Marrakech is Africa’s incredible melting pot
The joy of the Marrakech region lies in its diversity. You’ll revel in the colourful rush of the city souks, be inspired by the breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains, and moved by the gentle and warm hospitality of the Berber people.
Here is an area influenced by east and west, by Africa and Europe. Marrakech is two pulsating cities in one – where modern culture sits just the other side of 11th Century walls. And all this endearing commotion is surrounded by quiet Berber villages.
If you exhaust the city’s fountains, palaces, and mosques, head south to the Atlas Mountains. Here, snow-capped summits perch high above wild river bases, protecting Marrakech from the searing climatic extremities of the Sahara Desert.
