Exploring Morocco's Southern Loop

A self-drive tour through Morocco is the ideal choice for adventurers who prefer to explore their chosen destination at leisure rather than as part of an organized tour group.

There are numerous self-drive tours to choose from, one of which is the Southern Loop Tour, starting and ending in Marrakech and incorporating the spectacular Atlas mountain range and magnificent Dades, Tafilalet and Draa valleys. The roads along the route are of good quality and a variety of accommodation options are available.

Escape to Sidi Kaouki

There is a town near to the cities of Essaouira and Agadir in Morocco that will captivate the imagination of visitors. It was named after a holy man, who some refer to as a teacher, who used to wander the land.
