10 Reasons to Take a Solo Trip to Morocco

Here are 10 reasons that you should take the plunge and join one of our Morocco group tours on a solo adventure!

1. Expert Local Guidance

The guides on our group tours are all Moroccan locals, and they provide expert knowledge into Morocco's culture, history, and hidden gems, enhancing your travel experience. Further, they know all the best places to eat, the souvenir shops to avoid, and where you can withdraw fee-free cash!

2. Making new friends

Travelling with like-minded individuals fosters a sense of camaraderie and friendship, making solo travel less daunting and more enjoyable. We often see first time solo travellers book a second trip with the new friends they made on their first solo adventure! Our travellers come from around the English-speaking world, but predominantly from Australia, the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. We take travellers of different ages, from those in their 20s and 30s, right up to those in their 70s and beyond - a passion for travel is the only requirement! On any given Morocco tour, expect around one third of the group to be solo travellers, alongside a mix of couples, family and friends.

3. Cultural Immersion

Our group tours are packed with immersive experiences for solo travellers to enjoy. Whether it’s riding a camel across the Sahara Desert, camping under the stars in a traditional Bedouin tent or learning to make tagine, your Moroccan journey is sure to be packed with authentic cultural experiences.

4. Logistical ease

Planning a solo trip can be overwhelming, but we handle all the tricky bits when you book with us! You just need to arrive in Morocco, we’ll pick you up from the airport and handle all the logistics from there!

5. Efficient itineraries

If we asked you to plan a 2-week solo travel itinerary to Morocco, where would you start? Would you know the best way to get from Marrakech to Casablanca, or how you book a camel ride in the inhospitable Sahara Desert? It can be tough working out the best ways to get around an unfamiliar country and deciding what to visit and what to leave off your itinerary, particularly if you don't speak the local language. As Morocco experts, our itineraries have been perfected over many years, and we are confident that they take in all the main attractions and plenty of hidden gems, helping you to see as much of Morocco as possible on your trip, without the faff of organising things yourself!

6. Safety in Numbers

Whilst Morocco is a safe travel destination, solo travellers on group tours enjoy the added benefit of travelling in a group of other tourists. This can be particularly useful if solo travelling to Morocco as a woman, as your group can stick together!

7. Safety Net

Following on from the above, although the majority of trips to Morocco are trouble free, a group tour offers a safety net for travellers. In the unlikely event of emergencies or unforeseen circumstances, having a group and tour guide, as well as our dedicated team back home, provides a useful support system.

8. Cost-Effective

When you book a group tour, all of your accommodation, transportation and sightseeing is packaged together. This saves you money on your solo trip to Morocco, compared to booking all the different elements of your trip separately.

9. Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventures

Our group tours take you off the beaten path to discover hidden oases, remote desert villages, and stunning landscapes that you might not find on your own. Yes, you’ll still see all the highlights, but the alpine village of Midelt, the fishing town of Essaouira and the verdant Talassemtane National Park are all places you can see on our tours that aren’t typically known about by many travellers!


10. Peace of Mind

With a group tour, solo travellers can enjoy peace of mind knowing that they're in good hands, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the beauty and wonder of Morocco without any worries.

Tips for Travelling Alone in Morocco

If you are planning a solo trip to Morocco, then there are precautions to take in order to keep safe, particularly for women. These tips apply to many countries, not just Morocco, and are especially pertinent for solo female travellers in Marrakech and other large cities in Morocco and beyond. Solo female travel is incredibly enriching, but it’s important to take steps to ensure safety throughout your travels!

Morocco is a very safe country. But you can never be too careful, especially when exploring larger cities, where crime can be more common. Follow these tips to ensure safety in Morocco!


Dress Modestly

Respect local customs by dressing modestly, especially in more conservative areas. Loose-fitting clothing that covers your shoulders and knees is recommended to blend in and avoid unwanted attention.

Be Aware of Cultural Norms

Familiarise yourself with Moroccan cultural norms and traditions, including appropriate behaviour and interactions with locals. Being mindful of cultural differences can help you navigate social situations more comfortably.

Stay Vigilant

Exercise caution and stay vigilant, especially in crowded places such as markets and public transportation. Keep your belongings secure, perhaps in a money belt, safely out of reach of pickpockets.

Use Reliable Transportation

Opt for reputable transportation options, such as official taxis, especially when travelling at night or in remote areas. Avoid hitchhiking or accepting rides from strangers.

Stay Connected

Keep family and friends informed about your whereabouts and itinerary. Consider installing an e-SIM on your smartphone, purchasing a local SIM card or portable Wi-Fi device to stay connected and access maps and communication apps.

Trust Your Instincts

Trust your instincts and listen to your gut feelings. If a situation feels uncomfortable or unsafe, remove yourself from it and seek assistance if necessary.

Learn Basic Phrases

Learn some basic phrases in Arabic or French to facilitate communication with locals. This effort can show respect for the culture and may help you in various situations.
