A journey to Africa is an unforgettable experience no matter what part of the continent you visit. No two countries are the same, meaning you can experience everything from sunrise in the Sahara to spotting the ‘Big Five’ during a safari drive.

The Sahara Desert, the largest hot desert in the world is a site to behold. Home to sand dunes that seem to go on forever and rise more than 330 metres high, Morocco's town of Merzouga is often referred to as the 'Jewel of the Sahara'. It's here that you can truly appreciate the desert and the people that call it home. During the day, visit desert villages and mix with the locals over traditional tea and spend the evenings in a traditional Moroccan Kasbah. Enjoy a morning watching the sunrise over the sand dunes of the Sahara on our A Taste of Morocco, Moroccan Discovery and Southern Spain and Morocco small group tours - take a seat and watch as nature puts on its finest show.
