Discovering
Morocco

Desert excursion

One of the best travel routes will lead you through the High Atlas Mountains to the beautiful sand dunes of the Sahara. Along the way you will cross a variety of breathtaking landscapes. From the quiet city, Ouarzazat, known for his film studios, you’ll travel through green valleys to the desert. The green palm oases are a remarkable piece of nature in this dry region where you can admire numerous Kasbahs. In the past, those magical mud castles were inhabited by the local Berber tribes. Today, you can also observe a huge number of storks nesting on the high towers. The south of Morocco has a lot to offer and should definitely not be missing in your travel program !
