Moroccan Cities and Desert
Travel to Morocco and explore a land filled with Arabic, African, and European influences. Students arrive through the famed city of Casablanca and from there visit different cities and areas of this dynamic country.
The itinerary includes varying cultural activities such as meandering through the medina (ancient walled city) of Fes, Morocco's largest open-air market, scattered among twisting alleys. Ride 4x4s through the desert to your campsite for an evening of traditional Moroccan festivities and cuisine. Sleep in Berber tents under a star-filled sky and awake to witness the sun rise over the sand dunes that surround you as far as the eye can see. Ride atop a camel's back into the desert city of Merzouga where you will learn about the local way of life. After the journey in the desert, students visit Meknès, the Versailles of Morocco, before ending this 5-day eye-opening adventure.
