Morocco Photography Holiday
Discover the magic of Morocco when you travel with us. No matter which holiday you choose, each of our trips to Morocco include return flights, guided ground transfers, accommodation and an expert, local guide to show you the way.
The largest hot desert in the world, the Sahara covers almost all of Northern Africa and at 9.2 million square kilometres, it is roughly the size of the United States. There is truly no better way to experience this incredible natural wonder than enjoying an overnight stay at a traditional Berber camp. The Berbers are an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa, and during our holidays to Morocco, we’ll have the opportunity to catch a unique glimpse into their way of life. We’ll indulge in authentic food at a camp dinner and enjoy traditional music before sleeping under the stars.
Nicknamed “The Red City” for the ancient red sandstone walls that surround it, Marrakech is one of Morocco’s most well-known cities. Marrakech consists of two distinct areas: the historic Medina and the modern Gueliz. The UNESCO World Heritage listed Medina is well-known for its narrow, winding streets and traditional buildings. In contrast, the Gueliz area of the city is home to modern restaurants and shopping centres. Marrakech is also home to Morocco's largest traditional market (souk), which consists of 18 smaller souks selling traditional goods such as Berber carpets and handcrafted woodwork, as well as modern consumer goods.
The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Benhaddou is a renowned example of Moroccan architecture. Located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, the site of Ait Benhaddou is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat, consisting of a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls. It is regarded as the most famous ksar (or fort) in the Ounila Valley and has made appearances in several prominent Hollywood films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth and Gladiator. On our holidays to Morocco including Ait Benhaddou, we’ll visit this landmark with an expert, local guide.
Fes is the world’s oldest and largest medieval city. We'll visit the world’s oldest and continuously functioning university, University of Karueein, and explore the dye-pits and tanneries of the UNESCO listed medina of Fes.
Filled with bright colours, exotic food, and rich history, Morocco is an exciting and vibrant destination to visit. The country’s beautiful landscape is characterised by a rugged, mountainous interior, the imposing Sahara Desert and a lengthy coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. On this holiday to Morocco, we’ll experience the best of the country as we enjoy iconic highlights like the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, the tanneries in the medina of Fes, and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Aït Benhaddou, located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. We’ll also have time to explore Marrakech at leisure and enjoy a camel ride and overnight camp stay in the Sahara Desert. Discover the buzzing city of Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and the Agafay Desert through a camera lens on our Morocco Photography Holiday. With the help of an award-winning landscape photographer from the Dublin Photography School, we’ll be sure to capture memories that will last a lifetime.
