RE-OPENING for UK & EU visitors June 15th.
Few destinations can offer Morocco's variety of scenery and experiences. Rediscover the World offers a fully tailor-made holiday service backed by a thorough knowledge of the country and its people. Whatever you are looking for there is truly something for everyone and we are the experts in making your arrangements come to life.
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 to enjoy Morocco's culture, whether it be visiting a museum or an art gallery, trying some traditional cookery, experiencing a hammam or simply spending a day with the friendly Berber people.
Morocco's incredible scenery and legendary hospitality are unquestionably real, as you'll confirm when you have explored a country, still waiting to be rediscovered.
Rediscover Trekking - be independent with confidence !
For over 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. The Southern region of Morocco with its kasbahs and easy access to the Sahara has grown 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.
We are proud of the expertise we offer helping customers putting together practical and interesting itineraries to travel around Morocco; to begin the process we include on our website some of the most popular routes as examples. 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".
School & College Groups
Each year (since the 1990s) we arrange holidays to Morocco for individuals and groups from all over the world, including company incentive programmes. We 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.
We look forward to being of service.
Regions to visit
The Anti Atlas Mountains are a little off the beaten track, albeit popular among climbers. Visit on a day trip from the coast or on a more leisurely stay at one of the small hotels we have chosen.
Morocco's beautiful coastline stretches for hundreds of miles and is mostly undeveloped. Agadir in the south is the main resort, although the beaches at Essaouira, Safi and Mirleft are impressive.
Morocco's mountain ranges are areas of wilderness and beauty offering breathtaking scenery with wonderful hotels & kasbahs to entice you away from the cities.
Car Hire in Morocco for self-drive holidays plus our excellent English-speaking private driver service.
The High Atlas Mountains are dominated by North Africa's highest peaks which tower above the Berber villages providing a backdrop for a relaxing break or some stunning hiking.
The ancient and historic capitals of Morocco - Fez, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat (plus Casablanca).
The Mid Atlas Mountains, between Fez and Marrakech, offer excellent trekking, a limited ski season and a beautifully scenic drive.
The Rif Mountains in the north of Morocco hide impressive Roman ruins at Volubilis, a thermal spa at Moulay Yacoub and one of the prettiest towns in Morocco - Chefchaouen.
In our opinion no trip to Morocco is complete without a visit to the Sahara. The best places to access the desert are from Merzouga (Erg Chebbi) and Zagora (Erg Lihoudi & Ch'Gagga).
High quality private desert adventures to Morocco's Sahara region. Stunning scenery throughout, experience Bedouin culture, true desert landscapes, camels, luxury camps and endless sunshine!
Southern Morocco has become popular with those who have an adventurous spirit and a yearning for the open road, clean air and panoramic vistas.
Cities to visit
Not strictly an Imperial City but Casablanca is an important gateway to Morocco, a thriving business centre with an old medina, Art Deco buildings & the Hassan II Mosque is simply incredible.
Demnate is a small off-the-beaten-track town in the foothills of the High Atlas to the northeast of Marrakech. Here, the kasbah guest houses offer an ideal base to learn more of the Berber culture.
El Jadida lies on the Atlantic and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. It offers a mild climate and attracts both history enthusiasts and beach lovers.
Fez offers an abundance of history, tradition and dramatic topography; no city encapsulates Morocco's heritage to such a great extent. An ideal base from which to tour the sights of Northern Morocco.
At the head of the valley leading up from the market town of Asni is the small village of Imlil. Surrounded by the imposing majesty of the Toubkal Massif it is the perfect start point for trekking.
Surrounded by magnificent waterfalls this hillside hotel is recommended for walking, bird watching, fossil hunting or merely putting your feet up by the pool.
Marrakech nestles on a large plain at the foot of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains; a perfect introduction to Morocco or an ideal base for exploring the mountains, Sahara & Atlantic coast.
Meknes became capital in the 17th century thanks to Sultan Moulay Ismail (the Louis XIV of Morocco); its grandiose and extravagant monuments are often compared with those in Versailles.
Ouarzazate is the first town most see after crossing the High Atlas; the unofficial capital of the south of Morocco. Formerly a Foreign Legion outpost it is a useful base for adventures further south.
Ouirgane is situated in the dramatic foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, surrounded by almond blossom in early spring and just an hour's drive south of Marrakech.
Rabat is the capital of modern Morocco; its well-designed boulevards reflect the grandeur of a state capital. Sights include the Royal Palace, Hassan Tower, the necropolis and grand Mauosoleum.
Safi is a small town beside the Atlantic which is famous around the world for the quality of its ceramic pottery.
The city of Tangier should not be overlooked; it is an ideal arrival or departure point for railway tours and self-drive itineraries; good links on ferries from Spain or Gibraltar.
Taroudant is a frequently overlooked, walled city just an hour's drive inland from Agadir, located within the Souss Valley. It is sometimes referred to as the 'Grandmother of Marrakech'.
Resorts to visit
Agadir is Morocco's premier resort with a golden sandy beach sweeping for miles, lapped by the Atlantic. A dazzling array of boutiques, cuisine and activities makes Agadir very cosmopolitan.
Asilah is a small, former Portuguese town with a bohemian atmosphere. The enticing medina is surrounded by 15th century ramparts, rugged coastline and a beautiful beach.
