Description of Morocco overland holiday, small group

Morocco holidays transport travellers back in time to a world where medinas and souks appear around well worn street labyrinths, and riding into the Sahara on the back of a camel puts a whole new perspective on life in North Africa.

This Morocco holiday encapsulates the contrasting scenery that has long made the country such a draw for artists, traders and Bedouins alike, with the scintillating beaches of Essaouira leading over Saharan dunes and into the High Atlas Mountains to stunning effect.

Comparing cities such as Casablanca, Chefchaouen and Fes is integral to this 18 day cultural tour with the fascinating clay-carved buildings, and former film sets, of Ait Benhaddou Kasbah providing a whole new prospect entirely.

This 18 day Morocco holiday takes you beyond the tourist trail and into the deserts and mountains north of Marrakech where hospitable nomadic encampments await whilst bustling trading posts offer a chance to haggle as you aim to uncover the mysteries of Morocco.

Excellent....I really enjoyed going round the northern part of Morocco under his guidance. Chefchaouen is a place I've wanted to go to for a long time so it was incredible to finally see it for real. And Moulay Idriss was a total surprise. Read full review

Camping in the desert was quite incredible. The stillness and quiet of the desert and the amazing amount of stars that filled the sky was truly spectacular Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

As company our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

Our project supported in Morocco is Project Handicapped Horizon. This is an organisation which is dedicated to the rehabilitation, health, empowerment and the social and economic success of people with disabilities. This project is dedicated to Orthopaedic and Prosthetic Medicine and the training of local artisans.


We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. From the colourful, chaotic medinas to the moody desert landscape, Morocco is a land filled with wonder and rich culture.

We take care to use local transport throughout, including sleeper trains and buses and stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses.

This trip includes a variation of quirky overnight stays. You will experience a guesthouse stay with a local family in the rural village of Moulay Idriss. A family run mountain home, (Gite) in the rocky outcrops of Aroumd, and a nomad style desert camp in the Sahara. These overnight stays will provide you with a glimpse into local life it also is a great way to put money back into the local community.

We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans. You will have the opportunity to join local friends in a simple cooking demonstration into Morocco’s most famous cuisine, couscous and tagine. They will take this opportunity to explain the secrets and subtleties of these traditional meals, you will then be able to sit back and enjoy the feast.

Recruitment of our ground team comes from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.
