Overview

Morocco is a gateway to Africa, and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you will find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality. Casablanca is approx 17 hrs 25 mins flight from India. 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. On lower ground, there are rugged coastlines, waterfalls and caves in forested hills and the mighty desert. So, what are you waiting for?

In the afternoon, visit the souks and the famous Jemaa Fna Place: The Souks: It is a riot of color, noise and activity, a wealthy storehouse of all the treasures of this vast and varied country. They are grouped in corporations. Thus you will find all the silver merchants in one corner, all the gold merchants in another, and rows of stalls selling exclusively leatherwork or copper goods or jewelry. The real fascination is to watch the craftsmen at work, gilding on leather, or inlaying with enamel the sheaths of ornate silver daggers, hammering out copper, embroidering silks or smoothing out the surface of a cedar wood table. The great square of Jemaa El Fna is the centre of medina life both day and night. By the day, it is a market and gathering place with stalls selling fresh orange juice, nuts and dried fruit lining half the massive square. From lunchtime onwards, there is a scattering of entertainers and sales people but it is at dusk that it really comes into its own. At 1700, a clatter of carts announces the arrival of the food stalls, which cook up every variety of vegetables, fish and meat. It is now that performers of every kind, including snake charmers, singers, musicians, story tellers and acrobats, fill the square. They are joined by the healers and fakirs with pots of herbs ready to dispense cures for any ailment imaginable. The crowds are mainly Moroccans; this is not a spectacle just for the tourists. It offers a glimpse of medina life that has changed little since medieval times. Visitors should take plenty of loose change to the Jemaa El Fna, as the performers do expect some material expression of appreciation in addition to applause. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.
