Morocco Imperial Cities & Sahara Safari

Color, culture, and cuisine: Morocco has these in spades. After all, this country’s astounding geography stretches from the Mediterranean to the Sahara — and is home to a mélange of Berber, Arab, Spanish, and French influences. The resplendent gardens of Rabat, raw beauty of the Sahara, and boundless energy of Marrakesh: these are just a few of the experiences that make Morocco so captivating.

Rabat, Morocco

Your discoveries of the spectacle that is Morocco begins in its illustrious capital. On a guided city tour, see the exterior of the Royal Palace and its impressive Bab Rouah (Gate of the Winds). From there, visit the ruins and gardens of the Chellah, a 14th-century necropolis.

Meknes, Morocco

Meknes, once the home of the Moroccan sultanate and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tour this ancient city of bustling markets, elaborate gardens, and the immense stables built for the 17th-century sultan Moulay Ismail.

Kasbah of the Oudaya

You’ll also wander among the fountains, greenery, and the fragrant air of the Andalusian Gardens, within the walls of the Kasbah of the Oudayas, as well as enjoying a stop at the unfinished 12th-century Hassan Tower.

Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou

Stop to visit Kasbah Ait-Ben-Haddou, a fortified village (known as an ighrem here) that is as exotic-looking as it is historically fascinating. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has been setting for scenes from many films, including Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and the television series Game of Thrones, and you’ll see why it is so visually appealing when you visit — it’s as if you’ve entered another world.

Medina of Marrakesh

The souks, the snake charmers, the minarets and Old Medina . . . Marrakesh is a dizzying spectacle of seemingly unlimited discoveries. The fashion icon Yves St. Laurent once said that Marrakesh had “taught me color,” and you’ll see firsthand what he meant as we set off on a tour of the city. We’ll start at the aforementioned Old Medina, as we venture back in time in places like the 14th-century Ben Youssef Madrasa (Koranic school); the 12th-century Kubba El Baroudyine with its Almoravid-style dome; the Musée de Marrakesh and the Spice Market; and more.

Atlas Film Studio

Visit to the Atlas Film Studio, where many major movies were filmed, including Lawrence of Arabia, Jewel of the Nile, Jesus of Nazareth, and Kingdom of Heaven.

Roman City of Volubilis

Ensconced in Africa yet standing on the doorstep of Europe, Morocco has been a crossroads of cultures for millenia. You’ll get a glimpse of the past when you visit the Roman city of Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved Roman archaeological sites in North Africa. Discover incredible mosaics among the fragments of stone from ancient dwellings that are scattered throughout these historic ruins. 


Hotel La Berbère Palace Hotel Ouarzazate

Conveniently located near the city center, the First Class La Berbère Palace Hotel is a Berber style hotel featuring three restaurants, an outdoor pool, health club, room service, concierge service, currency exchange, laundry/dry cleaning service, barber/hair stylist, and gift shop. Guest rooms feature air conditioning, in-room Broadband Internet access, cable/satellite TV, minibar, safe, telephone, and private bathroom.

Le Diwan Rabat

Located in the very center of the most royal of the imperial cities in Morocco, alongside embassies and ministries, it’s an ideal location to explore on foot the typical districts and monuments of Rabat. Its facade is a prelude to its style of elegance and sobriety. Le Diwan combines modernity and Moroccan touches for a luxurious and fine stay.

Atlas Medina & Spa

Classic Moorish architecture combines with soothing spa amenities to create a tranquil retreat at the Atlas Medina & Spa Hotel. Savor the cuisine at one of two restaurants or relax by the swimming pool, or indulge in a spa or beauty treatment. The hotel also boasts a pool bar, piano bar, nightclub, hairdresser, hammam (Turkish bath), and gym, plus room service, currency exchange, laundry service, and gift shop.

Hotel Atlas Essaouira

Retreat to a haven of peace and quiet at the Atlas Essaouira & Spa, set between a fine sandy beach and magnificent gardens. The hotel enjoys a superb location facing the sea. Hotel amenities include an international restaurant with terraces that offer views over the ocean, plus a Beach Bar, English Bar, and Cigar Lounge. There is also a sheltered swimming pool, and a fine sandy beach for strolls along the water’s edge. 

Merzouga Luxury Camps

Tucked away in the shadow of the legendary Erg Chebbi sand dunes, Merzouga Luxury Tented Camp offers lavish accommodations amid the otherworldly beauty of the Sahara. Each of the spacious (over 250 square feet) waterproof tents features delightful décor, handmade furniture, and a private bathroom.
