Overview

Book
This superb family adventure holiday treks for 5 days along the coast of Morocco between Agadir and Essaouira. This stretch of the Atlantic is wild, dramatic, remote and beautiful. Camping out amongst the dunes, we enjoy ever-changing views of headlands, cliffs and endless fine sand beaches. Travelling with a team of camels and their colourful drivers, and visiting villages en route this family adventure holiday is a cultural experience as much as it is a real adventure for youngsters and parents alike. Most afternoons are free for swimming and beach games, or simply for relaxing.

The holiday ends in the ancient and beautiful port of Essaouira which is a fascinating walled city where cannons still point out to sea - a reminder of the days when pirates and other raiders threatened this part of the African coast. Inside the walls of the city there is a wealth of shops and souks selling colourful djelabas and carpets, aromatic oils and spices, and hand crafted lamps and toys. Just outside the city, Essaouira's light sandy beach is becoming a famous destination for wind surfing and kite surfing enthusiasts. The holiday begins and ends in magical Marrakech which never fails to entertain both young and old. This is a simply superb family holiday offering a different perspective on Morocco.

Is this holiday for you?

Suitable for children from 6yrs old

This is a family adventure camping holiday, with camels carrying all of our equipment. During each day's walk you need only carry what you require that day. The itinerary has been specifically designed with children in mind. The holiday involves coastal walking with some short ascents and descents on a variety of terrain from mule tracks to sand dunes, cliff top paths, and sandy beaches. We will be actually walking for up to 5 hours each day at an easy pace. There will be time for stops and more importantly swimming! It can be hot during the middle of the day, though a cooling breeze from the sea often ameliorates this. Lunch is always taken in the shade of a tree and we can cool off in the sea. If necessary, we can arrange for tired, small individuals to be carried by camels for parts of the day's walk. The guide will speak both English and French, and the group may include both English and French families.

Important Note:The child price age for this holiday is 6 - 18 years

We found you extremely helpful and easy to deal with. We loved every aspect of the holiday and don't have a single complaint. Hamid was an exceptional leader. He was courteous, kind, lovely to our children and very respectful towards his whole crew, who were all incredibly hard-working and sociable. We felt that everyone tried their very best to make our holiday a truly memorable experience. We were very sad to say goodbye to our new friends. This was a very special family holiday. We have treasure memories of our time in Morocco and we would certainly consider booking another holiday with you in the future Most Enjoyed the company of our crew and leader, the wonderful food, the sense of adventure and the incredible scenery.

Being on the coast was the best for us. William enjoyed riding a camel at every opportunity and our daughter Elizabeth enjoyed the souks in Marrakech once she got the feel for it. Seeing Marrakech and Essouira 20 years after I last went there was most interesting as well.

Our guide, was amazing, he rolled with all the punches and was always making the needs and safety of the children his priority, and of course the adults too. We felt 100 percent safe with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. This was a great adventure for all of us.

Our leader was absolutely fantastic. He was always happy, very friendly and entertaining, ready to answer all our questions and joking and laughing with us, our children, and the crew. I think he did much more to make sure that everybody was happy, than his job requires, he was the most excellent host. We do miss seeing his kind and happy face already. We really enjoyed this holiday, we loved the company of our fellow travellers and the trek crew, actually I would be happy to go back tomorrow and do it all over again, if I could. Excellent. My children, Rachel 12 and Hanna 11, loved the trip so much, that the were actually quite sad to be coming home. They had a lot of fun, loved riding the camels, loved the camping, and of course the guide.

Our guide was the 'star of the show' and turned a good holiday into an excellent one. His manner throughout was exceptional; he was always very informative and gauged our group very well. He was excellent with our children (who thought he was 'so cool') and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. Well organised and led. The scenery was outstanding with the option to swim every day in the sea at the end of a hot day's walking. The camels gave the trip an 'exotic' flavour. The in-country team were all first class. The Essouira day is a good cap to the walking part. Seeing the culture for the children (including some of the less attractive bits) was a great education for them.

We most enjoyed the unspoilt coastal scenery, trekking with camels, white-water rafting (add-on) and the company of other families and children of similar ages to our son. The walking was a little longer than expected and the facilities a bit more basic than anticipated. Hamid (our guide) was fantastic with the children. He engaged with them and seemed to genuinely enjoy being with them.

The week was an experience that myself and my two sons will remember forever. We met some truly wonderful people and had experiences that we would never have had. The local moroccan people are lovely and we really enjoyed living in a musilm country for the eight days. I'm glad the trek went wrong because the experiences we had as a result of the rain were awesome. (But we were really enjoying the trekking and camping too.) Hamid ensured that despite the rain, we had fun.I enjoyed the mix between camping and hotels: the friendliness and company of Hamid and his team: the country with its ethos and beauty: Marrakech,the guided tour and the extra day to explore by ourselves: the beautiful beaches and long walks: the camels: the music and dancing by the guide and his team to cheer us up in the rain: the ease by which you made a Moroccan adventure possible and safe.I expected it to be good, but it was outstanding. we lived through experiences that we will remember forever. THANKYOU I felt completely supported by all the correspondence and the telephone calls before the holiday. The pre-trip information was extremely accurate and very useful. I can't give enough praise for Hamid and his team. They were brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! The rain changed the programme but Hamid and his team made it the best week ever!!

Our guide did a great job of leader in a respects - from the day-to-day logistics of operating a trek to the care of the group and support staff. Everything seemed to run smoothly and service impeccable . He was super good with the kids, playful and eager to amuse them and always present to converse with the adults. Our four-person trekking crew worked together in performing their own duties and helping each other to get the job done as well as being friendly with the clients and the children. I felt the length of the 5-day trek and the length of each walking day perfect for the age group. Walking was nicely broken up with plenty of playtime in the water to keep the kids cool and delighted.
