About Morocco

The current turmoil affecting Sterling means that holidays in the Euro-zone are costing UK travellers more, with many airports offering a like-for-like exchange rate or even worse. As a result, holidaymakers are looking for getaways that offer better value, which makes Morocco an even more attractive destination.

Morocco truly is a land of contrasts; few destinations can offer Morocco's variety of scenery and experiences. At Rediscover Morocco we offer you our thorough knowledge of this country; whether you are looking for long sweeping beaches, lush mountain valleys, cosmopolitan, vibrant cities or small villages still following the traditional ways of life, there is truly something for everyone.

Which other country within easy reach of the UK and continental Europe offers you such an opportunity to enjoy a fabulously rich and varied holiday experience. Just imagine the possibilities ... you can be hiking or skiing in the Atlas Mountains in the morning, go shopping in the covered souks of Marrakech in the afternoon and enjoy an incredible dinner of freshly caught fish by the Atlantic coast in the evening. Make time, though, to enjoy Morocco's culture, whether it be visiting an art gallery, trying some traditional cookery, experiencing a hammam or simply spending a day with the friendly Berber people.

What does Rediscover Morocco offer?

We have many years of experience personally selecting riads and small, boutique hotels across Morocco, in its fabulous Imperial cities, its stunning coastal resorts, the dramatic Atlas Mountains and, hidden behind them, unrivalled vistas of kasbahs and the Sahara in the glorious southern region. All of these places can be part of a tailor made holiday and many are still relatively undeveloped providing you with unique 'off the beaten track' experiences. We also have a fantastic choice of trekking and desert trips and, if you only have a few days at your disposal, Morocco is close enough for a relaxing or action-packed short break.

Every year (since the 1990s) we arrange holidays to Morocco for individuals and groups from all over the world, including company incentives. We also work closely with schools and colleges arranging field trips in Morocco for tourism, hospitality and geography courses. Why not also contact us to help arrange holidays for those special occasions - honeymoons, anniversaries, "popping the question" and many more.

Why book with Rediscover the World ?

As founders of Rediscover the World we have built on our experience of living and working in Morocco for many years, in fact our connection with the country goes back to the mid 1980s. This experience, together with the knowledge gained from frequent visits, enables us to provide you with the most up-to-date and fullest possible assistance in planning your ideal holiday - we can put together any tailor-made itinerary and are happy to work within most budgets. We are fully bonded (ATOL & TTA) for your full financial security and assistance should any part of your holiday not happen entirely to plan. If you were to assemble your holiday yourself you may not have this sort of protection nor would you be able to benefit from many of our special rates and 24hr assistance and information service whilst in Morocco.

Rediscover Trekking - be independent with confidence !

For two decades Rediscover the World has been offering an exciting and comprehensive range of treks and walking holidays in the High Atlas. All the guided treks and day hikes we arrange are designed to be either individual bookings, if you have arranged other parts of your holiday already, or to be an exciting component of a larger tailor-made holiday. The freedom when booking to decide upon the start date, duration and choice of route means that our treks are very popular, particularly with those who wish to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Atlas Mountain region at their chosen pace rather than as part of a group.

Desert Adventures in Morocco's Sahara

We cannot recommend highly enough our superb selection of Sahara adventures in the south of Morocco. Each trip takes in the Berber, Bedouin culture of the region, stunning scenery, [optional] camel ride and lots of sunshine - all ultimately spending at least one night under the stars (or canvas) amongst the immense dunes of evocative places such as Erg Chebbi and Erg Lihoudi. This Southern region of Morocco with its kasbahs and easy access to the Sahara is growing in popularity so make the most of your visit to this fascinating region by including a trip into the desert as part of a fly-drive itinerary, a private journey or on a private excursion directly from Marrakech.

Fly Drives and Private Journeys

We are proud of the expertise we offer helping customers putting together practical and interesting itineraries to tour Morocco and to begin the process we include on our website some of the most popular routes. Make the most of your time in this fascinating country either on a self-drive basis or with one of our small team of excellent English-speaking drivers as a private journey. Each of these suggested holidays has a summary of the details and a full itinerary giving day by day suggestions of the routes and sightseeing options. We also include guideline costs based upon our recommended places to stay and a list of "What's Included".

We look forward to being of service.

"The desert camps conjured up marvellous food. The visit to The Islamic Library and pottery workshops was actually advertised locally as free, and the guides explained (not hinted, but told ) we were expected quite openly to tip heavily. The weather was poor, we had hailstorms in the Sahara."

S Holdsworth, May 2016

"We really enjoyed our trip to Morocco, the connections, accommodation and guides were all meeting or exceeding our expectations. All connections and bookings went as planned or otherwise advised on the trip. In particular we must give praise to our guide from Imlil in the High Atlas Mountains- Mohamed (?) would have to be one of the best in the business, a genuine man with a lovely family, great companion and excellent skills. His awareness of the surrounding conditions and our abilities ensured that we were always safe but also able to enjoy the experiences. On our first meeting it was the feast of Eid, which meant that original plans needed to be adjusted. Mohamed arranged for his brother to collect us and take us to his mothers house for a share of the traditional feast of lamb, a remarkable day for us. We will in future and have already recommended your group to others. Thank you from both of us."

Mr & Mrs Kenyon, January, 2015

"Well Morocco was amazing and we had an absolutely fab time - so grateful for all your hard work, the riad was amazing - i've never stayed anywhere so luxurious or personal, the desert trip memorable and the whole time relaxing, interesting, cultural and mind blowing. We cannot thank you enough, and we are going to try and get away together without kids more often. We have some great pictures and memories, I will try and put some on the FB site, or if you want me to write a recommendation or anything please let me know."

"We are having a most enjoyable holiday in Morocco; the country seems to be as tolerant as its people. Both the train journeys were very comfortable and I am sure the next part of travelling by our private taxi is going to be as good. Our driver Amin is a friendly, calm, polite young man and is very knowledgable.  Rabat and Fez are very interesting and require more than just a few days of exploration, but tomorrow we will be on our way back to Marrakach via the Atlas Mountains. By the end if our trip our historical knowledge will have increased considerably! Our driver is full of knowledge and a real gentleman. This trip is amazing. Now I will spread the word about Rediscover the World."

R Gatfield, November 2016

"Overall we were happy with the trip and the services provided. Our driver was very friendly, prompt and a very careful driver, all very important to us. Of concern: Our driver said he wanted to do whatever we wanted, but did not always provide us enough information for us to collaborate on decisions. We were not told about the tolls, parking and car washing cost as part of our contract as we were told about the gas cost, therefore it was an unexpected cost. Our driver did not always research and establish directions to hotels before heading to the hotel. Usually this was not a problem."

J Elmer, May, 2015

"It was a great trip you put on for us to Morocco, our driver Aminn was an absolute gem, first class guy. A great trip."

P Street, May 2014

"Just a note to say thanks for helping to arrange our trip to Morocco. The Trios Mages was a real gem. All the transfers were seamless and efficient. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly use your services again, thanks again."

J Treadgold, Oct 2015

"The holiday was great and all that we wanted and expected. The logistics worked a wonder and very efficiently. With respect to the guides both were excellent; very knowledgeable and spoke great English so overall a success. The desert camp – was brilliant…. We were expecting rudimentary and basic but it was very comfortable and exceeded our expectation. Having the different guides for the different elements of the holiday also worked well."

R Hyland, July 2016

"We were very pleased with the accommodation in all parts of the trip. Riad Daria is truly lovely and the service there is top notch! The local guide for trekking was wonderful; super knowledgeable about his country and the routes, very flexible when my husband decided he was not up to the Toubkal summit, and extremely personable with our 12 year-old son. He also took us to a local market in the countryside on the way to the trekking start point, which gave us an insiders view of rural Morocco and the lifestyle. The mule driver/cook was also amazing. We never expected such well-prepared lunches on the trail and dinners in gites and he was just a lovely person to be around. Only one slight glitch in that we phoned local agent to confirm time for pick-up in Essaouira for Marrakech airport transfer. We agreed on 13h but she sent the driver a text to arrive at 13h25. Was not a problem as the route was fairly open but we were nervous when the driver did not at the time that we had agreed upon the day before. We arrived at the airport in plenty of time."

P Bohl, April, 2015

"I just wanted to thank you personally for organising our trip to Morocco. Our Australian friends are quite particular, having travelled the world extensively. Our 11 day trip hit the spot with the three locations allowing us to see a varied culture, scenery and meet some of the locals. All the private transfers worked like clockwork. The walk in the Atlas was just right and our guide - Hassain was excellent. Thanks once again for organising a superb holiday - we will definitely recommend your company and hopefully use you again. A well organised varied itinerary that showed us the many faces of Moroccan life and scenery."
