Morocco tour, Imperial Cities


Description from the holiday company

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Morocco tour, Imperial Cities: the story of this holiday company

South African Chris travelled extensively as a school-leaver. He then got a job with an overland operator where he met Steve, truck driver, builder and tour leader. They clubbed together and set up their own business from Chrisís spare room, renting the corner of a farmerís barn to build a single truck. They were the first overland company to go from Nairobi to Cape Town and now have a streamlined UK office where all staff have previously worked, or travelled with us on the road. Their truck crews are the eyes and ears of the company and ensure they maintain mutually beneficial long-standing relationships with local suppliers.

Responsible tourism: Morocco tour, Imperial Cities

Environment

Waste
All our travellers are sent detailed pre-departure information upon booking their trip. This includes information on travelling responsibly and minimising their impact on the local environment. A section is devoted to minimising waste whilst travelling. Travellers are encouraged to remove unnecessary packaging from items before leaving home (recycling facilities are often more accessible in home countries) and to use either rechargeable batteries , wind-up or solar-powered electrical items-such as torches, cameras and mobile phones.
At the start of your trip your Tour Leader will aso remind the group of the importance of disposing of waste appropriately.

Suppliers
Our local Moroccan operator is a key player in the Ait Ouhem Association for Development, a local, community-led organisation in the Atlas Mountains. For every Moroccan tour booked we donate £5 per passenger to help the Association achieve its goals which includes reforestation in the mountains around the village to try and limit further soil erosion.

Community

Volunteering and Charity
We are proud to be working with the Ait Ouhem Association for Development, a local, community-led organisation in the Atlas Mountains. For every Moroccan tour booked we donate £5 per passenger to help the Association achieve its goals of:

1. Building a dispensary in the village to provide people with at least emergency first aid medical supplies. (The nearest hospital is 70 km away).

2. To provide houses with tap water.

3. Encouraging students of the village to continue their studies through buying necessary materials such as bags, books, books, pens.

4. To plant different trees in the mountains all around the village to stop or at least limit erosion.

5. Creating a textile cooperative for women so that they can earn a living that is otherwise not available to them.

Friends and Neighbours
We are very keen generally, that the income from our trips is dispersed as widely as possible within the local community and goes to small local service providers and not multi-nationals. All the accommodation and restaurants we use on our trip are small locally-run establishments and all our guides are local Moroccans.
