If you are looking for what to do in Morocco on vacation, this is the place for you.
We propose the seven top plans you can sign up for to immerse yourself in its culture, enjoy nature, stimulate your senses, and have life experiences reserved for getaways with character.
Are we going with those plans to do in Morocco?
#1 Watching and admiring the night sky of the Moroccan desert
Yes, we start strong: for one of the star adventures (sorry for the easy joke) of Kam Kam Dunes.
But we are not shy to put this plan as the first one to do in Morocco because we know that it is an experience that never disappoints.
Climbing a huge dune at sunset to contemplate the transformation of its chromatic play until night falls, savoring the silence of the Erg Chebbi desert, and having an expert give you some tips to understand the firmament… PLAN-OF-THE-CENTURY
#2 Morocco desert tour on the back of… A camel!
As you can hear: a camel ride is an unforgettable experience you can have in Morocco.
To enjoy it to the fullest, just pay attention to:
- Make sure they are well cared for camels, like those of Kam Kam Dunes, who are like family.
- Relax and let yourself be carried away by their movements.
- Absorb all that you can see from above.
And with this, you only have to choose what time you want to live the adventure.
#3 Getting lost in a medina
Undoubtedly, one of the plans to do in Morocco is to wander through one of its medinas. And get lost. Yes get lost, because they are like a labyrinth and sometimes you do not recognize anything around you.
And you don’t know how, but suddenly you find your place again. That’s part of its charm!
Which Moroccan medinas do we recommend?
Obviously, Marrakech, the Red City, is not to be missed for the variety of products offered by its hundreds of stalls scattered throughout its structure of alleys.
If you want something less “obvious” and you are lucky enough to visit other Moroccan cities, Fez and Chefchaouen are also special; the former because it is the largest in the world and the latter because it is dominated by their characteristic shade of blue.
And if you go in Ramadan do not miss them at night, when the locals go out to eat and there is a very authentic atmosphere.
#4 Take a gastronomic tour of the medina of Fez
If there is an element that makes a trip around is the typical food of each territory we visit, so in this list of top plans to do in Morocco can not miss one that makes you enjoy Moroccan cuisine in all its splendor.
And that plan is to take a tour of the medina of Fez to taste the tastiest Moroccan dishes.
Moroccan cuisine is a sum of the influences of all the civilizations that have inhabited the country, from the Berbers to the Arabs, passing through the French, Turks, Jews…
Be warned, if you are a bit picky about food, this may not be your favorite thing to do in Morocco. But if you can get rid of those prejudices you bring from home, we assure you that this can be one of the experiences of your life.
Bread, various stews loaded with spices, couscous, homemade sweets, and many other delicacies await you in a setting with aromas that make you disconnect from everything.
#5 Hiking in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco
And speaking of disconnecting, there is another super plan to do in Morocco: a hike in the High Atlas.
As saying that is like saying nothing because the High Atlas crosses the country and is about 1,000 kilometers long, we recommend that you combine the car with stretches on foot through the Dades Gorges, a sinuous work of erosion that leaves you with your mouth open.
This activity is included in many of our tours because it is a great opportunity to experience something new and exciting, observe up close how diverse Moroccan nature is, and learn about the history and traditions of the Berber people.
#6 Immerse yourself in the most literary Tangier
Let’s go with a cultural plan to do in Morocco, let it not be said that here there is not for all tastes.
Like all cross-border cities, throughout its history, Tangier has received inhabitants from different origins in search of shelter, as happened when the Second World War broke out.
How could it not inspire novels of all kinds?
That is precisely the plan we propose: that you look for the Tangier of Paul Bowles, Truman Capote, Ángel Vázquez, or Ramón Buenaventura, that one with an international flavor regardless of the rules of the political situation.
#7 Excursion to an oasis
Did you know that Morocco is home to some of the largest oases in the world?
We propose the SafSaf Oasis, one of the least traveled and unexpected and you can go from the desert. In fact, we offer it to our guests because it is one of the most exotic things to do in Morocco for the beauty of the place, but also for the sense of adventure along the way.
To get there from Kam Kam Dunes, you take the Dakar rally road, encountering nomadic villages along the way until you reach the border with Algeria, where the oasis with its palm trees and waterfalls is located.
It is surprising that in the middle of the arid desert, this habitat can coexist.
And so far this list of things to do in Morocco is for those who like to get off the beaten path, get to know the essence of the countries they visit, and live fulfilling experiences.
Well, we would have to sleep in the middle of the desert in a Berber tent.
But not just anyone, but one like the Kam Kam Dunes, which are made in the traditional way, decorated in a boho chic style, with their own bathroom and comfortable beds with top quality linens.
