Marrakech

About the city

Gateway to the desert and the south, Marrakech is overwhelming like no other imperial city of Morocco. Its reddish-pink streets and alleys are full of sounds, sights, smells and life. The mid-summer heat is enough to prostrate most tourists. The best times to explore Marrakech are early morning, early evening, and winter, during winter temperatures are mild, but fall significantly at night, due to the cold air from the High Atlas. The Djemaa El-Fna, Assembly of the Dead, is anything but what its name suggests. A hot and crowded market by day, the Djemaa really gets rolling at sunset when the entertainers invade. This chaotic outdoor circus offers a microcosms of Morocco at its most exotic. The huge audience clusters in tight circles around the diverse cast of performers. Almost every tour of Marrakech begins at the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, with its magnificent minaret presiding over the Djemaa. The minaret, crowned by a lantern of three golden spheres, is the oldest and purest surviving example of the architecture of the Almohads. The city’s two most breathtaking monuments date from the 16th century. Feast your eyes and cool off at the ornate Ben Youssef Madrassa, the largest Qur’anic school in North Africa. Even more lavish are the dazzling Saadian Tombs, modelled upon the interior of the Alhambra in Granada. The view from the terrace at the Badi Palace, now in ruins, is majestic. Close by we find the 19th century Bahia Palace. It is an ornate and beautiful palace with restful fountained gardens. To escape from the relentless midday sun, wander in the lush Menara Gardens and lounge in the charming lakeside pavilion. Marrakech is noisy, busy, dusty and chaotic. It is a visual and sensory banquet of colour, diverse cultures, architecture and design. Marrakech delivers an exotic and exciting taste of Africa and the best part is that it is only a few hours away from Europe by plane.

Itinerary

Having picked you up from your hotel or riad, we make our way to Jemaa el-Fnaa Square to begin the tour. You can choose from two different routes:

Palm Grove Route

We pass through the modern city of Marrakech and the different neighbourhoods of the city to arrive at the palm groves, the area with more than 100,000 palm trees which offers some of the most luxurious holiday snaps in all Marrakech. We travel to the Palmeraie Palace Hotel, where you can stop for a mint tea, or whatever you like.

Garden Route

Leaving behind the old town for the old Bab Dokkala port we continue to the Majorelle Gardens, where you will have half an hour to enter and enjoy their fresh shade and stunning blues. Having visited these gardens we pass through the new town and Mohamed VI Avenue, making our way towards the Menara botanical gardens, passing through their interior in your carriage. 

At the end of both tours you will be brought back to your accommodation, or, if you prefer, to Jemaa el-Fnaa Square.

Camel Ride in the AGAFAY DESERT by Sunset Half day trip from Marrakech

day 3 - 16:30
Leave the bustling city of Marrakech behind and drive past lush vegetation, olive and orange orchards and through occasional villages. Off the tarmac and onto off road, the scenery is completely different - barren light brown plateaux, a true stone desert. The locals call it Agafay desert:  this might as well be the Sahara as the feeling of solitude. 

For all those who haven’t got sufficient time in Morocco for a Sahara desert tour, all the way south then the Agafay desert is the best thing to do instead. The Agafay desert is not a sand desert – but more sandstone and earthen plateau, traditional mud-built villages, dusty riverbeds are interspersed with spectacular sumptuous pasture and vegetation in springtime. There we can sample a tea with the locals and experience trekking by camel.
