How to get there

Direct flights are available from cities across Europe, the Middle East, West Africa and North America to Marrakech Menara Airport and other airports throughout Morocco. Upon request we can arrange the flight for you.

Passport and visas

Travellers are responsible for their own valid travelling documents.

All people travelling to Morocco need to have a passport that is valid until at least 6 months after leaving Morocco.

EU and British citizens, Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians and Americans do not require a visa to visit Morocco for stays up to 90 days. All other nationalities should check with the Moroccan Embassy or Consulate in their country for up-to-date visa information.

Money

The currency of Morocco is the dirham (MAD), divided into 100 centimes. Changing money is easy and you will find banks and exchange bureaux in Casablanca, Fes and Marrakech, however, please note Australian dollars are not always accepted.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are not obliged by the Moroccan government. Check you local physician and bring along the travel route to check if vaccinations are required for you.

Packing

Most travellers carry their luggage in a backpack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice if you travel lightly. Smaller bags or backpacks with wheels are convenient although we recommend your bag has carry straps. You’ll also need a day pack/bag to carry water and a camera etc for day trips.

SLEEPING BAGS
In the winter months (from November to March) there may not be enough heating (sometimes none) or sufficient blankets to keep everyone warm, we recommend bringing your own sleeping bag.

Clothing

Because the climate in Morocco can vary, especially in the mountains; where the nights can be cold and it will be warm during daytime, we recommend to wear different layers of clothes. And for the hiking trips; don’t forget to bring your hiking shoes!

Morocco is an islamic country, and although Moroccans in the big cities can be very liberal, it is highly appreciated -especially in the rural areas -if you cover your shoulders and your knees. This is applicable for both men and women.

The summers can be very hot. Don’t forget to bring a hat or something to cover your head. Or buy a scarf in the souks of Marrakech.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for all our trips. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
