Morocco is a land of contrasts, combining the dramatic landscapes of the Atlas mountains, culture, history, plenty of family activities and accommodation for every budget. Here are six Moroccan experiences Kotus would highly recommend going on when travelling with children.
Jnan Sbil, Fez is beautiful gardens and a perfect escape from the heat for the whole family. These shady gardens have plenty of fountains for cooling down as well as leafy surroundings. Afternoon concerts are held here during the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music. It is free entry, so definitely worth a visit.
Take your family to Ouarzazate for some authentic experience just minutes outside the city. Spend a night in a traditional Amazigh tent surrounded by massive sand dunes. Try riding camels on treks into the desert where you can see gorges and mountains. Stunning Sahara is the reason why most people come to Ouarzazate. Atlas Studios, one of the largest movie studios in the world, is also located here at Ouarzazate. You and your children will love visiting Atlas Film Studios where such films and TV shows like Game of Thrones, Atlantis, Kingdom of Heaven and Asterix and Obelix have been shot.
For older kids we recommend a visit to the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech. With more than 5,000 haute couture garments, including iconic safari jackets and jumpsuits, it can be an inspirational lesson in high fashion for both children and parents. The museum building is stunning itself, and is worth seeing. Pay a visit to a Berber museum, within the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, and learn how traditional Berber carpets are weaved in Morocco.
Whichever experience you choose to go on, or perhaps complete them all, don’t forget that on top of all that there is always Moroccan beach. Only 3hrs 45mins by plane form Birmingham, Bristol, London Gatwick or Manchester to Agadir, Morocco is a perfect beach destination for families.
