      Kasba's in the area of Ouarzazate

      Morocco Jun 30, 2015 at 8:30 PM

      Hello,
      I wonder, can the Kashba's in the area of Ouarzazate and the valleys be reached by public transportation / taxi? I am thinking of Taourirt, Ait Benhaddou, Tamdaght, Telouet, Skoura, Tinerhr, Goulmima Ksar, Dades valley, Valley of Roses, Draa Valley, Tamegroute. I want to be able to spend time there, just as long as i wish, so not depending on tours and tourist offices.

      Thanks in advance

      Safety issues

      Morocco Jul 4, 2015 at 9:06 AM

      Hi,
      I have read the warnings and dangers tips on the Morocco VT travelpage and still, I have some questions for which I cannot find a clear answer.
      - I ve read about the increase of violent robberies, use of knives, in medina’s. Especially tourist who travel alone and walk inside the medina are said to have been victems of this. Even at daytime. Therefore, it’s said that tourists better take a guide to explore the medina, because a guide can protect you from such violent robberies. However, I would prefer to explore the medina without a guide, just on my own. Is this dangerous? The same question applies on travelling in the region of Ouarzazate. Is it dangerous to visit the Kashba’s there on your own, without a guide? Will there be enough tourists who stay at the Kasba’s, so that I am not the only one tourist over there?
      - What sort of clothes to wear on a desert trip in September in Merzouga? Is long light colour trousers and idem long sleeves shirt and a cap a good idea, or will that be too hot?
      - Is there in September a danger in Erg Chebbi as it comes to scorpions and snakes? And if so, what to de when you’ ve bitten?
      -Finally, if it comes to clean accommodation; are mid range (3 stars) hotels clean enough with as it comes cockroaches? Can you buy anti-cockroaches poison in Moroccan towns?

      Thanks in advance for your help

      Regards,

      Ger

      Shipping my treasures home

      Marrakesh Jun 25, 2015 at 7:45 AM

      What's the best way to mail or ship to the U.S. from Marrakech? Fedex? DHL? I'm not planning on buying too much in the Souks but what if I find a tea set I can't live without? Or a bargain on Djellabas? This is not our last stop in our travels so I don't want to cart a full suitcase around with me til I leave for home.
