The Kingdom of Morocco is situated in the north of Africa,
just a short hop away from the south of Spain and mainland Europe. Its
proximity to Europe is why Morocco is sometimes confused as being a European
country. Although Morocco has been influenced by French and Spanish
colonisation, this vibrant and thriving country has Arab and Berber roots which
make it a intriguing place to visit.
Morocco sits on the north western tip of Africa, flanked by
the Sahara Desert to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, effectively
cutting it off from much of the rest of the continent. To the north is the
Mediterranean Sea and arriving here by ferry crosses the Gibraltar Strait, the
narrow stretch between Tangier in the north of Morocco and Algeciras in the
south of Spain.
Perhaps most famous for its busy souks, mint tea and the
busy city of Marrakesh, Morocco welcomes visitors from all over the world who
come to explore the ancient markets and unique culture here. The capital of Morocco
is Rabat, with is on the middle eastern coast and other major cities include
Casablanca, Agadir, Fes and Tangier. The main airport for international flights
to Morocco is Casablanca but US and UK visitors can fly to other regional
airports including Marrakesh.
The terrain in Morocco is hugely varied with long stretches
of coastline to the west and sprawling desert to the east. In between, the
ridge of mountains known as the Atlas Mountains rise above, home to a wide variety
of mountain wildlife. The biodiversity here is immense and nature lovers will
enjoy the flora, fauna and indigenous wildlife that can be spotted across the
alternating landscapes. The High Atlas Mountains Morocco contain various high
peaks over 4000m offering incredible opportunities for hiking in Morocco.
