Visit Morocco

The Kingdom of Morocco is one of the most romantic locations to visit on the entire African continent.  Not only is there the lengthy coastlines to enjoy along the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, but there are also rugged mountains and large tracts of desert that offer their own exploration opportunities. The tourism sector is well-developed in this nation, with more than 10 million coming to visit annually.

Most visitors come to Morocco in April or in autumn, with its location to Europe and the fantastic beaches serving as the main tourism draw. When you can drag yourself away from the beach, there are also ancient sites for Roman and Islamic origin to explore as well, along with unique landscapes and incredible cultural opportunities.

A visit to Marrakech is an excellent opportunity to experience first-hand what the culture and history of Morocco is all about. Casablanca, the largest city in the kingdom, has a well-developed infrastructure to support the needs of any visitor. Botanical gardens, trekking opportunities, and growing desert exploration tours can all be part of a visit to Morocco today as well.

Go elbow-to-elbow with other shoppers in medinas to find hidden gems and treasures. Bring your golf clubs to enjoy world-class championship courses. Then expect to enjoy an afternoon on the beach with a favorite cocktail before enjoying one of many fine dining experiences. Once the sun sets, you get to experience the best part of what Morocco has to offer: the opportunity to do it all again the next day.

Geography of Morocco

Mountains

There are several fantastic mountain ranges in Morocco on which you can climb, hike, ski or ride mules. The amazing variety of foliage, natural water features and mountain peaks is captivating.

The mountains are often heavily wooded, with firs and cedars on the higher slopes. In winter many of the mountains are covered in snow. Many mountain animals live here, including the unusual Atalas monkey, along with a large variety of migratory birds and birds of prey, such as eagles. There is a large bird reserve located where the Moulouya river flows into the Mediterranean sea.

Amtoudi Peak: Located south of Agadir. You can either climb the 20–30 cm narrow, rocky trail along the edge, or hire a mule to do the job for you. A Spectacular view awaits you at the top.

Atlas Mountains: Filling most of the northwestern corner of Africa, the Atlas are divided into 5 regions stretching from Morocco, through northern Algeria and touching Tunisia.

Morocco has the Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti Atlas. The High Atlas is the highest range, with Jabal Toubkal stretching to 4,165 metres. The Middle Atlas reaches 3,350 metres and the Anti Atlas does not reach higher than 2,531 metres, but it still has some very rugged landscape. At the edge of the Anti-Atlas in the extreme south, the scenery is consists of vast, eroded gorges which flow with the rivers into the dry, desolate wastes of the Sahara desert.

Chefchaouen Mountains: Located in the north east, south of Tetouan. The Chefchaouen Mountains have two peaks, Jebel Meggou at 1,625 meters above sea level and Jebel Tisouka with its mosque on top at 2,050 meters.

Oregano Mountains, Taliouine: Located near Tiznit, south of Agadir. These mountains are covered with oregano and transmit the scent throughout the valley. At the top of these mountains (1,500 meters above sea level) are two caves used by goats for shelter.

Rif Mountains: Located on the northernmost area of Morocco on the north eastern limits of the Atalas mountains. The Rif mountains are made up of steep cliffs, near the coastline of Mediterranean Morocco where the terrain is rugged.

Sarhro Mountains: Located south west of Marrakesh. They are a wonderful winter trekking destination as the desert cools and the High Atlas Mountains become covered with snow. It is a remote area adorned with volcanic monoliths, vegetated plateaux, canyons, tiny Berber villages and the nomadic Ait Atta people. The Sarho are arguably the most charming mountains in the whole of Morocco

Setti Fatma: Located at the end of the Ourika Valley in Marrakesh. It has seven beautiful waterfalls, breathtaking views and mountain long trails for hardened hikers.

Tafraoute Mountains: Located south east of Agadir. The rocky, pink mountains here are the main attractions. A Belgian artist, Jean Verame, once painted some of the rocks blue in 1984, although these have now faded.

Tan Tan Mountains: Located down south. Known for its very flat peak and hollowness in some parts of the mountain.

Rivers

Morocco has the most extensive river system in North Africa. Its rivers generally flow northwest to the Atlantic or southeast towards the Sahara Desert. The main rivers of Morocco are the Sebou which runs into the Atlantic, and the Moulouya running into the Mediterranean.

Deserts

To the south and east lies the Sahara Desert. The Sahara is the world’s largest desert and in Arabic its name means “wilderness”. The Sahara does not fit the traditional idea of an entirely flat and waterless area. There are streams in the hills and the desert oases support both human and animal life.

Plants in the desert region survive with little water; some have very deep roots, others have small leaves or spines. Desert animals must also survive with little water and many, eg. the desert fox, remain hidden during the heat of the day others, such as gazelles, travel many miles in search of water.

Fertile Plains

These are to be found along the Atlantic coast, stretching to the Atlas Mountains and they are rich for agriculture, producing most of the country’s fruit and vegetables. It is well irrigated by the melt water from mountain snows from the Atlas. Typical plants are orange trees, date palms and cork oak trees.
