Chefchaouen, with its white washed walls and blue doors and windows, is a beautiful unique city situated at the foot of two higher mountains. Chefchaouen, unlike many other parts of Morocco, was occupied by Spain, and as a result, there is a strong influence of Spanish civilisation and Moorish architecture.

There are a lot of hooded men and veiled women here. In the afternoon, you'll embark on a guided camel ride through Merzouga's sand sea, led by an experienced camel man.

DAY 12: MARRAKECH - ESSAOUIRA:

The hustle and bustle of Marrakech quickly slips away as you travel to and enter into the peace and beauty that is Essaouira. This ancient city on the West Atlantic coast of Africa literally means “wall” in the Berber language, and you’ll soon discover why. Travelers from all over the world come here to experience the very special weather, and explore its diverse and unique history.As we leave Marrakech, we drive through lush valleys filled with orange groves, ancient olive trees and working farms on the drive to the coast. After a short while, we arrive in Chichaoua, where we can take a short break for a coffee or snack . Once you have had the chance to refuel a bit, we will continue on, soon coming upon our first signs of the Argan trees. These special trees are valued for their nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.  After all of your morning travels, you arrive in Essouira, where you have the chance to wander the ancient streets and can imagine what life existed here in the past. The streets have a genuinely Portuguese feel, after they renamed the city in the 16th century and used it as a port city of their own. Overnight in authentic riad.
