MROCCO

Morocco is one of the emerging travel destinations in Africa and the Mediterranean Sea. Morocco offers the perfect blend of mystery, beauty, history, culture and luxury. From the narrow streets in the ancient cities to the amazing sand dunes of the Sahara, Morocco should definitely be on your travel plans. Additionally, its geographic situation at a cultural crossroads has for centuries left Morocco vulnerable to external cultural imposition. The legacy of such varied influence from within and without is the extremely rich and surprisingly harmonious tapestry of modern Morocco. While the soul of Morocco is reveled in art, its body is reflected in the souks. All the colors, sounds and smells of the country are mingled here. The souk of Fez has been declared one of the world’s cultural treasures by UNESCO. 
Morocco is a very safe country with an ancient tradition of hospitality so travelers feel secure and very welcome. The physical beauty and cultural brilliance together with an extensive tourist infrastructure of exquisite modern and traditional hotels, and resorts; world class golf courses and excellent guides makes Morocco one of the most exciting and fulfilling travel destinations in the world.
