"A desert jeweled with emerald pools, wadis, and sparkling canyons...this is truly a desert paradise.
frequently overlooked; largely unexplored/has not yet truly opened up to the western world; small but welcoming population"
The allure of the Sahara has called to writers and artists for generations. From the colours to the expanse to the mysterious rolling sand dunes, the Sahara and its people have been a source of curiosity and inspiration. It is now an UNESCO World Heritage Site that Camel Treks Australia has the privilege to explore.
We will travel on camel back to desert dwellings with Berbers, the indigenous people of North Africa that make up nearly half of population of Morocco. They refer to themselves as "Amazighe" or "free people" and continue to reside in the desert's interior, living simply, and sharing stories with travellers.
Once guests arrive in Morocco, they will be met at the airport by a crew member. We provide multi-lingual guides and private transportation for the duration of the entire journey. Languages you can expect to hear during your time with us are English, French, Darija Arabic, and several Berber dialects.
Guests will experience the incomparable luxury style of riad accommodation throughout the trip. Riads are comfortable bed and breakfast style hotels that frequently overlook the city with courtyards or gardens in the interior. In the desert, we will stay in well-established and fully furnished tent dwellings as well as wild camp sites where there will always be evening entertainment and chances to explore "The Great Desert."
Day 1: DAY, DATE - MUSCAT
Summary: Arrive in International Airport where you will be picked up by Camel Treks Australia crew and transported to your hotel where you can relax and recover from the long travel with an orientation and Moroccan tea.
Casablanca is the capital of Morocco and home to The Hassan II Mosque or Grande Mosquée Hassan II. This architectural feat is a relatively recent accomplishment, as the mosque was declared completed in 1993, after seven years of around the clock construction and art installation. It is believed that the mosque has the tallest minaret (at over 200 metres) and the mosque itself is the largest in Morocco and 13th largest in the world. At the very top, a light shines towards Mecca. Depending on individual flights, guests may have the opportunity to visit the site.
Meals Included: Dinner (D) this evening will be at Rick's Cafe...just like in Casablanca!
Day 2: DAY, DATE - From MUSCAT to ___
Summary: We meet for breakfast (07:00-08:30) and go over the day's itinerary before departing for Chefchaouen at 09:00. Once a great fortress and now a colourful spectacle, Chefchaouen is an unmissable city renowned for its blue hues that adorn everything from the houses, to government buildings, public spaces, and more. It’s no wonder why its name translates to “Blue Pearl!”
Along the way, we will drive through the Rif Mountains, the first of two ranges we will experience, and make various stops throughout the day for photos, lunch, and a chance to see the Royal Palace in Rabat.
Meals Included: B, D
