Ride a camel, see the desert, explore maze-like medinas, and drink tea with Berbers. Morocco could have been tailor-made for travellers. The mountains – not just the famous High Atlas but also the Rif and suntanned ranges leading to Saharan oases – offer simple, breathtaking pleasures: night skies glistening in the thin air, and views over a fluffy cloudbank from the Tizi n’Test pass. On lower ground, there are rugged coastlines, waterfalls and caves in forested hills, and the mighty desert. Visiting Morocco is like visiting your dreams.
