Top 9 activities to do while in the Moroccan desert

Morocco is a land of numerous wonders and breathtaking sights to behold. For centuries it has been attracting scientists, scholars, journalists, artists and all other sorts of people, for its inspiring natural landscapes and scenery. Traversed by the majestic Atlas Mountains and limited from north and west by the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, Morocco marries both golden beaches and thick green forests.

One other aspect of Morocco’s beauty that attracts millions of visitors from all over the world is the one of a kind Moroccan desert. The Moroccan desert is home to dunes of all sizes, from the smallest to some of the tallest in the world. Being in the Sahara desert is an unforgettable memory that we believe every adventurer and nature lover should experience at least once in their lifetime. Through this article, we will introduce you to some activities you can try out to make the best out of your Moroccan desert experience. We will be waiting for you!

Camel trekking

Now these activities are not listed in any particular order. However, we do believe that camel trekking is one of the best ways to fully enjoy the Moroccan desert experience. There’s just something about a camel ride in the middle of the endless desert dunes that just feels so magical and special, no matter if it’s your first or 100th time doing it. If you are only going to be in Morocco for a short period of time and won’t have enough time to try out the rest of these activities, then at least make sure can fit a camel trek somewhere in your schedule. You will absolutely not regret it.

Visiting nearby villages

There are many small villages you can visit while in the Moroccan desert, all with different and unique things to offer. For instance, a trip to Khamlia village will allow you to discover the origins of the famous Gnaoua music genre and meet its masters. If you’re a fan of geology, fossils and minerals, then make sure to stop by the village of Erfoud and visit the fossil museum. Another desert village you can visit is Rissani, where you can experience what a traditional weekly open market looks like in Morocco.

Quad bike rides

Besides camel trekking, quad bikes fall as a close second to the most interesting and fun means of transportation through the Moroccan desert. Quad bikes are going to be abundantly available for rent anywhere in the Sahara desert, and we recommend going for a ride at least once! They can be a ton of fun to ride with friends and family, while the desert winds run through your hair and face. Hold a quad bike race with other riders, or enjoy taking cool pictures and videos with your quad, the possibilities are endless!

Sandboarding

Sand surfing, or sandboarding, is exactly what it sounds like. If you’re a fan of skateboarding or snowboarding and you want to test your skills in a new environment, then sand surfing is the sport for you. This activity is especially interesting when you’re at the Moroccan desert because this is where you’ll find the largest sand dunes in the world, which makes it so much more unique!

Sand bathing

For centuries, desert locals have been using this ancestral practice to help relieve joints pain and rheumatism. Granted, this is an alternative medicine practice so you can’t go in expecting to get cured from your illness, but it definitely helps relieve pain and symptoms. How the “sand baths” work is that you will be buried from the neck-down in the hot Moroccan desert sand and remain there for a few minutes. Although the desert will be hot, it’s still very bearable and not uncomfortable at all. 

Enjoying a bonfire

One of the best parts about spending a night in a desert camp is gathering around the bonfire and sharing unforgettable memories. Every night that you will spend out in the Moroccan desert, you will enjoy local music, Berber drums and interesting stories around a bonfire lighting up the dark. Whether it be desert tunes or classical guitar, there will always be a nightly music session animated by talented locals. Entertainment, good food, a bonfire and fun times, what more are you looking for? 

Trying local cuisine

All this talk of wandering through the Moroccan desert is sure to make one hungry, right? You don’t need to worry about going hungry while enjoying your desert excursion, because there’s a ton of local cuisine for you to try out! One of the main specialties of the area is Medfouna, which is a meat filled bread that’s cooked in the sand, as organic as it gets. You might have heard about Medfouna before under the name “Berber pizza”, which is pretty accurate considering the round shape of it.

Observing wildlife

The Moroccan Sahara is home to a diverse wild life, which you might spot during your trip if you’re lucky enough! Barbary sheep, onyx, jackal and the sand fox are some of the most prominent examples of wildlife present in this desert. While spending the night in a desert camp, you can test your luck to see if you might a catch a photo of one of these species. What you can do is leave out a little bit of food after the lights and the fire are off, then wait to see what shows up to get a snack! Worst case scenario is no animals come, best case scenario you can get a really cute pictures of a little sand fox.

These were only some of the activities we suggest you try out during your next visit to the Moroccan desert. There are of course so many more things to do and experience in this breathtaking part of the world, so don’t hesitate to come and find out for yourself.

The private tours from Casablanca always visit Fez, which is something you’d expect given that Fez was the first capital of Morocco, back twelve centuries ago. The city has many buildings and monuments that take the visitors back to the middle ages. Walking in the old Medina with all the ancient buildings and architectures is like time travel. The same could be said about Meknes, which another imperial city with a very rich history. However, for people who want to take the history trip even back to the Roman period, there are some ruins of an old Roman city called Volubilis near Meknes and Fez. Volubilis still preserves the traces of an ancient history, where the Roman Empire was so powerful.

The region is also known for the cedar forests and the two wonderful towns Ifrane and Azerou. This area is very fun to visit during the winter when it’s snowing. The cedar forests are home to many forms of life; however, the most entertaining ones are the monkeys that you can find along the road.

Top 8 things to do in Casablanca, Morocco?

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.0.4″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.0.4″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.0.4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.4″]

Strangely, most of the tourists who visit Morocco do it without exploring Casablanca. Many of those tourists arrive in Morocco via the international airport of Casablanca, only to leave the city shortly afterward to visit all the tourist magnets like Fez, Marrakech, the Sahara Desert, and all the other places. That’s a shame because Casablanca has no shortage of spots that will leave an impact on you; Casablanca has one of the most admirable works of architecture and one of the richest cultures.

 It’s a huge city that has the richest history, culture and human diversity in Morocco. Along with a good geographical spot, that gives you access to many beautiful beaches, coasts, and very exciting excursions. So, there’s a lot to do in Casablanca.

But what are the best things you can do in Casablanca? This might be a crucial question, especially if your visit to Morocco is short.

An answer to that question could be found among our list of the top things you can do in Casablanca, Morocco.

1. Hassan II Mosque

The image of Hassan II Mosque has become synonymous with Casablanca. This mosque is a fantastic, huge work of beautiful architecture that king Hassan II built. The king wanted it to be very large; in fact, it’s the second-largest in the world with the tallest minaret. The mosque can take a huge number of worshipers. The king also wanted it to be fascinating, that is why it’s built on the tip of the shore, where you can stand on glass flour and see the ocean underneath you. The beauty of the place lies also in the architecture; the Islamic mystical geometry of the place is truly a wonder. Every corner has these trippy shapes and geometries all over.

Top Marrakech excursions that everyone must experience.

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.0.4″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.0.4″][et_pb_column _builder_version=”4.0.4″ type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.4″ hover_enabled=”0″]

Marrakech is probably the most famous Moroccan city, perhaps after Casablanca or maybe Tangier. But still it’s probably the most liked Moroccan city among the tourists. And it’s no wonder why. This city has probably all the characteristics that a wholesome city has. Plus, an international airport, that makes the flight there easy and direct for the people who are interested in visiting this vibrant city.

Marrakech has a lot to offer, from old medieval Islamic architecture in the old town (Medina), to the finest and most prestigious hotels. Also classy bars and nightclubs are the norm in this city, if you’re interested in the life of party.

However, a trip that visits only the city of Marrakech is probably considered incomplete if you didn’t go out of the city with some of the most exiting Marrakech excursions.

Marrakech excursions are full of surprises and novelties. You will get the impression of traveling to another country in another continent with different weather and lifestyle.

To give you an idea. Marrakech excursions can take the ambience of desert and oasis, mountains, valleys and snow, and even sea coast and old buildings.

That’s how the diversity of Marrakech excursions is manifested.

All those experiences that we mentioned, and more are all options in a Marrakech excursion. Stay with us to find out more about this subject.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.4″ hover_enabled=”0″]

Desert and Oasis.

Marrakech excursions  as we already said have a wide range of experience. One of those experiences is one that you can have in Palmeraie. This Marrakech excursion takes you to an oasis that is believed to have grown from palm tree seeds that Arab warriors dropped there centuries ago. Aside from the history of this place, the beauty is what we are concerned with, and let us tell you that it’s a good example of how an oasis has to be.

Another desert spot is the Majorelle Gardens. These gardens host the exhibitions of many exotic plants that are truly fascinating. And are also good photography material.

Marrakech excursions that take place in the Moroccan desert also take you to a fortified clay city called Ait Ben Haddo, which is listed by the UNESCO by the way. Those are some very old buildings.

But a visit to the desert will not be considered wholesome without camel rides. And don’t worry that’s the norm in Palemeraie. You will get to travel the desert on the back of a camel if you wanted to. And if you are more into engines, you also get to ride a quad bike.

Mountain, valley and waterfall.

The second type of Marrakech excursions is the mountain, valley and waterfall experience. As you might already know, Morocco is the home country of the highest mountain peak in North Africa and the Arab world. It’s the peak of Mount Toubkal, which belongs to the Atlas Mountains. This peak is very close to Marrakech. The thing that makes a big number of Marrakech excursions be directed towards the area of Mount Toubkal and other mountain related trips.

One interesting thing about this mountain is it’s accessibility. It’s not very hard to climb to the peak within two to three days at most. And also this place can provide the visitors with anything they need from food to refuge where they can rest.

There are actually some Marrakech excursions that take you to ski in the not-so-far ski resort Oukaïmeden. The mountain experience is a lot of fun if you like skiing or snowboarding.

There also many valleys such as Ourika and Ouzoud , where you can see the most beautiful landscapes that nature has to offer like breathtaking waterfalls where you get to take the coolest pictures of the natural landscapes. Fun fact, there are monkeys in there that consider those places their natural habitat. More than that,  there are many small villages along the way where they serve traditional foods such as the delicious Moroccan Tagines. And you get to have a close look at how people live there.

Essaouira.

Essaouira is an old Moroccan city that existed since antiquity, as many archeological findings have suggested. And that’s not the only thing about the city.
