The culturally rich and geographically diverse gateway to Africa
From the bustling market places of Marrakesh to the cultural hub of Fez and the cosmopolitan city of Casablanca, there is plenty to explore and experience in the North African country of Morocco.
Morocco is a geographically diverse country with stunning mountain ranges, lush valleys, sweeping deserts, and extensive coastlines.
The High Atlas mountain range runs diagonally across Morocco for almost 1000km. From September through May, the mountains are snow-capped, whilst year-round the rivers flowing towards Marrakesh create a maze of fertile valleys.
The Draa Valley is one of the best-known with its palm tree-lined river forming oases just a short distance from the Sahara desert.
Morocco has two coastlines – one along the Mediterranean and one along the Atlantic – both stretching around 500km. Dotted along both coastlines are multiple cities, resorts and beaches.
