Morocco is great to visit at any time of year and Ramadan is no exception, but we ask our guests to understand that service may not be as good as normal when people are hungry and thirsty, and local Moroccan staff may have to fit customer services around their fasting routine.
The International Festival of Nomads takes place in the open air, right on the edge of the enormous expanses of the Sahara desert. While the event is based around music, it offers all sorts of arts, giving the curious visitor the chance to learn about dance, crafts and poetry of the nomadic peoples.
We believe in minimising the negative social, economic and environmental impacts of tourism and strive to generate greater economic benefits for local people and enhance the well-being of the communities we visit whilst still providing a positive and rewarding experience for our customers.
