Who would say no to a good trip? Anyone?
Travelling no doubt is a lot of fun. There’s the part where you meet new people, discover new things about different cultures, explore attractions and basically relax.
One of the beautiful countries in Africa you should visit is Morocco. Morocco has been one of the most politically stable countries in North Africa, which has allowed tourism to develop.
Here are some reasons it should definitely be on your bucket list.
1. The riads are absolutely beautiful
A riad is a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard. They are normally with two or more storeys around an Andalusian-style courtyard that contained a fountain. Riads were the stately city homes of the wealthiest citizens such as merchants and courtiers so basically, you get to live like royalty.
2. You’ll take gorgeous pictures
With gorgeous backdrops like this, why won’t your pictures turn out to be like magic? The street is Chefchaouen and situated in the heart of Morocco’s Rif Mountains. Chefchaouen is relaxed with very affordable accommodations, and above all, quite stunning to look at.
3. And you can also explore the Sahara
Morocco’s Sahara desert is a magical place to spend a few nights. You can take a camel trek and camp in traditional Berber tents and spend the night around a campfire under a sea of stars.
4. And try out the Hammam while you’re at it
The hammam is a type of public bathing associated with the culture of the Ottoman Empire and more widely the Islamic world. Hammams, particularly in Morocco, evolved from their Roman roots to adapt to the needs of ritual purification according to Islam.
5. You can go mountain climbing and hiking
If climbing or hiking is your thing, then Morroco is your destination. Many climbers aim to summit North Africa’s highest peak, Jebel Toubkal, the lesser-travelled Anti Atlas mountains also offer ample opportunities for serious trekking.
6. And surf as well
Morocco has long attracted surfers to its Atlantic breakers. A popular time to surf is during the winter months when swells are consistently good and the water and air temperatures are still quite mild.
7. And go skiing
Apparently, Morocco is home to Africa’s highest ski resort and other snow-filled experiences.
