Africa Destination | Morocco
Key Points for Planners
- Morocco offers an exotic, less-traveled alternative to popular mainstream destinations that is both safe and easy to reach from Europe or the Americas
- Even though it’s a relatively new MICE hotspot, there is infrastructure to deliver exceptional experiences for even the most discerning of groups.
- From traditional riads (i.e., smaller guesthouses) to premium hotels and rustic to luxury tent camps in the Sahara, Morocco offers a unique and exciting variety of accommodations.
- Morocco is growing rapidly to become the leading tourism destination in the region.
- The International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) named Marrakesh the best golf destination in Africa and the Gulf region.
When you close your eyes and imagine a meeting or incentive travel in Morocco, what do you see? A camel caravan crossing the sands of the Sahara? A luxury tent in a desert encampment under the twinkling light of a billion stars? Do you see the storied souks of Marrakesh? The striking blue-washed buildings of Chefchaouen? Morocco, a unique destination for group travel, offers all these amazing experiences and more!
- Mergouza, Gateway to the Sahara Desert
Exotic Morocco is awash with vibrant colors. Its Berber rugs are legendary. And its landscapes are stunning. Everywhere you look, there’s juxtaposition of old and new—goatherds herding their flocks through the middle of the street while Moroccans speed by on scooters; ornate hundreds-year-old mosques next to modern buildings; djellaba-clad merchants selling their wares to Moroccans dressed in the latest European fashions. The contrasts are fascinating and lend an air of adventure to each day.
From traditional riads (aka guesthouses) to iconic five-star
hotels and luxury desert camps (read: modern in-tent bathrooms!), Morocco offers comfortable accommodations wherever you choose to roam. And its traditional cuisine—meat or vegetable tagines and couscous brimming with fresh dates and olives—is a staple everywhere, with larger cities offering a wide range of other cuisines as well.
In addition to its delicious cuisine, Marrakesh offers everything you’d expect in a travel mecca—incredible shopping, gorgeous vistas, museums, nightlife, and music. Don’t miss touring the electric-blue Majorelle Gardens, shopping the souks in the
old medina, or sipping traditional Moroccan mint tea at a picturesque café.
Other can’t miss Moroccan experiences include: Road-tripping through the Draa Valley. Spending a night camping (or glamping) in the Sahara Desert. Or enjoying fresh fish in the seaside town of Essaouira. Wherever you choose to go in Morocco, you will be met with local experts who are proud of their country and will delight in showing you all it has to offer.
