Our experience with Lawrence of Morocco was faultless.
Deputy Editor of Harper’s Bazaar, Sasha Slater, travelled with her family to Marrakech and Ouirgane with Lawrence of Morocco in April 2014.
Morocco brims over with contrast, colour and mystery. The savage beauty of its landscape, the drama of its souks and kasbahs and the warmth of its people seem to occupy a realm. The assault on your senses starts soon after you arrive. You catch the scent of fresh mint or the sizzle of kofta on a brazier… you hear the wail of the muezzin... you feel the heat of the African sun on your back and the silkiness of a tadlakt floor under your feet.
Wherever you are, your imagination takes a leap. You may catch a glimpse of the cloud-veiled Rif Mountains, the first of three mountain ranges that slice sideways across the country and culminate in the High Atlas. Beyond lie oases planted with pomegranate and palm trees, crumbling kasbahs and a desert landscape where the air is luminous, the silence total. You may be seduced by Morocco’s beaches. On the tip of Africa, where the Mediterranean merges with the Atlantic, you will find two strikingly different coastlines and all the tranquillity (or activity) you could wish for.
When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.
The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
