Morocco Great Loop of South (MA-MTI-03)

7 Days

Overview

Countless stories weave around the rich tapestry of Moroccan culture, immediately springing stories like A Thousand and One Nights to mind – conjuring images of boisterous, energetic marketplace and hawkers shouting out wares and magical potions. Morocco, a land of mystical discovery is a journey that begins in a kingdom almost as old as civilization when it first began.

Morocco is a North African country that has a coastline on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It has borders with Western Sahara to the south, Algeria to the east and the Spanish North African territories of Ceuta and Melilla on the Mediterranean coast in the north. It is just across the Strait of Gibraltar from Gibraltar.
