Mgoun, Toubkal and Essaouira
By: Marjorie Gilks, Merseyside, UK
The first part of the trip was aborted due to poor weather and this was disappointing but unavoidable. Mustafa coped with this situation admirably and we enjoyed a tour of the Bougamez valley. I enjoyed walking through the villages and talking to our guides about the local culture and architecture. I feel I had a truly 'Moroccan' holiday in every way. The three separate aspects of the trip gave scope to see large parts of the country. We were very well fed!! Indeed exhorted to eat more and more at each meal. Mustafa was a fount of knowledge of the Bougamez valley and made our trip very, very interesting. I had a previous trip with KE: Jiri to Everest Base Camp, and was very impressed with the service I received - this trip was just as impressive and I will certainly be back again to KE.

The coastal trek south from Essaouira was an unexpected delight: I booked the holiday on the strength of the high Atlas elements but the walking along deserted beaches and cliffs was superb, and showed another side of Morocco that I suspect few visitors get to see.
