I have always loved the
desert, said the little prince.
You sit on a sandy dune.
You see nothing, you hear
And meanwhile something gleams
in the silence.
Antoine de Saint Exupéry
Morocco, fabulous fairyland and unknown kingdom! From
here, in the 8th Century, the Moorish
conquest wave grabbed over Spain.
An unexplored and closed up country, a few centuries ago, where many Jews lived among Arabs, Moors and Berbers, but Christians were barely tolerated.
Today, however, we experience at any of our trips the exact opposite: in almost any other North African country and we feel included so friendly and unobtrusive welcome as here!
Morocco also is undoubtedly one of the kindest scenic
countries in the world with a wealth of
variety, seeking his own kind! Some landscapes reminiscent of Iceland volcanic mountains black, to the other Mediterranean Sardinia with granite rocks and green vegetation, others even like Central European mountains with green hills and forests. And,not to forget, the diverse desert landscapes: red and black stone desert, brown, and white scree, golden and red sandy deserts with high dunes, sand dunes, Queds and much more - a diversity that is simply impossible to describe, you just have to have seen it!
Our tour starts in the port Tanger Med, where we first have to endure amused the seemingly chaotic entry procedure and after that, we will have our joy with the Moroccan fuel prices. Then it's finally going south!
Our goal is to Fez, the oldest of the four royal cities. This enchanting, Oriental lively city attracts us immidiately and at a Dinner in one of the most beautiful old merchant houses we feel truly back in the tale of 1ooo1 nights! After a night in a comfortable hotel and a rich breakfast buffet, which leaves nothing to be desired, we will go for a stroll through the bustling labyrinth of the old town, where we can experience authentic and true craftsmanship and market life a hundred years ago.
Then it draws us further into the peace and quiet of the fantastic slopes over the middle and high Atlas and we head towards the sandy south near the Algerian border. Stony gravel roads or deep sandy stretches along the dunes challenge our driving skills. Sunsets with impressive play of colours indemnify us abundantly for the jolting and the one time or another free blades.
Then we go on, on partly challenging slopes towards the mountains, with two wildly romantic gorges with spectacular views into the canyon, abandoned Kasbahs and settlements of red clay buildings lie high above the river and its oases.
After leaving the mountains, the route takes us back to the east.
Marrakech, the "Pearl of the Orient", the "Red City", formerly was a storage place for caravans We explore the vast souks and tanners, potters, visit magnificent former residences and Pasha Djemaa el Fna, stroll over the the place of the beheaded with his Jugglers, snake charmers and steaming food stalls.
In a nice hotel we have again the opportunity to enjoy all the amenities of civilization to the full!
Slowly, our route takes us back towards the Mediterranean and ferry and we have to say goodbye to this stunningly beautiful country.
Especially the nights in "Hotel of 1000 Stars" under the desert sky, among the experiences that they will last a lifetime not
forget - as an Arab proverb tells us: "What can a man wish for more than the
privilege of every night sleep under a sheltering sky, a sky dotted with millions of stars that illuminate to enlighten his dreams about? The desert appears eternal to those, which inhabit it and represent eternity to those, who know how to indulge in it. "
