communities happens in the remote Fint Oasis. You visit and exchange everyday life with this community, a remote family settlement far from the impact of tourism. Our small group contribution brings not only resources to the family but also an opportunity to bring a mutual exchange of admiration and stories between our travellers and our host families. If you wish to bring some little gifts for kids, this your opportunity to do so and we suggest our travellers this. Simple things like pencils or small toys can bring enormous joy to the families.
Along your adventure, you will taste delicious home-family-made food in all your stays, sourced from the regions that you will be visiting. Regarding accommodation, you will stay in family-owned small businesses or family houses like the one in Fint Oasis, the kasbah-home in Ouarzazate, your desert nomad camp and the local-owned Riad in Marrakech. These have all been selected for its contribution to the families behind.
