Family Holidays in Morocco

Camels & Kites

Morocco is a wonderful country for a family holiday. It is culturally fascinating, has lots of things to do, an exciting choice of locations with a great climate and is only a short flight away from the UK and Europe.

We can tailor your Moroccan family holiday for any month of the year, meeting a wide range of budgets, age ranges and interests, thanks to our experience, unique programmes and flexibility. (see Reviews)

Inspire your family holiday with:

  • Genuine Moroccan hospitality - Moroccans love children
  • An exciting range of environments - desert, mountains, cities, coast and historic towns
  • Exciting activities including camel treks, whitewater rafting, surfing and short hill treks
  • Fascinating and beautiful countryside - exotic crops and unusual wildlife such as tree-climbing goats and wild tortoises
  • A unique (and educational) insight into Islamic and Berber ways of life.

An excellent place to go for a wide range of cultural activities in a family environment. Adorn yourself with henna tattoos, go to a local hammam, learn to cook or to speak some Arabic, ride donkeys, visit Berber villages and much more - see Taroudant for Families.

Travel Times

Travel times between locations can be significant - see our journey times map to help plan an enjoyable holiday.

For example the journey between locations by taxi or MPV vary from a relatively straight, flat road from Marrakech to Essaouira (2.5 hours), to mountain routes through the High Atlas starting a short drive (1 hour) from Marrakech, to an exciting coastal mountain edge route from Taroudant to Essaouira (4 hours).
