Everything You Need to Know

There are four distinct seasons in Morocco, and depending where in the country you are planning to visit, the time of year can make a big difference. Generally speaking, spring (February to May) and fall (September to November) are the best times to visit for a majority of the country, however if you are heading into the High Atlas Mountains, it is often better to aim for summer months. See below for a full explanation of Morocco’s different seasons to decide when is best for you.

One of the best experiences that sets our journeys apart is our private luxury camp in the Sahara. Spacious tents are hung with richly-hued Moroccan fabrics, and there’s a comfortable outdoor sitting area where we can watch the sunset and stargaze beneath a spectacular night sky. Far from the noise and crowds of other camps, you’ll feel as if we have the desert all to ourselves.

I knew this trip would be great but it was BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS! What an exciting, exotic, beautiful, and diverse country. I loved the High Atlas Mountains, so exceptionally scenic, the cities, medinas, and the sights, sounds, and aromas. The people were very friendly and gracious. Marrakesh is a happening, fun city and coastal Essaouira is pretty and peaceful. I loved it all!


Morocco was wonderful and we loved the trip, which was extraordinarily well-designed as usual for Wilderness Travel. When we compare WT itineraries and experiences to other companies, we consistently find that WT provides unique access to sites that other companies might ignore. There is a commitment to a complete, special experience that we appreciate.


The trip, itinerary, guides (main guide and every location guide), our driver, hotels, venues we stopped at along the way and everything else far exceeded our expectations. I have visited almost 50 countries and we both agree that Morocco is on the top of our lists.


Truly a wonderful, once in a lifetime trip. It was fascinating to go from an incredibly modern city like Casablanca to Berber desert camps in the Sahara. Everything was handled perfectly—we never had to worry about a thing!


An amazing range of sites, landscape, activities: the desert trek was a really unique experience that I’ll remember always; the mountain landscape was gorgeous; visiting Essaouira gave us a taste of the coast; everything was well organized but allowed flexibility.


It was our 13th WT trip and we were not disappointed. We continue to be loyal clients because of trips like this.


This was my first group ‘adventure travel’ trip and it exceeded all my expectations. I could not have enjoyed so many aspects of Moroccan life and culture had I been traveling on my own.
