  • 2 Figuig Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Figuig

    Figuig, in the eastern tip of Morocco far from the usual tours, is one of North Africa's most famous oases and has preserved all its charm and authenticity thanks to that isolation. At an altitude of 900m, it is on the edge of a depression at the foo..

  • 4 Todra Gorge Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Tinerhir

    Nature and gardens

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Agard-Oudad

  • 8 Hassan Tower Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

  • 14 Bou Inania Medersa Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    Rue Nejjarine MA - Meknès

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Place Jemaa el Fna MA - Marrakech

  • 19 Erg Chebbi Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Merzouga

    Starting in Erfoud, after many kilometres of stony desert making for a rather harsh landscape, one is struck by the lushness of the pink and golden sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. This is the only erg (dune sea) in the Moroccan Sahara. It stretches from no..

  • 20 Jaffar Cirque Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    MA - Midelt

    Getting to Jaffar Cirque requires an effort. The extremely rough track from Midelt can only be driven on in a 4x4, in the summer, and you'll have to inquire about its condition. Access via Jaffar Gorge is less problematic. But the site is awesome. At..
