Rock The Kasbah
What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour
It is difficult to identify a single highlight of the Rock the Kasbah trip as each day varied and was packed full of interesting sights and activities. However, having been on holidays with Explore before where mule and camel rides have been taken, one of the highljghts of this trip for me is that the mule, camel and bike riding was meaningful as modes of transport between destinations rather than merely 'rides'. I particularly LOVED the cycling (!) whilst for my 13 year old daughter, camping in the desert, star gazing and singing Christmas songs with the camp crew around the camp fire on Christmas eve was amazing!
How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Our Explore tour leader was very informative, great with both adults and teenagers and full of energy and enthusiasm that all party members were content.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
Pack the range of clothes and equipment recommended with plenty of thermal clothes for cold nights in the mountain accommodation and the desert. Cycle shorts for camel and mule rides as well as the bike ride are a must! Regular, frequent cycling in advance of the trip provided me with a level of fitness from which much benefit was derived on the cycle trip.
Do You Have Anything Else To Add
The hotel accommodation varied and we particularly welcomed a great hotel in Ouarzazate with good showers and comfortable, warm beds after our night in the desert.
|From the moment we arrived in Morroco we felt we were in a different world. Our Marrakech hotel was very simple but perfectly adequate and as it was only twenty five minutes walk from the souks and medina it was easy to start exploring straight away. On our first tour day we took off in the minibuses into the mountains and were introduced to our mules. The handlers helped us mount... just as well as it was a bit tricky, with there being no saddle or stirrups and only a blanket to grab hold of, but we soon got used to it and trekked up into the hills through the tiny villages to our gite which had amazing views of the valley. On our fourth day we cycled to Atlas film studios... the cycle ride was a couple of hours long and over rough stony desert (a bit like cycling a river bed) so if you’re not used to off road cycling it’s hard work and definitely worth packing padded shorts! The support vehicle followed us and was on hand for any bike repairs or to provide a lift. The camel ride into the sand dunes and sleeping under shooting stars was definitely the high light of the whole trip but we could have slept in the big communal tents if we wanted to. Overall it was an amazing tour, different activities to every day and never feeling like we were on a tourist treadmill. Our guides were very flexible and adapted the itinerary if there was something in particular that we wanted to do, or not do. This was our first adventure holiday and now wecan’t wait to try another.|
