Safaris and the Sahara Desert

Spread the love

If you’re like a lot of people, you’re not going to go to Africa and not go on safari. The Moroccan Sahara is home to some of the most picturesque landscapes in Africa, as well as a few iconic spots in the desert. You can find safaris that are weeks-long or just an overnight stay. You can explore more remote parts of the Sahara Desert as well as more popular places that won’t disappoint.

The Sahara is a big place and Morocco is in just a small part of it, but the country has a mystique all its own from the coast to the famous cities of Casablanca and Marrakesh, the /ma href=”,+Spain/@28.4422854,-20.3363615,6z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0xc41aa86ef755363:0x10340f3be4bc8c0!8m2!3d28.2915637!4d-16.6291304″>Canary Islands (even those this is a Spanish Province), there are tons of things to see and do in this relatively small country.

Just like a cruise is ideal for Norway because you can get to hard to reach places all through the wonderment of their fjords, a safari is the best way to see Morocco, as the country is small enough to experience nearly all of it. Two to three weeks here and you can touch on the major plot points of this country.

Here are some Top Ten Must Sees (at least according to Social Bubble) in Morocco:

Here are some companies we recommend for deep Moroccan immersion:

Rothschild. While they do safaris all over Africa and other parts of the world, their Morocco Safaris are deep and diverse and truly plugged into the rhythm of the country. They also won best safari outfitter this year with Travel and Leisure, which is no small thing.

Micato. Also a multiple winner from T&L, they mainly work in east and southern Africa, but they no doubt can dial up something special for any family for Morocco.

Natural High. They have many travel experts, just like Rothschild, who vet each experience and recommend only what they have used. A very solid and scrappy group. Mainly for the budget-conscious safari traveler.

Our Advice. Just like everything else, things change. Sometimes there’s a skirmish on the news and people don’t visit for a while. Sometimes a celebrity is photographed here and it gets hot. During these ebbs and flows, new outfitters come up and old ones shrivel. It’s hard to keep up with each one. We are more than happy to provide feedback on any of them if they are not from the above. We like the above because we know someone there or they have been around long enough that we know they have stood the test of time.
