Morocco 2017 – Sold Out
Lonely Planet description:
Morocco is a gateway to Africa, and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you’ll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.
Morocco is a storied country, that has over the centuries woven its ties to sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and the wider Middle East into whole cloth. Its mixed Arab and Berber population forms a strong national identity, but an increasingly youthful one, taking the best of its traditions and weaving the pattern anew – from the countryside to the city, from the call to prayer from the mosque to the beat of local hip hop. Morocco has a hundred faces and sounds, all ready to welcome the traveller looking for spice and adventure.
Mountains & Desert
From Saharan dunes to the peaks of the High Atlas, Morocco could have been tailor-made for travellers. Lyrical landscapes carpet this slice of North Africa like the richly coloured and patterned rugs you’ll lust after in local cooperatives. The mountains – not just the famous High Atlas but also the Rif and suntanned ranges leading to Saharan oases – offer simple, breathtaking pleasures: night skies glistening in the thin air, and views over a fluffy cloudbank from the Tizi n’Test pass. On lower ground, there are rugged coastlines, waterfalls and caves in forested hills, and the mighty desert.

Our base in Taroudant
La Maison Anglaise guest house is located within the ancient walled market town of Taroudant in the fertile Souss Valley between two mountain ranges: the lofty High Atlas and the parched Anti-Atlas bordering the Sahara. Away from the principal tourist trails, it is an ideal place to enjoy an attractive, genuinely Moroccan environment and to soak up the local culture and the sun. Even in winter, the day time temperatures are 20-26˚ C falling to only 8-12˚ at night
Lots to see in the area
A wide variety of contrasting environments are accessible from the town: mountains, valleys, urban, rural and coastal
