We are vegetarian – will we be able to find vegetarian options in many restaurants?
While there are few Moroccan vegetarians, there are definitely vegetarian options available.
Your driver/guide will definitely help you in this area, breakfasts are typically continental-type with rolls, jam/butter/honey, yogurts, cheese, etc. Salads are mostly made of vegetables but sometimes have tuna or egg. Lunches/dinners: ask for vegetarian Tajines (stews) or couscous. There might be veggie soups, but Harira typically has some meat in it. One local favorite is an avocado smoothie and can be enhanced with dried fruit and nuts. If you’re in the south, they serve “Berber pizza” or Medfouna, stuffed with onion and almond. Msemen is also a local favorite and is best described as folded fried dough, which can be eaten salty or sweet, and is sometimes stuffed with caramelized onions.
What should I wear for a Morocco trip?
There are no strict rules with dressing, Morocco is deemed an open country.
Morocco is a liberal country, due to its proximity with Europe. Therefore, dressing for foreigners has not to be a big issue. However, it is important to note that the majority of Moroccan people are conservative, and do not approve seeing foreign guests wearing inappropriate clothes which may break the public norms, it doesn’t mean you should wear as the locals, but particularly, women have to respect the general clothing norms, which is covering the knees and breast and avoiding tight or transparent outfits.
Is it a good idea to bring children to Morocco?

Preparing for your camel trek and the desert camp
Here in the desert temperatures vary significantly by day and night throughout the year so we always recommend several layers of clothing so you can adjust accordingly.
Coats, fleeces and scarves would be needed during a winter stay, but short-sleeves and shorts are good for the summer allowing for an extra layer as the night time temperature falls, Flip-flops and other loose shoes are pretty ineffective in the sand, so trainers or classic “desert boots” would be far more appropriate.
What I need for: Camel trekking
1: Please if you have contact lenses try to remove them before you ride your camel and safe it on your car or riad because the air in the desert can be dusty.
2: please make sure you have enough water with you one bottle each is fine, before ride your camel.
3: It’s important to have Suncream and sun Glasses, you will need it in the desert because of the sand storms which happens sometimes or even a light wind makes the sand hurt your eyes. Suncream will protect your skin from sun burns, in addition to this we will provide you with a turban to cover you face and hair from the sand as well.
4: After about 2 hours camel riding through the sand dunes, while going slow you will have opportunity to stop for a break, for photos… with a request to your camel guide then arrive to the luxury camp.
So for the camel trekking conditions, Please we don’t recommend it for the following travelers:
- If you are over 75 Years old.
- If you have a surgery, or some serious sickness.
- If you are a pregnant woman.
At the campsite
1: You will need a flash light, because the camp does not have lights, but they use candles to make the experience more authentic and once in a lifetime.
2: If you wish you can bring with you sleeping bag, but in the camp there are beds and blankets to keep you warm as our team will take good care of you, providing you with an exceptional service.
