No, we don’t, and for a good reason. Morocco is a popular destination served by multiple airlines departing from numerous cities with different prices. So instead of having to fly to a city that may not be close or convenient to your home to start your flight to Morocco, you have the freedom to choose the best departure time and city for you and the best price.


The Moroccan Ministry of Tourism used to have the slogan “Morocco, a feast for the senses!” And they were right. Food is everywhere in Morocco, and the best meals can be found in the most unlikely places. From street vendors with incredible grilled saffron chicken to luxury restaurants serving the finest French cuisine. That’s why our tours only include breakfast, so you’re filled and ready for the morning, and an occasional dinner at the end of a long drive or when meal options are limited by location. Our included “Taste of Morocco” street food sampling will give you just a taste of what Morocco offers, so once you find that exceptional dish that you want more of, you’re free to indulge whenever and wherever you choose. So bring your appetite for adventure, and you’ll discover why Morocco still is a feast for the senses.

YES! Travel is an adventure. Worry isn’t. Anything can happen when traveling, from delayed flights to unexpected illnesses. That’s why we recommend travel insurance to all our clients. Of all the insurance providers we’ve worked with, we’ve always had the best results with SquareMouth.

For the best experience, you’ll have a local guide at each city you tour.

Being a Morocco tourist gives you many passes on dressing appropriately for the culture. In big cities, you’ll see tourists in tank tops, booty shorts, and flip-flops like they were strolling on a Florida beach. While tolerated, it marks them as a tourist with everything that comes with it. If you want to “fit in” and be able to better experience Morocco, its culture, and its people, you’ll want to leave the booty shorts at home and dress for the culture. Long pants or long dresses are a great place to start. Tops that cover up to the neck and upper arms are also respectful. And please, don’t wear flip-flops! A pair of sturdy walking shoes or low hiking boots over uneven (and often really dirty) streets will save your feet from damage and all sorts of icky.

Some people travel using SpaceBags, while others fold their clothes neatly. But rest assured, airport security and customs don’t care how organized you are. Everything could get dumped on a table then just tossed back in. From experience, what works best for us is packing using a “Ranger Roll.”


Morocco is in the Northern Hemisphere, so it has the same seasons as the US at the same time. The closest comparison would be to Arizona. Hot in the summers, cool in the winters (right down to the snow). If you’re traveling in winter, spring, or fall, bring at least fleece you can put on when the temperatures dip.

  • Prescription medicines: in their original bottle and labeled with the traveler’s name
  • Anti-diarrheals: Morocco can and will send you running to the bathroom at least once. The change in climate, spices, and food gets everyone, so bring some Imodium or similar.
  • Pain killer: Asprin/Advil/Aleve/etc.
  • CBD/THC: DON’T BRING THEM! Even if you have a prescription

Maybe. It depends on several things:

  • International roaming: Check with your US cellphone provider to see if they offer international roaming in Morocco. If they do, you’ll need to activate the feature and understand the calls, texts, and data usage rates. Be aware that international roaming can be expensive, so setting a budget and monitoring your usage closely is a good idea.
  • Unlocked phone: Make sure your phone is unlocked, allowing you to use a local SIM card in Morocco. If your phone is locked to your US provider, you may need to request an unlock before you travel.
  • Local SIM card: You can purchase a local SIM card in Morocco for your unlocked phone. This will allow you to make local calls and access local data networks at a lower cost than international roaming. You can purchase a SIM card from one of Morocco’s mobile operators, such as Orange, Maroc Telecom, or Inwi.
  • Coverage: Check the coverage of the mobile operators in Morocco to ensure that you have service in the areas you plan to visit. You can check the coverage on the mobile operators’ websites or ask locals about the coverage in the areas you plan to visit.
  • Data speeds: Morocco has a relatively developed telecommunications infrastructure, and you can expect average data speeds of around 10-20 Mbps in urban areas. However, data speeds can be slower in rural areas.
  • Power adapter: Morocco uses Type C and Type E power sockets, which differ from those used in the US. You’ll need to bring a universal power adapter to charge your phone.
  • Language support: Using a Moroccan SIM card means support will be in French and Arabic.
  • Some Moroccan telecommunications companies have blocked the call feature on internet calling apps like Skype and WhatsApp, so you might also need a VPN to use those services.

To avoid the hassle of new SIM cards or Wi-Fi hopping, all SaharaTrek vans have unlimited portable Wi-Fi onboard, so Wi-Fi-enabled calling and apps such as WhatsApp will work without changing your phone or SIM card. So go ahead, post, surf, or call home and tell them what a great time you’re having in Morocco with SaharaTrek!

Officially, same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Morocco and can be punished with anything from three to five years imprisonment and a fine of 1,200 MAD. That said, LGB tourism is often tolerated as long as travelers avoid showing affection in public (the same goes for opposite-sex couples). The drivers and accommodations we work with are professional and welcoming when working with LGB clients and are devoted only to creating a positive experience in Morocco. Fun fact: two men holding hands while walking in public isn’t unusual and is only a sign of deep friendship or family bond. However, trans-travelers may experience harassment and, in some cases, physical violence.

NO! And don’t try. They may appear tame and even take fruit from your hand, but they’re wild animals with a mouth full of razor blades and a massive inferiority complex. If you want to pose for a picture with a Barbary Ape, go to the Jemaa el-Fnaa Square in Marrakech and negotiate a price with the handlers before posing for pictures.
