Morocco

Tailor made holidays in Morocco from Rocksure Luxury Travel. Luxury vacations in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains and the wonderful city of Marrakech.

The Kingdom of Morocco is one of the most exotic countries in Africa, yet it is only three hours or so from London by air and just a 90 minute ferry crossing from Algeciras in Spain. There are no herds of elephant on the plains or leopards in the trees, but there is dramatic scenery, distinctive architecture, much cultural interest, and fun shopping in the souks for colourful scarves, carpets, silverware and so on, while all around is a traditional lifestyle which has seen little change for centuries.

In addition to all these attractions, it is great to be able to find warm sunshine at times of year when Europe’s weather is far from reliable – such as March, April, May, October and November – and, indeed, during the winter months.

And Morocco offers luxury to the visitor, too. There are superb hotels and restaurants in Marrakech, for example, and grand villas and luxurious riads to be rented as well. There are also some fine hotels in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, to the south of Marrakech, and the more adventurous can drive up and over the mountains and down the other side to the edge of the Sahara Desert, home of the Bedouin tribes.

The Rocksure team knows the country well and can tailor a holiday to Morocco which combines the best of everything and provides the ideal getaway for your party.  We have a superb collection of luxury holidays in Morocco with accommodation available in Marrakech and the beautiful Atlas Mountains.  Get in touch and start your journey in Morocco now. 

  • Experience the Sahara desert

    The Sahara Desert, known as "The Great Desert” in Arabic, is the
    world’s largest hot desert. Its 9.2 million square kilometres border ten of Africa’s countries, and is a must see for travellers all over the world.

    Expeditions to this vast desert can vary from day trips to
    overnight stays. Enjoy riding your own camel to watching the beauty of the sunrise, or experience the Erg Chebbi dunes whilst the sunset changes the colour of the sand.

    Overnight stays can start at the “Quarzate” also known as
    “the Gate of the Sahara” and continue through the Zagora Dunes, and why not include an authentic Moroccan dinner under the endless stars of the Saharan sky?

  • Dine and dance with Bedouin Tribesmen

    The Bedouin tribesmen have lived amongst Morocco’s Atlas mountains for thousands of years, defying the harsh environment, and still staying loyal to their ancient traditions.

    Meaning “desert dweller in Arabic”, the Berbers reside in tribes scattered throughout North Africa. Although remote, their reputation for being friendly and joyous is strong, and all for good reason.

    Be welcomed into Berber life: sit amongst the tribes whilst tucking into authentic Bedouin cuisine such as flatbread, olives and traditional beef tagine, washed down with home-made Moroccan tea; Indulge in a spot of dancing and sing alongside these wonderful tribesmen and women long into the evening, an experience that will stay with you forever.

  • Enjoy a round of Golf

    Get back into the swing of things amongst some of the world's
    best golf courses.

    In recent years Morocco has become one of the best golfing destinations. With its glorious weather, fabulous food, and a wide range of excellent golf courses, it comes as no surprise that Morocco regularly entices golfers both new and professional.

    With such a variety of courses to choose from, including classic courses sitting in splendid isolation, such as that of The Old Lady at the Royal Marrakech, but also new and excitingly designed lay-outs including PalmGolf in Marrakech, Morocco’s offerings are nearly endless, and proves that it is indeed, a Golfer’s Paradise.

  • Walk the Souks

    Be mesmerised by snake dances, enchanted by story tellers, and transported into world full of colour and ancient magic on a walking Souk Tour.

    Vibrant with colours, sights and smells to tantalize and excite your senses, the labyrinth of winding streets are home to an abundance of tiny stalls and shops, offering everything from aromatic spices and traditional cuisines, to sumptuous fabrics and crafted ornaments, artwork and jewellery and everything in between.

    Perfect your bargaining skills with the friendly stall owners, observe the rhythm of the Gnawa dancers, and enjoy the traditional Moroccan musicians as you discover one of Morocco’s finest gems.

  • Trek the Atlas Mountains

    Perfect for the adventurers who want to experience the true
    traditional Berber culture of Morocco. Take in Morocco’s beauty from up to 2000m above sea level.

    Experience the agricultural lands, pass through the red clay villages
    and feast your eyes upon the wonderful views the Atlas Mountains have to offer.

    Stop off for a relaxed picnic lunch before visiting the secret springs and waterfalls of these glorious mountains, before descending back down through the valleys of juniper and pine, along the way passing shepherds and goatherds tending to their flocks.

Morocco has a diverse but generally tropical climate with regional and seasonal variations. Coastal areas experience a more Mediterranean climate whereas inland regions tend to be hotter and drier.
The south of the country is dominated by desert so temperatures are very hot throughout most of the year. However, these temperatures do fall significantly both at night time and, with the presence of the snow-capped Atlas Mountain Range, altitude.

The rains visit the Moroccan coast from November to March but the country is mainly dry. The relatively high winter temperatures and dry summers make Morocco a fantastic year-round destination. To avoid the heat, the best time to visit is during the shoulder seasons of April to May and September to November.
