Marrakech

marrakech-kasbah-mosqueA trip to Morocco wouldn’t be complete without time spent in Marrakesh.

Marrakesh, one of the busiest cities in Africa, comprises an old fortified city packed with vendors and their stalls (the medina), bordered by the more modern modern neighbourhoods. The city is rich of mosques and palaces and you may often find the most exotic riads behind the tiniest of doors.

For those looking to make the 2 hour drive, we can reserve a rental car for your convenience.
Or alternatively you can go on an arranged trip, which we’d gladly help to organise.
We can prepare a lunch and / or dinner for if you get hungry and if you would like a guide to tell you all the secrets of Marrakesh, we can include this for you too.

Leave Taghazout after breakfast and arrive in Marrakesh mid morning.
Marrakesh has the largest traditional Berber market in Morocco
Take your time to explore the Souk and the Djemma el Fnaa, the huge square in Marrakesh’s Medina quarter. The Jemaa El Fnaa is one of the best-known squares in Africa and is the centre of city activity and trade. It has been described as a “world-famous square”, “a metaphorical urban icon, a bridge between the past and the present, the place where (spectacularized) Moroccan tradition encounters modernity.”It has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985.

After dinner, meet back up at the designated meeting point and take the time on the drive home to reflect on your enriching trip.
