Taroudant - City Holidays

The trip from Marrakech to Taroudant over the Atlas mountains is one of Africa’s great road journeys. A winding, vertiginous climb leads to the 2,092-metre high Tizi n Test pass, from where you can see the plains of the pre-Sahara stretching as far as the horizon.

...continued from Taroudant page.

In contrast to its big-city neighbours, Agadir and Marrakech, Taroudant has an unhurried air and a ‘desert town’ feel. Situated among groves of orange and pomegranate trees, the town occupies a strategic position between the snow-covered high Atlas to the north and the Anti Atlas to the south.

For a short while, under the Saadian dynasty in the 16th century, the town was the capital of Morocco. The town owed its wealth to the sugar cane, cotton, rice, indigo and olives grown in the Souss valley. Much of the produce is on sale in the daily souks, which also sell spices, clothing, Touareg jewellery and handicrafts.

A great way to see Taroudant is by hiring a bicycle, or taking a horse and carriage around the ancient ochre-red city walls. Taroudant also boasts two of the most evocative hotels in southern Morocco: the charming and simple Dar Zitoune and the top-of-the-range Gazelle d’Or.

Our price promise: We will not only match offer prices on hotels you may have see quoted elsewhere, but additionally offer FREE room upgrades at most of our hotels, and the best ground transport for transfers, tours and multi centre trips.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

We could not have been looked after better.

Dear Max

Thanks for arranging such a great trip for us. Splitting our time between the mountains & Marrakesh was just what we needed.

Maroc Lodge was fantastic. We could not have been looked after better. The highlight was the guided tour with Latife. She was exceptionally knowledgable and we really enjoyed hearing a woman's perspective on life in the ...

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

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.
