Mucha’s Magical Morocco!
October 1, 2020 - October 13, 2020| $3899
Mucha is all about encouraging awesome women to step out of their comfort zone with new found friends and explore this truly amazing planet! Places like Morocco! A country bound by ancient mystique, with the bustling markets of Marrakech and Fes to the boundless Saharan Desert. The Nomadic Bedouins and Berbers in the Atlas Mountains, the Dades and Todra Gorges, the Blue City of Chefchouen to the azure ocean and ancient port of Essaouira. Steeped in magical history – Morocco lingers still in times long gone.
So Mucha has put together this fabulous GIRLS ONLY tour! With our own transport and English-speaking guide to accompany us, this is a beautifully safe way to explore a country with a culture so very different to our own! We will stay at some of the most beautiful riads, bathed in Moroccan mystique, ornately decorated with beautiful water features, mosaic tiles, intricate wall hangings and Persian rugs. Travelling across this ancient land we witness the changing landscapes, from bustling cities, wide open spaces with their own unique patchwork style colourations, surrounded by distant mountains, layered with the earthy and rustic colours of the region to timeworn coasts.
We begin and end our North African adventure in Casablanca and we’ll start by heading for the seaside town of Essaouira (pronounced Essa-Weera) where we can wander through the spice-scented lanes and palm-lined avenues of the fortified medina, browse the many art galleries and boutiques, relax in some of the country’s best hotels and watch fishing nets being mended and traditional boats being constructed in the hugely atmospheric port.
From here we move on to Marrakech, the bustling city with the world-famous Night Market with wizened old storytellers, snake charmers, spice bars and shishas. Beautiful glass and earthenware, Moroccan leather and so much more for sale. Bargaining is a must, but we are sure our guide will help us with the banter! The sights and sounds are a delightful assault on the senses. Don’t worry though, we will have an English speaking guide to help us work out the bargains ansd show us around. Whilst in Marrakech we jump onto quad bikes for a tour just to add a bit more excitement to an already awesome trip! The next day we get to see more of the amazing country side on the way to High Atlas, taking in Tizi nTickha, Ouarzazate , Ait Ben Haddou and the beautiful Boulamin Dadès Valley. Sitting in the rain shadow of the Central Atlas, the Dadès Gorge presents a dramatic landscape: ancient rust-red and mauve mountains stripped back to zigzagging layers of strata and knobbly rock formations. A rush of springtime water puddles in the valley where irrigation channels siphon it off to fields of wheat and orchards of fig, almond and olive trees. A series of crumbling kasbahs and ksour(fortified villages) line the valley in the Berber villages of Aït Youl, Aït Arbi and Aït Toukhsine.
We have arranged a tour here so we can explore the Ait Ben Haddou kasbah with a local English-speaking guide. And as per every other night, our hotel is beautiful and unique, with breakfast included every morning. Leaving the Dadès Valley, we make our way through the beautiful Todra Gorge – (the highest oasis in Morocco through Erfoud, Rissani and stopping at our amazing Saharan desert camp in Merzouga. Here we get to luxuriate in beautifully furnished tents (with bathrooms!) that are awaiting us in this desert oasis. And what better way to celebrate spending a night in the desert than with a camel ride? Yep, we do that too! 😉 The we can relax with a champagne under the desert sky! You can bet Mich will have her camera out for the most exquisite sunsets too! The next couple of days takes us through to Medelt (Midelt is situated on the high plains surrounding the Moulouya River) We get some down time here to chill out and check out one of the highest large towns in the where we will stay the night, we also have the opportunity to do a 2 hour bike tour to really get immersed in the town. Next we travel onto the ancient city of Fes where we will spend a couple of nights to rest our now weary bones. It’s up early the next day for a fabulous guided tour to explore the Fes medina with another local English-speaking guide. We get the insight into the people and the culture, and we even go to an amazing carpet emporium where we can purchase beautiful Persian rugs and get them sent back home! The next day we head to Chefchaouen, the absolute jewel of Morocco – the beautiful and famous Blue City.
Nestled into the side of a mountain, the sleepy village walls and doors are painted every shade of blue imaginable. Get your cameras out for this one, girls, it is one of the prettiest little towns we have ever seen! From Chefchaouen we head to Meknes with a stop at Volubilis where we discover some ancient Roman ruins. Once in Meknes we get the opportunity to check out the medinas again with an English speaking guide. A great time to pick up any last-minute gifts and souvenirs. Our tour is coming to an end so we head back to Casablanca, stopping at Rabat along the way. One last night at a beautiful hotel in Casablanca before we head back to the airport.
We get to be immersed in the very essence of this remote and ancient land and come back a very different person.
