Explore the desert, meet the nomadic Berbers, and browse through Marrakech with our weekend trips
Our Weekends in Morocco :
The Berber lifestyle:
Experience the traditional lifestyle of the Berbers, the indigenous people of North Africa whose rich traditions are thought to date back ten thousand years.
You’ll explore the local markets where you can pick up numerous items including fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables, handmade crafts, and see how the local women’s cooperative creates argan oil. You’ll also be treated to a traditional Berber lunch, a meal filled with flavours, spices, and colour, that many of our customers say it’s the best food they’ve ever tasted.
The Berbers are a truly wonderful people, with fascinating culture, customs, and a friendly, welcoming nature.
