The tour will be mostly focused on Moroccan birds, but we will also include time for other forms of nature, Moroccan people, and cultural attractions. In addition, the walking is easy and takes place on well-maintained trails or tracks. You’re in the pre-desertic territory, so expect rocks and dust!. Then, A 4×4 car tour of the Sahara desert is only available on one day. Also, the majority of our birding takes place within a short walking distance of our minibus.
Breakfast and dinner will be served on the premises of the hotel. Also, on most days, lunch will be served at local eateries, where we will sample the region’s diverse cuisine. Moreover, the tour’s most traditional Moroccan option is the various forms of Tajini, which usually include a vegetarian alternative if requested.
