Nomad Photo Expeditions 10 day Morocco Photo Tour with a 5 days extension . From the teeth of the world, the High Atlas Mountains, to the shifting, golden dunes of the western most stretch of the Sahara, Morocco will leave you breathless.

When not in 5 stars hotel we will be staying in fancy boutique hotels, and two nights only in the desert to capture the dunes before they shift to other shapes, and live in a tent as we cross the golden sands that cover the country, and a trip there with us means going in style.

We’ll trek the wilds of Morocco in search of villages by the water, and hunt through the mazes of the cities we stop at on the road. But mostly, we will discover the people. From the throngs in the markets, weaving between ancient Moorish buildings in Marrakech to the dazzle of Meknes, these jewels of the land will not disappoint any photographer, veteran or amateur alike.

Nomad Photo Expeditions 10 day Morocco Photo Tour . From the teeth of the world, the High Atlas Mountains, to the shifting, golden dunes of the western most stretch of the Sahara, Morocco will leave you breathless. We’ll trek the wilds of Morocco in search of villages by the water, and hunt through the mazes of the cities we stop at on the road. But mostly, we will discover the people. From the throngs in the markets, weaving between ancient Moorish buildings in Marrakech to the dazzle of  Meknes, these jewels of the land will not disappoint any photographer, veteran or amateur alike.

When not in 5 stars hotel we will  be staying  in fancy boutique hotels, and  two nights only  in the desert to capture the dunes before they shift to other shapes, and live in a  tent as we cross the golden sands that cover the country, and a trip there with us means going in style.

Nomad has organized a trip centered around documenting the people of Morocco, their daily lives, and their surroundings. With several exclusive photo sessions set up with the elusive mountain Berbers, the fishermen of Essaouira, to the acrobats and merchants of Marrakech

We  will have plenty of fodder – from the street theater of Djemma el-Fna in the central city to our time roaming the day and night markets in Fez, there is ample time for street shooting and spontaneous sessions built into our days.

Not only that but we will stop to see several UNESCO world heritage sites, including the Kasr of Air Benadou, the archaeological wonder of Meknes, and Fez Al Bali among others!

And the land is equal to none. It’s a place practically designed by the powers that be for photographers with endless, impressive landscapes set against stoic peaks, peppered with clandestine oases, and one of the clearest, most intense skyscapes you can imagine. We have planned several stops in out of the way areas that have maintained authenticity, far from any normal tourist fare.

The trip to Ethiopia was a dream come true. It felt as though I had been dropped right into the pages of National Geographic Magazine, which I read as a child, and which instilled a thirst for travel to Africa.

 

Harry ‘s organization and guidance leave nothing to chance. He uses wonderful people on the ground to drive, guide, and make  each experience seamless. The festivals and amazing opportunities, remote and wonderful locations are trademarks of his trips.

 

Harry is a genuine character, with a wonderful sense of humour, an eye for the magic in photographic situations, and a natural teacher’s ability to explain how to make use of light,

line and composition in our shots.

 

This trip was my third with Harry, and a true testament to his ability and to the opportunities he exposes us to is that I am planning trips number four and five only 10 days after my return from Ethiopia.

 

Thank you Harry for an unforgettable experience.

ITINERARY

 

DAY 1 & 2.-  MARRAKECH

 Marrakech is a delight to the senses and an endless font of photographic opportunities. These two days will be spent getting to know the city on its level. We will have plenty of time to wander the labyrinthine streets and photograph the incredible architecture but also a few major highlights such as Bahia Palace and the Koutoubia Mosque – both holdovers from the last time the sultans ruled over the country. However, our most important stop is of course the Medina.

This ‘old quarter’ as it is called is a rushing, overwhelming fountain of color and life, and as we want to know the true Marrakech, much of our photographic study will be spent in this old town district weaving among the kiosks in the souks and the merchants hawking wares, the locals out shopping, and the daily routines we can find unfolding all around us. We will make our way to the heart: Djemaa el-Fna where the legendary snake charmers ply their trade, the acrobats whirl, and the story tellers conjure the past of Arabian Nights.

Highlights here include a dinner at a rooftop restaurant to catch that magic hour of the afternoon as we dine on the local fare.

 

Overnight at Hotel Villa des Orangers 5* http://http://www.villadesorangers.com/ 

 

 

DAYS 3 & 4 .- ESSAOUIRA.

 We  will be heading towards the great town of Essaouira.

            Essaoiura, a small, coastal town,  is just one more in a string of photographic paradises Morocco has to offer. We will arrive f in time to head to the wharfs, where at sunset the fishermen will begin to return from their long days at sea with their catch – and countless seagulls in tow.

The next day after a well-deserved rest we will go about our thorough and exciting exploration of the town. It has its own small but gorgeous medina (old town) with signature blue doors and windows, tiled walls, with a mix of southern European and Moorish styles. There was significant Portuguese influence in the city for several decades of its history, and we will spend time exploring the tall seawalls left over from that epoch. In terms of photography today will be dedicated to low light; as the region is very bright, but the architecture of the city casts long shadows, we’ll be working in interesting conditions as we find places around the town with interesting opportunities, sometimes in strange or unexpected places.

Other highlights include the shots of locals in the surf enjoying their downtime, or riding horseback along the sand, a short but fulfilling tour of the harbor, and the main markets of the central district.

 

Overnight in Essaouira. http://www.accorhotels.com/es/hotel-7145-sofitel-essaouira-mogador-golf-spa/index.shtml 

 

 

DAY 5.-  ESSAOUIRA/OUARZAZATE

Also known as the Gateway to the Desert, this city stands as one of the last settlements and trading posts before the Sahara. Not to mention that due to its historical feel and incredible upkeep, several films from Gladiator to Lawrence of Arabia were shot (at least in part) here. The history of the place is still palpable, as the architecture and the feel of it being one last stronghold before the golden endlessness of the desert beyond has been keenly preserved. We will be spending plenty of time here amongst the Berber speaking locals and photographing the city before settling in for the night.

 

Overnight in Ouarzazate , http://www.hotel-berberepalace.com/

 

 

DAY 6.-  OUARZAZATE/AIT BENADOU/MERZOUGA

             An incredible  excursion from Ouarzazte to the Kasr of Ait Benadou. This Kasr, also known as a fortified palace and village, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s easy to see why. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside the exquisite tile work and carved wooden framework has been near perfectly preserved for centuries.  Its interior preservation and the ancient village of Ait Ben Haddou made it the perfect candidate as a film location for movies such as The Mummy and The Jewel of the Nile. We’ll have plenty of time in all different hours of light to explore this living piece of the country’s history, with a few sessions and surprises thrown in, including an exclusive photo session in some of the less accessible areas of the fortification.

Then we will be on our way to Merzouga for our accommodation.

 

Overnight in Merzouga http://www.hotelmohayut.com/

 

 

DAY 7.-  MERZOUGA/DESERT/CAMP IN JAIMA

             When we talk about Merzouga and Jaima, we’re talking about the real desert now! We’ll be switching from our normal transport to a four wheel drive land cruiser than can help us navigate the sands of the Sahara, while we head into its heart to our tent camp. Normally, the nomadic people that skirt this area have little in the way of amenities, but we will have hot and cold running water, luxury beds, showers, and toilets!

 Here we’ll have a chance to photograph the camel caravans that come through the area, and we’ll position ourselves high on the dunes for an eagle’s eye view, then stay for the magic thirty minutes that is the sunset, where the desert sheds her day dress and climbs into her dusky nightdress. Over dinner we’ll get treated to a Berber drum circle, complete with night photography session.

And no visit to this area would be complete without waking up just before daybreak to see the world wake up from high atop a dune, and capture it on film. Early risers will get the treat of going up the dunes on camel back to catch the sunset before breakfast!

 

Overnight at Merzouga http://www.hotelmohayut.com/

 

 

DAY 8.-  MERZOUGA/RISSANI

            After breakfast we’ll head to the beautiful little town of Rissani nearby. Another desert jewel, this town has a colorful Sunday market we intend to visit for some off the cuff shooting. Aside from it being the central hub of local life for the area, it also boasts a famous parking lot – that is exclusively for donkeys. It doesn’t get much more authentic than Rissani, as the market is rural in nature and farmers come from far and wide to sell their goods straight off the donkeys, sometimes!

 We will stop on the way to visit the underground Kasbah and Koranic library of Tamegroute: This place was once considered a hub of Islamic learning and served a very important function over several centuries of the country’s illustrious existence. Now, it is a set of well-preserved ruins which include a fantastic opportunity for low light photography in the subterranean portions.

 Afterwards we’ll head to Mhamid, or, the ‘End of the Road’. Here is where the Sahara begins, just where this small oasis town sits upon the Draa River. It is one of the two access points (Merzouga being the other one), but few tourists ever make it this far. It is a font of authenticity and worth our time, as we have planned photo sessions with the locals, and a more worthy backdrop against which to take them you could not find.

 

Overnight at Tinehir * http://http://www.riadtimadrouine.com/page.php#!/page 

 

 

DAY 9.-  TINEHIR / MARRAKECH

 We will be heading on our way back to Marrakech . On arrival free time. 

  

Overnight at Hotel Mamunia http://http://www.mamounia.com/fr/ 

 

 

DAY 10.-  MARRAKECH

 After breakfast at the hotel, transfer to the airport for outbound flights. Our representative will help you with exit formalities and then bid you farewell. End of services.

 



EXTENSIONS

 

 

DAY 1 .- MARRAKECH – RABAT

 

We head towards Rabat from Marrakech. On arrival check-in and visiti to the city

 

 

Overnight in Rabat http://www.villamandarine.com/

 

 

DAY 2 .-  RABAT –MEKNES

 

Meknes is another UNESCO World Heritage site – and rightly it should be, as it was the capital of the country in the 1600’s. Here we will also find the sacred village of Mulay Idris, which is a site of great importance to religious pilgrims even in the modern day. We will have lunch and a short photo session here.

 

            Menkes the town and Menkes the ruins stand side by side, so we’ll have plenty of time to explore the exquisitely preserved history of Old Menkes, the turquoise and white tile work, the sandstone buildings standing as silent sentinels over the history of the land, and the ruins of old mosques unyielding to the elements in the old city. Then we will find our accommodation in new Menkes and have some less structured photography time there.

 

 

Overnight in Meknes http://www.palaisdidi.com/

 

 

 

DAY 3 .- MEKNES  - VOLUBILIS - FEZ

 

Today we’ll have a planned photo shoot in Volubilis – these are ruins from the Roman era that due to weather and cultural awareness, have been incredibly well preserved. Early in the morning we’ll set out for this complex which has everything you could wish to  find in a standard Roman city, take a few hours for some good shots in the early light.

 

 

 

DAY 4 .-  FEZ

 

 

            Fez, the Imperial City which is otherwise known as the Athens of Africa. For centuries it has stood as a waypoint for travellers coming around the tip of Africa, and has seen the passing of countless cultures, all of which stopped in the city and enriched the local culture. It is famous for monuments and a cornucopia of heritage.

 

Inside the city which we will visit first is Fez Al Bali, which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site – this is a fabled, labyrinthine medina (old quarter) with narrow allies and medieval architecture and city planning. Here we’ll have a photo session at a local mosque as well as free time for shooting in the medersas and shop lined streets.

 

We will also have sessions at the Borj Sued and the Borj Nord (towers built in the 1500’s by a sultan who wanted to monitor his potentially rebellious populace), a few craft shops such as a local tanner’s, and the gates and façade of the royal palace.
