Welcome to Morocco and the start of your adventure! We will meet you at Marrakech airport and transfer you to your luxury hotel and spa close to the city centre. Marrakech is a vibrant city, and its central Djemaa el Fna square is continually bustling with musicians, performers and lively local food stalls.
Adrenaline time! We set off early for a helicopter flight over Marrakech and the surrounding areas. In the afternoon its exploration of Marrakech by foot as our guide shows you the main sights. A definite highlight is the sprawling souk, with alleyways that twist and turn around the silver ware, leatherwork, clothing and art stalls.
We will pick you up from the Riad this morning and head out to Terres d'Amanar, an fantastic outdoor adventure park in the Atlas mountains. There are plenty of adventures on offer suitable for children aged 5 and upwards - you can swing across ravines, climb amongst the treetops, ride horses or mountain bike around the nature park's rugged terrain. We will then drive on to the Valley of Ourigane, home to many Berber villages and one for the most picturesque parts of the Atlas.
Adventure Tintin style - the Sahara! Today it's a long but amzing drive to Zagora, travelling via the Anti Atlas mountains, Berber villages and the amazing Draa Valley. At Zagora we will hop onto camels and trek into Sahara to the remote Bedouin camp. Mop the sweat off your brow and hope for an imminent oasis as we trek over dusty desert dunes – you’ll truly feel part of the film script! Settle into your tent and then pull back the canvas on a starry night of Bedouin music, entertainment and dinner. The camp also offers the opportunity to sleep out under the stars if you wish.
This morning we hop back on our camels and head back to Zagora. Then its back to Marrakech, but not before seeing one more true highlight of Morocco - medieval Ait Ben Haddou. The fortified city of Ait Benhaddou - built for defence purposes high on a hill with a bubbling steam within it shadows, the stunningly well preserved medieval city is a true highlight of our tour. Used as a backdrop in many films, its beauty is unequal to any other fortified village in south Morocco.
The end of your Moroccan adventure, but not before a (pleasant!) surprise or two for the children. Then, a transfer to the airport in time for your onward international flight home.
