Overview

Combining the magical city of Marrakech, with time on the beach, walking with camels and discovering the pirate city of Essaouira this is an excellent short introduction to the fun and colourful country of Morocco. Families are always welcomed with open arms by the warm and friendly people everywhere you go. Starting in Marrakech from our hotel with a pool we travel to the coastal, meet our camels and head out for an exciting overnight camp in the sand dunes to watch the starry night sky. We then walk along the beach and dunes to the village of Sidi Kaouki where we have two nights at a guesthouse with pool and sea views. From here we enjoy walks and visit a Berber family for the sharing of cake and mint tea. The afternoons are free for swimming in the pool, paddling, beachcombing, beach games or an optional surf lesson.


This stretch of the Atlantic is wild, dramatic, remote and beautiful. Onto the walled city of Essaouira where old cannons still point out to sea (true pirate style), we find a wealth of shops and souks, and a sandy beach famous for wind and kite surfing. The last night of the holiday is spent in Marrakech were we can walk in the main square – Djemaa el Fna, watching the children delight at the fascinating mix of dancers, music, storytellers and food stalls which are found here. This holiday truly captures the essence of Morocco and allows parents and children alike to have an active and culturally rich time away.

If you are wanting a longer holiday you can do our Teenage Toubkal Ascent which is available to run back-to-back on certain departures.

Suitable for children from 6yrs old Morocco is bustling with noise and life, which is great fun when embraced. Our two nights in the village of Sidi Kaouki will be relaxing away from the busy towns of Marrakech & Essaouira. We have 1 night camping, where all camping equipment is provided. We should bring a smaller bag to take overnight belongings for this night (transported by camel). We have walks along the beach and inland which are between 3-5 hours. The pace is not fast, and children and adults alike can take turns on the camels, but note that these are walking days…not camel riding days! It can be hot during the middle of the day, though a cooling breeze from the sea often alleviates this. The guide will speak both English and French, and the group may include both English and French families. For the optional surfing lessons children need to be 6yrs or above, there is no restriction of height or size.

Why KE?

This fabulous walking holiday is made by the wonderful local guides who love children and are always keen for a game of football on the beach or having fun. Read the reviews for some first hand comments from Mums and Dads.

Itinerary

Your holiday starts at the hotel in Marrakech. On arrival at Marrakech Airport you will be met by a KE representative who will assist with the short transfer to the group hotel. After settling in you may have the time to do a little exploration. There is lots to see and do in Marrakech, and quite easy to get around. You can head for the central square, Djemaa-el-Fna, beneath the imposing tower of the Koutoubia Mosque. The main labyrinth of souks is also found here if we fancy looking around and chatting to the local sellers. We can have dinner at the hotel or a nearby restaurant.

Accommodation

Hotel with swimming pool

We depart Marrakech this morning on our scenic drive to the coast (approximately 3hrs). We pass many plantations of the famous Moroccan Argan Oil. Our journey takes us to the coast just south of Essaouira. Here we meet our camels and watch as they are expertly loaded with the tents, mats and pots and pans and everything that is required for our one camping night, and then we are off on our mini-adventure walking north along the beach and sand dunes. We have a berber lunch next to the waterfalls at Sidi m'Barek and then we walk to the dunes at Assif n'Boud where the river cuts into the sea. We can look in the rock pools and slide down the dunes. There will be lots of time to splash around in the shallow waters, paddle, play some football or do cart wheels in the sand. At camp the team will help us put our tents up and set up camp. Then we will have dinner, and watch the sky change colours for the sunset and maybe join in with the Berber team singing some songs. The night skies are incredible here with minimal light pollution, allowing us to see billions of stars, and the sounds will only be of distant waves crashing on the beaches. It'll be a special night.

After some breakfasts with sea views we pack up camp and set off with the camels along the coast again. Our path takes us on the beach and dunes to reach the village of Sidi Kaouki. There are a few small accommodations here which cater mainly for the surfers who come for the waves and wind that bless the long sandy beaches. We arrive at our guesthouse accommodation, with sea views, at lunchtime. Our Berber host family cook us delicious meals from locally sourced produce. Alongside more traditional Moroccan dishes there will be some classics for the children to munch through. Maybe a splash around in the guesthouse swimming pool will bring us into the mid afternoon when we'll walk down to the beach 10-15mins. We'll play some beach games or have a paddle before returning to the accommodation for dinner, beautifully prepared by our hosts again.

This morning we walk inland and visit a Berber village. The Berber people who live in this area are called Haha. Our guide will talk to us about the crops and fields that we pass: the wheat, barley, argan, the gardens with vegetables and the shepherds with their herds of goats. Everything is important in the weave of a lifestyle which is still mainly based on the land. We will be welcomed into to a family house for mint tea and can taste some local cake which is traditional dipped in olive and argan oil. We walk back to have a late lunch at our accommodation. Time allowing at Sidi Kaouki beach we can partake in an optional surf lesson. This can be one of the highlights of the holiday for some children (and adults!). The surfing here is very dependent on the local conditions (wind, waves, tide), so we need to remain flexible and aware that it might not happen, to avoid disappointment. At the accommodation there is, as always, time for a swim in the pool before dinner and a good night sleep.

Our final walk starts as we walk along the beach in the morning. Some surfers might be catching the early wave. We pass a small shrine and then a traditional pretty fisherman's village. Our balcony path above the coast gives great views. We have a final lunch with our Berber team before transferring the 40 mins to the old pirate port of Essaouira. This is a great place with a vibrant Berber culture, but a lot more relaxed than Marrakech. It has many souks and stalls to buy all manner of pretty painted bowls, mint tea teapots, spices, and other souvenirs to take home. The town is also renowned for the delicious fresh fish eateries. Time allowing it might be possible to have pampering in a traditional hammam (hot bath) using the local argan oils.

TRAVEL TO YOUR DESTINATION

In some cases you may choose to take a ferry and/or train to your holiday start and end destination. Please see further information on Travelling by Train.

If flying from the UK there are low cost airlines available to the start and from the end of your holiday.

To benefit from full financial protection, ease your holiday planning, and avoid dealing with airlines, we can book scheduled flights from the UK as part of a flight inclusive package. Scheduled flights are usually more expensive that low cost alternatives, however potentially less stressful if your flight is cancelled or delayed. If you book flights through KE Adventure Travel we will offset the carbon of your flight.

The group will meet at the hotel in Marrakech.

Airport transfers are provided for all clients to the group hotel.

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals, except for 1 lunch and 2 dinners whilst in Marrakech, are included in the holiday price.

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. You should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) to treat your water. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Moroccan cuisine is amongst the best in the world and our meals cooked by our Berber hosts or are taken in a range of restaurants and other eateries. Breakfasts are continental style, with tea and coffee, orange juice, cereals including muesli, bread, jam, honey and cheese. A typical Moroccan menu begins with a simple selection of mezze, which might include a bowl of olives or a selection of cooked vegetable salads dressed with olive oil, sprinkled with cumin and served with a dip and flat bread. The tagine or roast meat (or vegetable) dish comes next, served with couscous and often a salad. There will be some meat (usually chicken, lamb or beef). Meat is not prominent in the menu. All dishes come with traditional sauces which are rarely (spicy) hot. A simple plate of prepared fresh fruit or dessert marks the end of the meal, before the mint tea is served. For our picnic lunches we may have a buffet of rice, pasta or cous-cous, with a freshly prepared salad - onion, tomatoes, green peppers, grated carrot, green beans, with tinned sweetcorn or peas added. Hard and soft cheeses, tinned fish, olives, biscuits and bread are also on the lunchtime menu. In the hotels and restaurants in towns it is also usually possible to get more western types of food such as chips and pizzas (to please the children!) Boiled and treated water is provided when staying at the guesthouse and on the walks. You will be able to fill your personal water bottles from this.

In Marrakech (2 nights) we stay at the Imperial Plaza Hotel which has a swimming pool. In Sidi Kaouki we stay a fairly newly built guesthouse with swimming pool called Dar Aalida. This is owned and run by the Berber family who are in charge of the camel logistics for our groups on the coast. It is 10-15 mins walk from the sea, in a quiet setting, with views to the sea. It has 6 bedrooms which can each accommodate 3 to 5 people and have en suite bathrooms. Each family will have their own room. It is simple, but very personable and your hosts will take excellent care of you. When camping all our equipment is supplied. We have large 2-man tents. Families of 3 will have 2 tents for their family. There is also a toilet tent. Camels will carry all the equipment and your overnight bag, so you only walk with your daypack. In Essaouira we have one night in a small hotel in the Medina, which is usually the Hotel Souiri or Riad Inna. All hotels are subject to change without notice.

In Marrakech & Essoauira, 3-person families will share a triple room, whilst 4-person families will have adjacent twin-bed rooms. Occasionally there are family rooms available. We will do everything to ensure that you are happy with your rooming allocation.

If you are planning on extending your holiday additional nights at the group hotel are available on request.

The group will be led by a professional and qualified Moroccan tour leader. This leader will speak English and French. During the walking days you will have the support of camel(s) and their handlers, and a full trek crew team including cook when on our overnight camp.

Approximately £350 per family of 4 (or equivalent in US dollars or Euros) should be allowed for tips, soft drinks, snacks, non-included meals and miscellaneous expenses. Marrakech is a great place for souvenir buying, so you may wish to budget for this.

It is not necessary to purchase Moroccan currency (Dirham) outside the country. You can withdraw money in local currency from ATM’s on arrival at the airport in arrivals or in Marrakech itself. Credit cards are useful and it is a good idea to carry one in case of emergency.

OPTIONAL ACTIVITY COSTS: 

Please note that these prices are correct at time of writing, but are subject to change without warning. Optional activities taken outside the KE holiday are at your own risk.

  • Windsurfing on Dar Alida Beach: dhs 250 for 2 hours (approx €25)
  • Windsurfing at Essaouira (time permitting): €40 per person for 3 1/2hrs

Tips are the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to your local guides and crew. They do not form part of their wages. KE always pays staff the best rates, no matter what country they are in and any tips they receive are seen as a personal thank you from group members. For our part, we advise local teams that tips are not a duty or a prerequisite but are a bonus and entirely dependent on the service that was given. For your crews we recommend that you give a tip if you feel that their services have met your satisfaction. As a rough guide we suggest you allow a total of £80-100 for a family of 4.

For this holiday you should take one piece of luggage and a daypack. Luggage with wheels or a soft bag such is useful for this holiday. Please also bring at least 1 soft bag to pack your families overnight belongings in for the 1 nights camping. These will be carried by camel. For international flights please check your baggage allowance with your airline.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

VACCINATIONS

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The unit of currency in Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham.

During April and October average daytime temperatures in Marrakech will be a comfortable 20-22ºCwhile on the coast the daytime temperatures will be around 18-20ºC. In the summer months we can expect average daytime temperatures in Marrakech of 28ºC. Evening temperatures at this time are around 22ºC. Temperatures on the coast are always cooler than Marrakech and the Atlantic breeze usually means that the ‘real feel’ temperature here is around 20-22ºC. At any time of the year nighttime temperatures on the coast can drop as low as 5ºC. At the times of all our departures you are unlikely to experience rain but this can never be ruled out and you must have protection from this as well as from the sun.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

We welcome all family dynamics and we will try to accommodate you in the roomings of your choice. The only stipulation for joining a family group holiday is that 1 party member is 17yrs or under, and they are accompanied by an adult. An average group size is around 10 members in total.

Sahara Desert Family

4 Days

For a taste of the Sahara Desert this adventure is hard to beat! After journeying across the Atlas Mountains we arrive in the oasis town of Skoua for a night in a traditional Moroccan Kasbah with pool. Next we head into the sandy dunes near the town of Merzouga and take a stunning desert sunset walk with camels to our nomad tents for the night nestled in the dunes. In the morning we'll watch sunrise over the dunes before making our way back to Marrakech, with a stop in Ouarzazate and the UNESCO Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou. Staying in traditional riads and kasbahs with pools, and travelling in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle this is a great way to experience the desert.

Extension Code: SAH4

Extension Itinerary

After breakfast we cross the magnificent High Atlas via a spectacular pass 'Tizi N Tichka' before dropping down to the town of Ouarzazate - The Door of the Desert. This stunning area is a popular location for films which include Gladiator and Game of Thrones. From here we head to the town of Skoura. This traditional oasis town has a palmeraie and classic mudbrick buildings. We overnight here in Skoura.

Meals

B D

After a refreshing swim in the hotel pool we leave Skoura on the road through the famous Dades Valley, which follows the Dades River. Driving through the arid landscape is mesmerising. We pass occasional towns built around lush oasis as we travel via Erfoud into the desert. We finally arrive at our Kasbah in Merzouga (approximately 5hrs). If we have time we can have a swim in the pool. From here we are quickly in the stunning sandy Saharan Dunes. At sunset, as it cools down, we travel with the camels to our desert camp for the night. We overnight in a nomad Berber tent in the desert after a delicious meal next to the campfire. The star filled night skies are truly amazing.

Meals

B D

An early morning start is a must to see the desert sunrise. Whilst it's still cool, we have breakfast and depart back to the Kasbah in Merzouga. The pool is available for a swim if we fancy a dip before setting off back in the vehicle to Ouarzazate (approximately 5hrs 30mins). We take a different route back, via the town of Alnif as we slowly leave the desert. In Ouarzazate we stay at a lovely traditional raid with a small swimming pool. When it cools in the evening we can walk around Ouarzazate and get a feel for this interesting town which served as a crossing point for traders coming from Africa to Europe.

Meals

B D

Our final day takes us back to Marrakech with a couple of stops on the way. Firstly we visit the wonderfully preserved UNESCO Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, a fabulous example of Southern Moroccan architecture, and then the Kasbah Telouet located on an ancient caravan route and once the stronghold of the Lords of the High Atlas and Pasha of Marrakech. Kasbah Telouet is beautiful and the perfect finale on our adventure before we have our final journey back to Marrakech. Depending on your flight times you can arrange an additional night in Marrakech or travel directly to the airport. This extension is run with a driver/guide. It gets extremely hot (40 C) in this area in the summer months, and you should consider this. The distances are extensive and you should expect to spend at least 4-5 hours in the vehicle each day on this extension.

Camel-tastic trip, great for active kids ★★★★★

We had a wonderful week in Morocco, in the safe and kindly hands of the lovely Mohamed, who formed an instant bond with ours boys (aged 9 and 12), and organised everything faultlessly. Highlights included the camels, extraordinarily varied and well-presented food, even when a few hours walk from civilisation, finding a scorpion at the campsite (really!), the visit to an argan oil cooperative, and surfing. The walking can be fairly strenuous for small ones when it is hot, as there is little shade , but there is a good variety of activities, with something for everyone, and lots of swimming opportunities. Food was delicious and most meals accommodated a picky 9yo (perhaps have a few cereal bars / apples on standby when camping), and when wet and windy weather threatened the night camping, Mohamed effortlessly switched the itinerary to push it back a couple of days. If I would do anything differently, it would be to avoid Ramadan, when it was clear that long days in the heat serving our needs were placing additional strain on the local crew. I recommend a couple of extra days in Marrakesh, in a riad in the old town, at the end!

An excellent family holiday ★★★★★

This was a great holiday which all the family enjoyed, a combination of wonderful beaches, great food and camel rides for the children what more could you want from the holiday. Also KE and the local guide (Mohammed) were so friendly throughout the trip. We wil definately be back for another KE adventure.
