Morocco

Known as the gateway to Africa, Morocco is a country filled with diversity, culture, charm and adventure.

From breathtaking mountain ranges, sweeping Saharan deserts, rugged coastlines and ancient cities, Morocco couldn't be more tailor-made to the adventure traveller. With most activities being within close proximity, you can tackle the epic Atlas Mountains or conquer the Tizi-n-Test pass one day and ride camels through golden dunes, swim through forest-clad waterfalls or camp under the starry night's sky the next.

Being influenced by both Arabic and European cultures, Morocco's cities are some of the most beautiful and exciting on the planet. Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Fez (UNESCO heritage site), snake through the great labyrinths of theatrical spice markets in Marrakesh, explore the blue-wash streets of Chefchaouen or enjoy the surfing paradise of the charming Essaouira.

It goes without saying that Morocco may just be the most enchanting country on the continent.

Our Personal Travel Experts know Morocco really well. If you want to find out more about their ancient cities, rolling dunes or mountain summits, get in touch with one of our experts and we’ll tailor your perfect holiday.

Fact Sheet

When to Travel

Due to its subtropical climate, Morocco is great all year round. However, it must be said that April and May, and September to November are best times to travel as the weather is cooler and it is generally less busy.

If you are looking to trek the Atlas Mountains, we would recommend you hiking over the Spring period.

Those wanting to head to the Sahara, we would only advice against visiting during the summer months, as temperatures can reach over 45 degrees and the weather in April often causes sandstorms.

Please note that Morocco is a Muslim country, therefore, be aware that during Ramadan you may find it difficult to buy food and drink in the smaller towns and villages (although this wont be a problem in larger towns and cities).

Visa

If you're a UK, US or EU citizen you do not need a visa to visit Morocco for up to 90 days. We recommend all others to check with their local embassy.

When entering the country, make sure your passport is stamped. Some tourists have experienced difficulties leaving the country because their passport bears no entry stamp.

For up to date advice, check the Foreign travel advice website.

Health

We highly recommend that you do not drink the tap water in Morocco. Therefore it is essential that you bring a reusable water bottle and ask your hotel/resturant if you can fill it up with filtered water.

Additionally, avoid eating any fruit or veg that has not already been peeled or cooked, and always carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer when in the mountains or desert regions.

Some vaccinations may be required to enter Morocco. As such, it is very important to check with your GP before travelling. Your GP will be able to provide you with all up to date travel information and will give you updates if regulation changes.

Travel Restrictions & Covid-19

UK Citizens: As it stands, travelers arriving from or transiting through United Kingdom are not allowed to enter Morocco. All flights to and from these countries have been suspended.

For those who can travel to Morocco:

Travelers must have a printed negative COVID-19 PCR test result. The test must be taken within 72 hours before departure to Morocco. The test result must be in Arabic, French, or English.

Travellers are required to complete a public health passenger form before departure to Morocco. The form must be printed and presented on arrival.

Travellers must wear masks in public places such as on public transportation.

Travellers are not required to quarantine on arrival in Morocco.
