Curving along the north western edge Northern Africa, the Kingdom of Morocco is only a short ferry trip from the shores of mainland Europe. However, with a coastline that stretches between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, rugged mountain ranges and expanses of white-sand desert, there can be no forgetting that you are exploring the crust of Africa.
A spectacular country, Morocco encompasses every extreme. Translucent, turquoise waters lap lazily on golden sands, the shoreline a mix of holiday resorts, sleepy seaside towns and deserted coves, while dramatic craggy peaks and deep-cut gorges flush with leafy valleys hide a tangle of walking routes, mountain villages and Roman ruins. Mount Toubkal, the second largest peak in Africa, attracts a crowd of hiking enthusiasts to the rocky cliffs of the Atlas Mountains, while for others, camel trekking across the Sahara is the biggest draw.
The cities in Morocco are as diverse and rich as its landscape. A colourful blend of Arab, Berber, European and African influences, they are a picturesque panorama of elegant minaret towers and domed mosques that are hugged by a labyrinth of winding lanes. The streets bubble with noisy chatter and waft with authentic aromas, the market stalls hung with ornate fabrics or displays of colourful spices.
