Why visit Marrakesh?

Explore incredible geography

On a geography school trip to Marrakesh, your students will have the unforgettable experience of discovering the geography and culture of this vibrant North African nation.

Morocco extends from the Atlantic coast to the Sahara Desert and the central and southern part of the country is dominated by the Atlas Mountains.

On your geography school trip to Marrakesh, your students will have the unforgettable opportunity to visit Amizmiz, a small town that lies in the foothills of the High Atlas. The town is an important central point for the many surrounding Berber villages. Berber farmers bring their produce and livestock to the town to trade and sell. Here, your students will learn more about how the geography affects the way people live their lives.

You’ll also visit Lalla Takerkoust Lake, which was built by the French in the 1920s as part of a dam and irrigation project. Here, your students will learn more about large scale water management.

You can also choose to visit Ourzazate, which is also known as the ‘door of the desert’, as it’s a popular base for excursions out into the Sahara. It may look familiar – the town is a popular filming location and has appeared in Game of Thrones!

Discover a rich culture

Enjoy a school trip to enchanting Marrakesh and watch your students explore an ancient culture!

The culture of Morocco has been influenced by many different civilisations throughout the centuries, from those who came from the East, such as the Phoenicians, Jews and Arabs, to the Sub-Saharan Africans who came from the South, as well as the Romans and Andalusians who came from the North.

On your school trip to Marrakesh, you’ll visit the Medina and its souks and follow your guide to Djemaa el Fna, the central square famous for its gathering of story tellers, snake charmers, food vendors and dancers.

One of the highlights of any school trip to Marrakesh is the spectacular Fantasia dinner at Chez Ali, where you’ll enjoy a typical Moroccan dinner under Berber tents. You’ll listen to folk music, enjoy watching some belly dancing and see acrobats and horse riders too.
