Morocco - The African Connection


When people think Morocco the first thing that comes to mind for many of them is desert and good food, this however is only the tip of the iceberg where African safari packages in Morocco are concerned. The Moroccan landscape is vastly contrasting and provides a beautifully rugged playground for the adventure enthusiast. This is not to say that Morocco does not provide the ultimate in luxury and relaxation, the good food for which it is famous can be enjoyed in the numerous hotels and resorts that dot the coastlines. When it comes to African holiday accommodation Morocco provides some the best on the continent, it is the perfect holiday destination for most types of people looking for African safari packages or just a beautiful place to relax and explore a culture.

Whether it's a serene hot air balloonride over the desert or a 4x4 adventure in the Atlas mountain range or simply relaxing in the Kasbah of Casablanca with a plate of local tagine you can be sure to find something that will tickle your fancy. Adventure holidays in Morocco have become a popular option for those in the United Kingdom looking for African safari packages due to its proximity to Europe yet vastly different culture and climate.

The Sahara desert that borders Morocco provides an endless supply of adventurous activities as well as some more relaxing memory creating pass times. Few people can resist the romance of a camel ride through the desert, to recreate that Laurence of Arabia experience. A trip into the desert on a camel to a traditional campsite, where you'll enjoy traditional Moroccan cuisine and camp under the stars is perhaps the best way to experience true Moroccan hospitality and culture. African holiday accommodation doesn't come any more authentic than this.

If you want something to get the heart racing then canyoning in the Ourika Valley might be just what you're looking for. Canyoning involves abseiling down the steep gorges of the Ourika River Valley and this is no dry river bed. It an adrenalin-pumping yet awe inspiring experience and should not be taken on lightly.

Morocco's climate lends itself to a day spent splashing around in rivers and been drenched by waterfalls. If you're looking for some adventure in Africa, travel doesn't get any more unique or exciting than this.
Alternatively for an adventure with a difference try a 4x4 tour of the Atlas Mountain range. This historic mountain range played a significant part in the myths and legends of the ancient world. It was believed that world rested on the shoulders of the God Atlas, this massive mountain range, it was believed, was where the world rested. Driving along these rugged mountain roads can be a bone rattling experience.

For something equally bone rattling but slightly wetter you can try white water rafting in either the Ourika River or the Ahansal River. Nothing will make your African safari package holiday an adrenalin adventure to remember quite like a day spent shooting through the rapids of a fast flowing river. Morocco is certainly one of the jewels of Africa, travel to this amazing country and you will be left with memories that will last a lifetime.
