Welcome to
Morocco

A melting pot of African, Islamic, European and indigenous Berber influences, Morocco's charm lies in its diversity.  For sun-worshippers there are miles of golden beaches, while inland lies Berber country, where among the snow-capped Atlas Mountains the energetic can walk or trek. Beyond the mountains are the fringes of the Sahara, where caravans once stopped on their way south to trade in spices and ivory.  In the cities are magnificent palaces, mosques, gardens and souks.  This is the magic of Morocco, whether climbing distant ridges, relaxing by the sea, haggling for exotic artifacts, gazing at ancient wonders or marveling at the pink and indigo desert dawn, you will be mesmerized.

Meknes
MeknesThis centre of Berber culture and learning, occupies a plateau overlooking the Boufekrane River.  In the 17th century, Moulay Ismail, the Sultan, singled out Meknes and set out to make it the most fabulous of the imperial capitals.  Palaces, mosques, gardens, lakes, granaries and stables were built over a 50 year period and yet the dream city surrounded by a massive rampart wall was never finished.  Set in the walls are exquisite gates including the Bab Mansour, considered to be one of the most beautiful gates in North Africa.
