Introducing Morocco

Morocco is a vast country, extending from its Mediterranean shores in the north to the desert wonderland of the Sahara in the south. Spend an afternoon sipping tea on a Marrakech rooftop, take a camel ride through the desert, or hike in the snow-topped High Atlas mountains; whatever you choose, you'll love experiencing everything Morocco has to offer. 

Where should I go in Morocco?
From the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and Fes to photogenic Chefchaouen and the dunes of the Sahara Desert, Morocco has an incredibly diverse blend of geography, climate, and culture. Each region has its own unique array of activities for travelers to choose from, as well as specific weather patterns to be aware of. Learn more

When is the best time to visit? 
Morocco is a year-round destination, though each of its regions has an ideal time to go. Tangier in northern Morocco, for example, has a pleasant Mediterranean climate year-round, while travelers interested in experiencing the Sahara will want to stick to a trip in Spring or Fall to avoid extreme temperatures. Learn more

Things to Do in Morocco
 
Morocco is full of opportunities for both adventure and relaxation. Take a kitesurfing lesson on the Atlantic Coast, go mountain biking in the High Atlas mountains, or spend a day shopping for rugs and antiques in the fantastic markets of Marrakech. Learn more

How many days do I need in Morocco?
7-10 days is a solid amount of time to explore Morocco's and Imperial cities at a moderate pace. With 2 weeks you can spend time hiking in the Atlas Mountains or explore the coast. With under 1 week, it's best to focus your time: explore Casablanca, Chefchaouen, and Fes in the north, or discover Berber traditions in Marrakech & the Sahara desert. Learn more

Getting around Morocco
Private driver-guides are the best way to travel around Morocco, offering travelers both flexibility and peace of mind. Trains and buses connect the larger cities such as Casablanca, Fes, and Marrakech, while the desert area, Atlas mountains, and coastal towns are best accessed as part of a private tour or day trips.

We, like so many people, had a lot of wanderlust built up from the pandemic years. We also had a few family milestones come up this year. So we wanted a really special trip and we let our graduating high school senior pick the destination -- Morocco. That was the full extent of our ability to plan. We didn't want to be on a big all-inclusive tour, but neither could we manage a fully independently-planned itinerary.

Kimkim came to the rescue!

Our local specialist team planned a fantastic and varied itinerary (Sea, Rif Mountains, Imperial Cities, Sahara, Atlas Mountains) for us, complete with private van transportation between places. I so appreciated that they took the initiative to mock up a plan, including accommodations, based on some initial feedback about our traveling style and objectives, and then were able to adjust and fine tune (that's too fancy! not enough time here, too much history/serious stuff, more camels! etc.) to craft us a trip that everybody was excited about (we have 4 boys 11-19) and which made good use of our time there to see a little bit of everything. It was so nice to be able to just relax into the rhythm of the trip once we got on the plane, vs scrambling to arrange the next place, transportation, etc.

Mike Tyson famously said, "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth." The plan was fantastic. Our punch in the mouth came when a member of our group became ill in Fes one week into our trip. With four boys in tow and myself being the only person who could communicate in a language other than English, we would have been completely overwhelmed had we not had the amazing support from Abdellah and his local team. They rearranged the remainder of our trip, helped secure medical care, made sure the boys were still amused during our extended stay in one of our stops, in short, did all the heavy lifting needed so that we could continue on safely and with a minimum of stress, and maintained all the must-keeps (camels, camels and camels) from our itinerary despite the changes.

Abdellah and his team made us feel truly cared for and the guides they arranged, especially in Chefchaouen and Essaouira, seemed personally invested in showcasing the best and most interesting parts of their cities.

We went to Morocco knowing that it would be the trip of a lifetime but assuming that we would keep exploring new places after that; we now know there is so much more to explore there and plan to return!

Hotel Reviews
Riad Madu
Merzouga

This hotel on the edge of the Sahara desert was a totally magical experience. We'd had a long day on the road to get there and arrived in the early evening. The temperature was around 110. The boys rolled out of the car and the hotel staff, knowing exactly what they needed, showed them directly to the pool. The pool deck was supervised by a very charismatic sheepdog whom the boys immediately fell in love with. Everything about the hotel is beautiful and the dinner was excellent.

Our driver Ilyas was an absolute pleasure. We spent over a week driving around with him exploring Morocco. He was the perfect mix of a great guide as well as a fun and interesting person to hang out with. The bookings made by Mohamed and the Kimkim team made our journey easy and maximized our time. Thoroughly recommend this entire process for those looking to explore the kingdom of Morocco.

Hi - I totally recommend KimKim in Morocco for organizing your next trip. Our experience has been fantastic! The planning process - ahead of the trip - was a smooth ride. I continued to make quite a lot of changes to the itinerary, but Abdel and Said (with whom I communicated online via the kimkim website) remained calm and patient, and provided speedy and thoughtful answers to all my requests and questions.
Then, during the trip itself, we remained in touch with Said (via Whatsapp) to make small tweaks along the way. And also during that time Said was amazingly responsive and action-oriented.
The trip itself was glorious, because Morocco has a lot to offer. We are a family with 4 teenage kids (i.e.: sometimes hard to please!), and they all loved the surprising activities, beautiful hotels, impressive landscapes, the mix of cultures, and the great Moroccon food.
Also, the Kimkim team and I ensured we had sufficient variety in the program, and that we also had some downtime - during which we couldn't still anyway and organized a few optional activities ourselves (e.g. hammams, cooking class). :-)
Also a shoutout to Samir, our driver from Original Travels.!
In conclusion: What an amazing trip it was!
Will definitely use KimKim for a possible following trip in another country.
