Morocco, where souks are exotic, spices intense, and Abercrombie & Kent's versatile staff can alchemise potential problems into holiday gold. Just ask Simon and his son Marcus. We were taking them south into the Sahara when flash flood stranded 2,000 cars and trucks. We might own the country's most impressive vehicle fleet, but raw nature had intervened. Nothing could move - apart from our guide. He walked miles to a tiny village and persuaded a local family to host our guests until the road re-opened next day. Cue carpets on the floor, excellent homemade food and a convivial, unforgettable bolthole for the night.

Extraordinary for most operators, it's par for the course for A&K. Our experienced team in Marrakech connect to a network of brilliant multilingual guides, and the country's smartest accommodation, including chic riads and our own tented camp in the Sahara.

Morocco Holidays 2015, 2016 with Abercrombie & Kent provide a privileged view of the people and places that make this country special.

The team will help you explore the remains of Roman and Greek empires, along with the most atmospheric cities in North Africa including Fez and its medieval medina, historic Rabat and movie-immortalised Casablanca. And, of course, Marrakech with the sensory assault of Djemmaa-el-Fnaa square's colourful snake charmers, magicians and storytellers. It makes for an intoxicating holiday, but for a more serene take on the city, A&K offers a unique evening in the family home of Mohamed, a local university professor. Expect to discuss everything from politics and philosophy to cooking while devouring homemade tagines.

Morocco is more than its cities. We'll take you to remains of Greek and Roman empires, Essaouira's Atlantic surf and to the Atlas Mountains, where you can hike to Berber villages with epic views of snow kissed peaks. And, as Simon and Marcus, will testify, we'll also take you, come hell or high water, to the Sahara's rippling sea of dunes at Erg Chebbi. It's all possible. Show less...
