Morocco: Journey Through Morocco

9 April to 28 April 2019

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.

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.

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.

Zen Oriental Journeys appoints tour managers and leaders who have significant experience in management at senior education department levels and are experienced in professional tour leadership. Journey through Morocco will be led from Australia by Sue De Leo. Sue holds a Master’s Degree in Education, (Including Studies of Asia in Curriculum) and has been involved with in-country study tours to Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Japan. A specialist educator, Sue has written curriculum, lead workshops and presented lectures to Post - Graduate teachers. She has travelled extensively throughout Morocco in pursuit of her special interest in Zellige tiles, in Maghrebi art and architecture, and the influence of the hybrid aesthetic of Indo-Islamic art and architecture across the sub-continent and South East Asia. Sue will be accompanied by Ralph Ledergerber, a published award-winning photographer and Moroccan explorer. He loves to photograph the symbols of Amazigh art and craft that shape the Berber identity. Many of his shots are featured here, and he will be there to help you capture those great shots to remind you of your Journey Through Morocco.
