Description of Morocco family holiday

Close to the UK, just a 2hr flight, but a world away in terms of adventure, Morocco offers families a holiday that’s out of the ordinary and packed full of excitingly authentic experiences to keep kids and adults completely and utterly enthralled.

Morocco’s cities provide a portal into the past with spice markets, ancient city walls, street performers, snake charmers and musicians making guided tours of Marrakech all the more memorable.

A short journey south reveals rural settings and Berber villages amongst the Mizane Valley, in the High Atlas, where your family will discover the delights of bread making and traditional handicrafts before enjoying down time around the pool at accommodation in Zaouit Ifergane.

Camel rides, beaches and swashbuckling tales of pirates past await in Essaouira where colourful fishing boats conjure a charming setting for seafood suppers on the harbour prior to undertaking the 3hr journey east for one last magical night in Marrakech.

Holiday type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

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.

Steps will be taken throughout your trip to further reduce our environmental impact while in country. Small measures can make a big difference to the overall picture and you will notice hopefully little actions as we go. For example, all travellers in the group will be encouraged to travel with refillable water bottles and purification tablets rather than purchasing water in plastic bottles to minimise waste and your group leader will also be on hand to advise on the responsible discarding of rubbish throughout the trip, recycling wherever possible.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Tasked with bringing this to life, will be your professional local group leader. All our ‘on trip’ recruitment comes from the local community, so team you are with will all be Moroccan from you leader, to your driver, to your camelteers and overnight hosts, and all are keen for you to experience the best of their country through its locations, people, culture and food! Our local team not only gives our travellers 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 training and job opportunities and supporting local businesses. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans.

Your group leader will also encourage and advise your group when it comes to respecting local sensibilities, a key indicator that often marks out responsible travellers from many of the ‘tourist herd’. Morocco is a very conservative country, particularly outside of the cities and modest clothing that covers shoulders and longer trousers as an alternative to shorts is appropriate dress. This itinerary visits rural regions such as the M’Goun Valley and Midelt as well as important religious sites including the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, factors which should be considered when packing for this trip!

The comfortable accommodations we stay in on this trip are all very traditional properties, reflective of Moroccan culture and style. Most are privately owned, from our Saharan desert camp where it’s not unusual to be entertained by our hosts’ traditional lively music, to the small gite we walk to the Atlas Mountains, to the hotels we use in the bigger cities. This means that we can ensure again that our visit is supporting local economies and not going to larger corporations.
