Ouarzazate Kasbah

 

Photo by Valentina Marconi

A trip to southern Morocco is a journey through stark gorges and palm-studded oases. And is the birthplace of two Moroccan dynasties, Saadian and Alawite. Spend the night in a kasbah, a castle of sorts. Tour a ksar, a fortified village. Explore the Sahara by camel, jeep or foot. Learn about khettara, ancient underground canals. Discover the local culture. Or simply take in the beauty of a very different Morocco.
