Morocco is a beautiful African country located on the north western atlantic coast of Africa. Visiting Morocco means seeing the Atlas Mountains in the interior of the country, large areas of desert in the south eastern part of the country and an extensive coastline on the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea. Some of the best times to visit Morocco happen to be in the fall, winter and spring. The desert and mountains change so much during these times, along with the landscapes and cityscapes. We’ll see the beauty of the Atlas Mountains, the UNESCO World Heritage city Marrakech, cooking classes, medina tours, spa time, and of course, the highlight of the trip, visiting the Moroccan desert.
