The camel trader
Meet Khalid, who’s family has traded camels for over 200 years, as he leads us on an incredible trek through the desert. Understand how environment shapes culture here, and how Khalid is working to carry on his families’ traditions in ever changing modern times.
Reflection time in the oasis
In a surprisingly luxurious Berber tent set up for us in the middle of the desert, we can glimpse the Atlas mountains from afar as our hosts prepare a tagine dinner for us. During our nightly circle we reflect on our cultural differences- and the similarities that are all the more powerful.
Medina of Marrakech
The stunning waterfalls of Ouzoud, and a small coastal fishing village home to a women’s micro-enterprise. How does it all connect? Our incredible local guides help us connect the rich culture, stories, and history of Morocco to help us better understand our own lives and our ever expanding world.
We customize each experience… options are endless!
DAY 1: Owning your Experience
Welcome to Morocco! Your guides introduce the Story Approach & Expedition Mentality, and our first nightly reflection circle empowers students to be fully engaged in their experience here.
DAY 2: Exploring Marrakech
Dive into Marrakech – explore the Tanneries and watch workers as they hand dye material in preparation for trade in the city. Visit Jemaa el-Fnaa square, with snake charmers, henna-tattoo artists and vibrant culture. Enjoy a traditional lunch before we explore markets and the Kasbah.
DAY 3: Natural Resources
Take a spectacular hike to the Waterfalls of Ouzoud. Along the way, we enjoy local tagines cooked for us on the trail before we lend our hand to leave a positive trace with a plastic recollection and clean-up in this beautiful reserve.
DAY 4: Toward the Atlas Mountains
Today we cross the Atlas mountain through dirt roads, valleys, passes, gorges, dunes and picturesque villages as we discover this unique country. Stop on the way at Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, a magnificient fortified city made of adobe, before we continue on to spend the night in Berber tents in the desert.
All of our guides were friendly, extremely knowledgeable of every place we went, and wonderful in working with kids. It was easy to tell that they were teachers and educators.
