What To Expect
MT Sobek: Morocco Camels & Casbahs Hiking

Reason #01

MT Sobek has been exploring Morocco since 1975 so you're in perfect hands on this unique journey.

Reason #02

You'll discover Morocco's ancient cities, cultural hubs and Saharan dunes with professional guides who offer rich insights.

Reason #03

The camel trekking adventure takes in some of Morocco's most remote and spectacular desert landscapes.

Activities

Hikes and camel treks paired with scenic desert drives, traditional market visits, and rich history and culture tours.

Lodging

Upscale city hotels, enchanting riad retreats, charming guesthouses, and MT Sobek mobile camps in the desert.

Climate

The climate is moderate and subtropical, cooled by breezes off the Atlantic and Mediterranean. In the interior the temperatures are more extreme, with cold winters and hot summers.

What clothing is appropriate in Morocco?

Plan to dress conservatively. We suggest covering shoulders, knees, and wearing loose fitting clothing.

What’s the best time of year for this adventure?

Because the desert can get quite warm in summer, the best time for a camel trek is from October to November and March. The weather is pleasant and there are fewer crowds.

What is food like in Morocco?

Moroccan cuisines is often a fusion of berber, Arabic, Mediterranean, and French influences. You can expect a variety of dishes including both meat and vegetarian options like nicoise salad, squash, root vegetables, beef or lamb with prunes, chicken with preserved lemon and olives, paprika with french fries, and more.

What’s is the camel trek like?

The walking is fairly easy from 1 to 6 miles on a mixture of sandy terrain and hard-packed desert floor with vehicle support. The camels will walk very slowly and will be tied together. The seats will be padded with blankets and you will have have the chance to hop off to stretch your legs

Can I extend my trip?

Yes! We offer pre-set extensions in Marrakesh, Fes, Casablanca, and Essaouira. We can also help you book extra pre-post hotel nights.

Do I need a visa for Morocco?

Visas are not required for US citizens for visits lasting less than 90 days. You must have a valid passport with at least one blank page.
