Itinerary: Morocco - Journey Through Morocco

9 April to 28 April 2019

We’ll take you along roads less travelled, to desert villages of fortified mud kasbah’s, across soaring sand dunes, to lush oases and World Heritage towns with their ever-enchanting labyrinths of bazaars, souks and cool courtyards wafted by the smells of aromatic teas and colourful tagines, sun-drenched workshops overflowing with leather-ware, carpets and jewellery. Traverse the stunning Atlas Mountains, follow the footsteps of Roman Legions and Muslim scholars, and be transported to the days when the Berber nomads traversed Saharan deserts plying the trade routes since the beginning of time. You’ll explore great cities and World Heritage sites and encounter remote villages and the unparalleled scenic splendour of wild landscapes.

Join us on this spectacular Journey of intoxicating beauty to the vibrant heart and soul of Morocco, where African and Arabic cultures are accented with the glamour of France, where the mediaeval walls of its ancient cities surround spice-laden souks, bustling medinas, leather workshops and crafts of every kind.

The handcrafted itinerary highlights the most significant historical and cultural aspects of Morocco, from ancient monuments, richly decorated palaces, and glorious mosques to create a fascinating mixture of art, food, music and above all, encounters with the warm peoples of this unforgettable destination.

On this Journey you will:

• wander enchanting labyrinthine bazaars and souks in the old medinas
• witness an incredible sun rise over the endless dunes of the Sahara Desert
• fall in love with Chefchaouen - Morocco's magical blue city
• see the magnificent Medina of Fes el-Bali in the medieval capital of Fez
• travel back to a slower time of aromatic mint tea in cool courtyards and sun-drenched bazaars overflowing with handmade jewellery and colourful tagines
• explore the stunning Jardin Marjorelle, gifted to Marrakesh by Yves Saint Laurent
• feel the buzz of Marrakesh's Jemaa-el-Fna Square walking through the stalls, snake-charmers and other entertainers on your way to dinner
• marvel at Berber villages and nomadic life, lush oases, fortified kasbahs, the breathtaking High Atlas Mountains

Day 1: 9 April 2019, Depart Australia with QATAR or Emirates Airlines

Day 2: 10 April 2019, Arrive in Casablanca, B

Our Journey Through Morocco begins on arrival at legendary Casablanca, when we are met by our guide and begin an orientation tour of the fabled Barbary Coast city founded in the 12th century. This former French colonial post is the most cosmopolitan city in Morocco and our introductory tour includes the popular La Corniche beachside precinct, the Hassan II Mosque which is dramatically situated on a promontory jutting in to the Atlantic, and the Plaza of Mohammed V.

Day 3: 11 April 2019, Casablanca - Rabat - Asilah - Chefchaouen, B

Heading north along the Atlantic coast, drive to Rabat and enjoy a tour of the capital of Morocco. You will walk around the entrance to the Royal Palace, then continue to the Mohammed V Mausoleum. Here lie the tombs of the nation's (and the current king's) grandfather, King Mohammed V, and his two sons King Hassan II and Prince Moulay Abdellah. Mosaics rise from the marble floor to a ceiling of gold leaf and hand-carved cedar wood, while the three ground-floor tombs are carved from white onyx. Next to the Mausoleum is Le Tour Hassan (the Hassan Tower), which is the towering minaret of the Hassan Mosque, which began construction in 1195.

We stop at Asilah for an exploration of this fascinating town; a bright and fresh destination that provides a taste of old Spain mixed with Moroccan traditions. The streets are adorned with inspiring art work and you’ll be charmed with the souk as it’s market day, and you can wander the peaceful and enchanting stalls.

Day 4: 12 April 2019, Chefchaouen exploration, B/D

With its distinctive pale blue and whitewashed buildings and winding alleyways, Chefchaouen is a charming place with strong Andalusian connections. It was here to which many Jews and Moors fled during the Spanish Inquisition. Highlights of our day include the Outa-el-Hammam square, the cobblestone medina and the Tarik-Ben-Ziad mosque whose octagonal minaret is inspired by that of the Torre de Oro in Seville. In the heart of the Medina is the Plaza Utta el-Hammam, a perfect place to stop for Lunch. Enjoy the remainder of the day wandering on your own through the medina, shopping for handicrafts or relaxing in one of the many outdoor cafés. Chaouen, as Moroccans often call it, offers many handicrafts such as wool garments and woven blankets that are not available elsewhere. The goat cheese native to the area is also popular.

Tonight, we will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner by way of welcome to this fascinating country.

Day 5: 13 April 2019, Chefchaouen - Moulay Driss - Fes, B

Descending this morning through the Rif Mountains we arrive in the ancient town of Moulay Idriss, to see where Morocco's first Arab conquerors settled, in this small, sacred town. Then off to the World Heritage designated 17th century Meknes. Explore the sights including the famous colossal gate of Bab el Mansour, the main entrance to the second Alaouite sultan-Moulay Ismail’s city, the massive Heri es-Souani granaries and the Agdal Basin water reservoir.

Day 6: 14 April 2019, Fes exploration, B

Fes, the cultural capital, is one of the most complete medieval Islamic cities in the world and one of the great trading capitals from Trans-Saharan camel caravan times. Passing through the gates and walls into the alleyways beyond transports us back in time. The streets remain as they were in the 8th century, with high walls that protect the courtyards inside from the heat of the midday sun. Enormous theosophical colleges, beautiful mosques and fascinating souks spilling their goods onto the pavement are all part of the scene. Visit the Place an-Nejjarine, where an ancient caravanserai overlooks a fountain; wander outside the great Qayrawan mosque, passing 14th century merchant's shops; or head to the Souk Ain Allou tanneries - where leather is stained in vats of strikingly coloured dyes. After a break for lunch we continue wandering the twisting streets and alleyways passing donkeys piled high with goods, historic khans, madrassas and stalls loaded with fruits of every kind. In the souk al- Attarine in between the squawk of chickens, the scent of exotic spices fills the air, then to souk au Henne (henna and kohl), Fes el Jdid, the exterior of Dar el Makhzen (Royal Palace) and the enormous Merenid gate of Bab Dekakene. After dinner, why not try the hammam, or traditional bathhouse, which steams away the stresses of life?

Day 7: 15 April 2019, Fes - Bhalil Village (Excursion), B

After a leisurely breakfast we depart for Sefrou-Bhalil, a charming village splashed with pastel hues of pink, yellow, and blue, and is unique for its troglodyte houses. Dating back to the 4th century, these cave dwellings were built into the picturesque mountainside to avoid the heat of summer and the cold of winter.

With a large single living space used for cooking, sleeping as well as for daily living they provide a unique glimpse of a very different Morocco. The village is also well known for producing djellaba buttons, and seeing groups of women together chatting while they weave eclectically coloured string is a common sight. Surrounded by olive orchards, the caves also provide a view of Sefrou from the opposite side of the cascades. Return to Fes at lunchtime.

The remainder of day is at leisure to explore and mingle with the friendly locals as they go about their daily lives. Wander the alleyways, cross the stone bridges and climb to the top of the town and take in the view of the beautiful valley below from the late 16th century Borj Sud fortress. Why not visit the Dar Batha Museum housed in a 19th century Moorish palace and set around its traditional courtyard garden?

Day 8: 16 April 2019, Fes - Midelt - Erfoud, B/D

A change of scenery today as you leave the crowded streets of old Fes behind and set out across the mountains of the Middle Atlas. We start to discover some of Morocco's beautiful mountainous landscapes today as we leave Fes and follow ancient caravan routes up into the hills. Along the way we'll stop at Ifran, known as the ''Switzerland of Morocco'' and a huge contrast to some of the other more Arabic feeling cities you'll see in Morocco. The French built Ifran in the 1930s, with the intention of recreating an alpine style resort, and you'll see beautiful parks with lakes, flower beds, and red roofed houses throughout what was named the second cleanest city in the world in 2013. The wilderness you cross is incredibly diverse and can vary from rocky, sun-baked plains, to cedar- clad mountains and deep canyons. We start descending into the picturesque Ziz Valley oasis. The scenery will change yet again as we start seeing the first sand dunes from the road. Here we reach our hotel and watch the sun setting over the vast expanse of rolling desert dunes on the edge of the Sahara.

Day 9: 17 April 2019, Erfoud - Erg Chebbi - Merzouga, B/D

We leave Erfoud after a leisurely morning (enjoy the pool??) and visit the souk and Rissani, (the birthplace of the Alaouite Dynasty - Morocco's current royal family), before driving in 4WD vehicles through the famous Erg Chebbi sand desert to Merzouga. Later we transfer to camels and take a camel ride through the sand dunes. The sturdy camel has been a mainstay of desert life over the centuries, being used to ship the precious cargoes from sub-Saharan Africa to the trading ports of the Mediterranean coast. You can ride your camel or walk alongside as you slip into the pace of the caravan led by Berber guides and marvel at the awesome spectacle of the desert and the solitude and silence that comes with it. The great ‘sand sea’ of Merzouga, a beautiful area of fine, apricot-coloured sand stretches as far as the eye can see. You can enjoy some spectacular views from our hotel over the sand dunes as the sun sinks below the horizon. Our hotel here has become one of the most prestigious establishments in the Desert. Its majestic structure and its privileged location are in keeping with the essence of traditional construction, having been designed with natural materials, warm colours, and walls covered with “tadalaket” a typical Moroccan lime plaster coating. OR… stay in the dunes.

Day 10: 18 April 2019, Merzouga - Alnif - Tazarine - Zagora, B

The best time to experience its beauty is at dawn when sunrise over this incredible landscape is breathtaking. After breakfast our Journey takes you to the old desert camel caravan oasis town of Zagora by way of Alnif in the Anti-Atlas Mountains. Much of these Mountains are built of Paleozoic rocks, dating back to between 245 and 570 million years. When these rocks were deposited, a shallow sea covered the region. Trilobites scuttled along the seafloor, and huge schools of squid-like nautiloids with cone-shaped shells, swam above. When they died, their shells were preserved in the limy mud of the Maidir basin, awaiting resurrection as the polished curios, coffee tables and ornamental sinks that now cram Alnif’s roadside shops. At Tazarine we may visit (time permitting) the ancient rock carvings. Zagora is famously claimed to be a 52-day journey by camel caravan to Timbuktu.

Day 13: 21 April 2019, Ouarzazate - Ait Benhaddou - Marrakech, B

After breakfast, leave Ouarzazate crossing the High Atlas Mountains via the magnificent Tiz In Tichka pass (2262m) to the UNESCO-World Heritage listed city of Aït Benhaddou. With its dramatic walls of red earth, slit windows and crumbling towers, it is a magnificent example of a traditional stronghold. Home to some of Morocco’s best-preserved Kasbahs, once occupied a prominent position on the trans-Saharan trade route and is now one of the country’s most famous attractions. Sculpted from traditional mud bricks, the town is a striking sight, perched on the edge of the High Atlas Mountains and fortified by walls of dark red pisé. Chosen as a location for Hollywood films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Kundun, Jewel of the Nile, Jesus of Nazareth, Gladiator, and more recently for HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones. Have plenty of space and battery power in your cameras today!

On arrival in Marrakech we stay for 3 nights in the heart of the old medina in one of the most atmospheric of Marrakech riads. Free time this evening to find local delicacies at one of the cafés on the Djemaa el Fna, and watch Marrakech life go by.

Essaouira is a beach town, albeit a culturally dense one. In the way of high profile attractions, it’s got a brilliant medina––named a world heritage site by UNESCO–ramparts, a Jewish cemetery, a Kasbah, a citadel, and a bust of Orson Welles. Afternoon free for individual activities. The real sites in Essaouira are the beaches, the port, and the market. Rather than shopping, some people choose to windsurf on the ocean, while others opt for a camel ride along the beach. In either case, make sure not to miss the maze of narrow lanes with tiny cafes looking out onto small squares encircled by Portuguese, Berber and French battlements. Two fortresses look out over the ocean, and on an offshore island stands another, even larger castle. As befits a seaport, the pace of life is more relaxed here, and the whitewashed streets lend a truly Mediterranean air to the city, Discover the art galleries, cooperatives and workshops, of which there are plenty throughout the city.

Day 17: 25 April 2019, Essaouira - Safi - El Jadida - Casablanca, B/D

Morning at leisure to stroll around the lively old port that is full of colour and interest. The harbour was once the lair of pirates who sailed out to plunder richly laden ships that passed along the coast; after all, this was the main trade route round the Cape of Good Hope to Western Europe. The cosmopolitan mixture of different influences makes it a wonderful place to explore - and it is full of visual surprises. Then transfer to Casablanca via Safi which is renowned for its outstanding pottery traditions and El Jadida. Tonight, we farewell Morocco at a ‘special dinner’ to celebrate our Journey Though Morocco. Our typically Moroccan dinner is set in a décor of stucco, woodwork and mosaics, accompanied by the sound of the gimbri lute and the tbal drum playing for dancers.
