DAY 02:

Marrakech

This morning after breakfast, Start off with a guided walk around the medina then do as much or as little as you want during your time here. Lounge in the pool to escape the daytime heat or get out and about to explore. Enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal with some of our local friends tonight. A great place to start exploring is Djemaa el Fna square, the heart of Marrakech, that changes its offerings throughout the day. In the morning you’ll wander past the fresh orange juice stalls, water sellers in colourful costumes with traditional leather water bags and brass cups, and snake charmers reminiscent of an era past.As the day progresses the snake charmers are replaced by Chleuh dancing boys, storytellers, magicians, and peddlers of traditional medicines. As the sun sets, the square fills with dozens of food-stalls, packed with locals and the entertaining chefs and waiters. Grab a spot on a bench with the other diners and try the Tanjia (slow cooked lamb), Harira soup, grilled seafood, famous Moroccan couscous, tajine, snails or even sheep’s head for the truly adventurous, and wash it all down with some spiced tea.To really get a taste of everyday life in Marrakech, head into the maze of tiny streets and alleyways of the ancient medina. Tourists and locals alike will find everything they desire in the souks, whether it’s spices, traditional jalabas and slippers, or famous Moroccan lanterns, the selection here is exhaustive. Don’t forget to bargain; it's definitely part of the fun!For history and architecture buffs, Marrakech is sure to dazzle. The Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, Ben Youseff Medersa and Almovid Koubba are all easy to get to and well worth a visit.Once you’ve tired yourself out, relax at one of the tea houses around the square, indulging in the ubiquitous sweet mint tea, watching the hustle and bustle from your shady spot.

DAY 03:

Sidi Kaouki

After breakfast, Continuing our journey through Morocco, its up along the coast from Tafraoute to the village of Sidi Kaouki. This relaxed Berber village is a world away from Morocco's bustling cities, and all the better for it. You may want to linger on the great beach here, but we have a date with our camels today. Hopping onto camel back, we take off for a ride along the beach. These ships of the desert are noble creatures who carry us along the sandy expanse of the beach, past the whitewashed walls of the villages to our camp, where we spend the night. Sleeping out under canvas or, if you prefer, under stars in this peaceful beach location is a great way to unwind after a day on camelback.
