The Amazing Landscapes of Morocco

oasis-ma_20170621-200515_1
When I arrived in Morocco , I expected to be blown away by the food, the bustling souks, and the vibrant culture. What I didn't expect was to leave Morocco impressed by the sheer amount of geographic diversity that this small nation has to offer. Roughly the size of California you can start your day on the ocean and arrive in th...

Advice for Traveling to Morocco, from a Wild Alum

Advice for Traveling to Morocco, from a Wild Alum
Three-time Wildland Adventures alumni Tom & Patti Saunders recently returned from a 13-day exploration of Morocco that roamed from the medinas of Fez and Marrakech to the serene oceanside town of Essouira to the oases and kasbahs of the Skoura Valley to the windswept dunes of Erg Chebbi They even emailed us in the midst of their journey to share their happiness: “For now, just a quick email to thank you. This trip has truly been amazing. We've just arrived in Marrakech and I have to let you know that the accommodations, choice of route, guides, our exceptional driver Kamal , our camel in the Sahara, the Atlas Mountains experience, and every day of this tour, could not have been better. What an experience. Enchanting!” Descriptions don’t do Morocco justice but the Saunders’ comments about traveling there should be inspiration for everyone. Here’s some more, in their own words:  What were...

What's so different about Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?

What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?
I recently had the opportunity to answer that great question: "What's so different about   Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco ?" What we do in Morocco (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) is individual and personalized, much different than virtually all other tour companies running adventure trips in Morocco. Our driver/escorts, and local guides we meet up with along the way, will not take Wildland travelers to places without asking. For example, before setting out each morning our lead driver/guide, Kamal  Abdelfadil , will show you where you've already traveled, where you are planning to go and do that day,and what your options are to see and do. So, the extent to which you do some additional research as we are planning your itinerary, or simply in anticipation of your trip to Morocco , it will help you to have an idea of places you would like...

How to Make Local Connections in Morocco

How to Make Local Connections in Morocco
I would say the single most difficult thing about planning a trip is finding an authentic cultural experience with the locals and I'm not talking about pulling over in a small town to buy some souvenirs. I'm talking about a real sincere opportunity to get to know the locals, without artifice and without a script. By far my favorite memories have been getting the chance to get to know the locals and experience their daily life. Finding that local connection is especially arduous when planning a  trip to Morocco . Morocco is undeniably a beautiful and fascinating country, but not the easiest place to find an authentic experience. It's really important if your planning to travel to Morocco that you go with a travel company that really knows Morocco well and more importantly, has amazing guides.  Having a local guide that you can trust is the true key to a successful trip in Morocco. Luckily...
