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.

"Special mention for our final stay in Marrakech (not enough room on the form!!) at Riad Kniza. We have never stayed anywhere that we have been more welcome. Truly felt like our home and the staff were WONDERFUL! Genuinely sorry to leave and will definitely be back, Location excellent, service and food exemplary, and very good value for money. A little haven in the lunacy of this amazing city. Also Kasbah Ellouze - stunning location and brilliant staff. Felt very authentic. Landscape is dramatic and hugely photogenic. Desert trip amazing - we had the camp to ourselves so it felt very personal. Would have perhaps liked to stay an extra night as the dunes are quite breathtaking. Organisation completely hassle-free. Car hire (and Neureddine, the rep) very helpful. Driving pretty much without hitch apart from one bandit incident down south (we had a heads up from your info, so managed to avoid!!) Roads excellent, especially over the Atlas. A really fantastic trip, thank you"

"Our holiday was luxurious and well organised. The accommodations were all beautiful with welcoming staff. We had a fabulous introduction to morocco. Our main driver was very well informed and attentive to our needs. The service throughout and was excellent and personalised. We had lots of privacy and quiet seclusion."

A Gonzales, March 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

"Thank you for our travel documents and for your great organisation. We are now really looking forward to the holiday. I was pleased to see that we have a free additional driver with the car as we both drive and it might give my husband a break if he needs it. It is details like this which make all the difference!"

R Adkins, March 2014

"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

"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

"A mere hello to congratulate you on the wonderful itinerary you designed for both my husband and I. An A+++ (American grading) for the choice of our driver, Mr Maazouz Jamal who took great care of us from point A to Z during all the time of our visit in beautiful Morocco. Mr Maazouz is also an excellent and very safe driver.... our appreciation for sharing with us his deep knowledge and his love for his country. An excellent ambassador."

M. Robertson, January 2011

"We decided our own itinerary which Rediscover then put together - bus, train, booking of hotels and riads, tours and car hire with driver. Everything worked perfectly and we were very happy with accommodation. Particular mention must be given to our driver, Jamal, who was the perfect companion at the end of our holiday - even taking us to his home for a meal before taking us to the airport."

P Wedderburn, November 2013

"My husband and l had a fantastic holiday in Morocco. The Riad in Marrakech (Kniza) especially blew us away. The efficiency of transport links were extremely impressive - with us on the dot of arrangements. We were also very pleased with the way we were dealt with by the administration of Rediscover the world. Thank you so much."
