When talking about our planned trip in Morocco, we heard over and over: “Morocco? Aren’t you afraid?” It is obvious how little we all know about the country, its striking landscapes, warm people, colorful markets, and unique cuisine. Wilderness Travel prepared a very comprehensive tour visiting all the old Moroccan capitals as well as its mountains, Atlantic coast, and, of course, the Sahara desert. Along the way we learned about Berber culture and history.

Photographs cannot give justice to this incredible country. You must experience it in person.
