      Hi - I will be travelling to Essaouira for a week in December, can anyone suggest what might be available on typical kids menus in the local restaurants please.

      I am a bit worried about what they'll eat while we're there and looking for reassurance...

    • Travel toMarrakech

      Marrakesh Aug 3, 2015 at 4:19 AM

      Hej Dear All, I will go to Marrakech end of November. I travel alone and never have been visiting countries other than in Europe before. I will stay for 5 nights at a hostel. My embassy warn to go there and in particular warn to avoid going outside the city, to villages in the mountains etc. This is mostly because of the recent conflicts regarding ISIS (hostage-taking), Algeria, Mali, Mauritania, and Western Sahara.

      Do you have any recommendations? How to behave, what to expect, what to avoid, preparing my trip, maybe staying at a safer hotel?

      Thanks in advance, Phil

    • Sep trip - Is my bucket list doable?

      Morocco Jul 30, 2015 at 1:56 AM

      we are a couple in our 50s, in good health but a bit slow.

      We will arrive in Marrakech on the 30th Aug. at 9:30am. We are booked for 3 days at le Meredien Nfis Marrakech.

      I am thinking of leaving on the 2nd Sep, around 8:00am, to Ouarzazate. I understant that this is a 4 to 5 hours trip climbing up the Atlas mountains.

      We are considering stopping for the night in Ouarzazate, after a visit to Aït Benhaddou, booked at Hotel Sultana Royal Golf.

      On the 3rd of Sep, we would drive to Merzouga, hopefully being able to ride the camels before sunset (don`t know if this is doable). Looking at possibily booking thru www.cameltrekking.com

      On the 4th and 5th of Sep we would travel from Merzouga to Fez, with maybe a few stops in between for sightseeing (recommendations more than welcome!!!).

      We are booked at Riad Seffarine in Fez from the 5th till the 10th of Sep (five days altogether, with day trips to Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss).

      On the 10th we start our trip back to Marrakech with an overnight in Rabat.

      11th from Rabat to Essaouira (non stop).

      12th and 13th back to Marrakech

      14th at 9:50am flight out of Marrakech

      Summarizing:

      30th to 02nd Sep = 3 days in Marrakech
      02-3rd = 1 day travelling from Marrakech to Ouazazate, with visit to Aït Benhaddou (sleep in Ouazazate)
      3rd - 4th = 1 day travelling from Ouazazate to Merzouga with sunset camel (sleep in Merzouga)
      4 and 5th = 2 days driving from Merzouga to Fes (Don`t know yet where to sleep)
      5 to 10th = 5 days in Fez with day trips
      10 - 11th = 1 day travelling from Fes to Rabat (Don`t know yet where to sleep in Rabat)
      11 - 12th = 1 day travellinf from Rabat to Essaouira (Don` know yet where to sleep in Essaouira)
      12 - 14th = 2 days back to Marrakech, returning car and leaving Morocco

      Any inputs more than welcome. Thanks in advance.

      Ouarzazate - Demnate (R307)

      Ouarzazate Jan 11, 2014 at 3:04 AM

      We'd like to cross the Atlas from Ouarzazate to Demnate via R307 road with a small car (so no 4X4 or similar) I just checked some pictures and I found some where I haven't seem any asphalt. So around 10/March do you think is it doable with a small car? And if so, how long should I count for the trip. I am a good driver so that shouldn't make a problem.

      Thanks a lot to everyone for your comments and quick help on the earlier post. We still plan to take a bus from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and drive onwards. I am hoping to get your inputs on just 2 pending things:

      1. Car rental at Ouarzazate: Can someone recommend a good and cheap car rental place in the downtown area? I have checked out Hertz/Avis/Budget/EuroCar and was wondering if there was another reliable place. Also, will a sub-compact or compact car (like Ford Ka) be okay for a drive into Merzouga?

      2. CTM bus schedule: Does anyone know if there are any evening buses from Ouarzazate to Marrakech? We start in the morning from Merzouga and need to be in Casablanca by next morning. If we don't fly from OZZ, wondering if we can still get there.

      Cheers

      Bus times from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh

      Ouarzazate Nov 2, 2008 at 6:54 AM

      hello all

      I hope someone knows the answer to my question.

      My partner and I are travelling late December (the week before Christmas) to Morocco.

      Our itinerary is to set off from Marrakesh by bus to Ouarzazate and then hire a car to travel from Ouarzazate to the Draa valley, Dades gorge etc.

      We have travelled to Morocco several times before but never in that region. I am aware that Supratours run to Ouarzazate from Marrakesh as do CTM.

      I have the time details for leaving but I really need to time travel details for setting back off from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh. I need those details in order to pre-book the car hire, most car hire companies require a time of pick up which I cannot give at the moment.

      These are the details that I have for the outward journey, but I need the return times.

      CTM :: leaves 11am – arrives 3pm or leaves 4pm and arrives at 8.30pm (2 journeys a day)

      Supratours :: leaves 2pm – arrives 8pm

      Notice how Supratours take a lot longer to get there...

      Many thanks for all your input, I realise that this is a frequently asked question.
