TRIP TIPS

tips image

Taking Photos

Always ask when snapping pictures of the locals, especially in the rural areas. Pairing with a complement often helps or take from distance and utilise your zoom.

tips image

Touts and Hustlers

In general Morocco is very safe so relax and smile when dealing with touts and hustlers. Politely, but firmly decline, don’t engage and act as if you know where you are going.

tips image

Cover up

Whilst locals are used to tourists, it is respectful to cover up your knees and shoulders, so make sure you have a scarf, which will also help against the sun and sand while in the desert.

tips image

Pack warm clothes

The desert conjures up images of searing heat and baking hot sun, but once the sun sets then temperatures can really plummet to below zero so be sure to pack some warm clothes.
