Morocco is a rich blend of African, Arab and European cultures. Only 15km from the south of Spain, Morocco is so close to Europe and yet feels so very far away. Morocco gives every visitor a glimpse into its culture and history. Venture further from the main tourist centres and you’ll experience Moroccan landscape as diverse as its past. With mountains in the north and east, the Sahara Desert to the south and its rugged coastline to the west, Morocco is a destination perfect for independent travellers and ever popular with overlanders and van dwellers.
