It’s best to reach Morocco by plane. Since Casablanca’s international airport is busy, you can even find one-way flights without layovers from North America to Morocco that keep you in the air for under 10 hours each way. If you have to take a connecting flight in Istanbul or Cairo, however, expect long layovers in the terminal that could extend your travel time by at least 16 hours. If you’re expecting a long time between flights, consider joining an airline club so you can rest in a VIP lounge.
Arabic is the official language of Morocco. Your tour guides will know this language and the local culture to guide you safely and efficiently around the country. Here are some things to expect in your tailor-made Moroccan safari.
Atlas Mountains- Hiking the Atlas Mountains will introduce you to the Berber culture by allowing you to visit some Berber villages along the trail. The views are spectacular as nearly every spot is picturesque. You’ll also be able to stop by the Azrou cedar forest where you can get up close and personal to wild monkeys. If you’re lucky, they’ll even come up to you for a picture!
Wildlife Reserves- Morocco has its own unique ecosystems that are protected in parks like the Souss Masa National Park where you can find beautiful birds and smaller animals. For example, you’ll have a good chance at seeing the rare Northern Bald Ibis, Algerian hedgehog, weasels, red foxes, and jackals.
