 Click here to watch an exciting video about Morocco! The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou is an exceptionally well-preserved example of the ksars (fortified villages) of southern Morocco. Ait Ben Haddou is located in Ouarzazate province, which is also known as the center of the Moroccan film industry. Click here to read about Ait Ben Haddou.  The "Blue Village" of Chefchaouen is tucked into an idyllic valley in the Rif Mountains of northwestern Morocco. It's known as the Blue City because, well, because it's blue. Walls, doors, shutters, even some of the cobbled streets are washed in shades of blue. Click here to read about Chefchaouen. Gnawa musicians play three-string lutes known as a guembri. Gnawa is the mystical form of Islam practiced by the descendants of enslaved, black Africans brought to Morocco in the 16th century. Music is integral to Gnawa ritual. Click here to read about Gnawa music. The Sahara Desert! This is the Erg Chebi, a sea of sand dunes where we set up traditional desert camps for our travelers. Two of our published tours include an overnight in the desert, as well as a short camel trek in the dunes. Click here to read about camel riding in the Sahara Desert.Click here to read about a night in the Sahara Desert.  The leather tanneries of the Fez medina are an interesting, if smelly, diversion. Much of the processing of the hides is done in the open air and can be viewed from the balconies of the surrounding leather shops. Click here to read about the Fez tannery experience.
