A perfect way to visit the Sahara in the south on a short trip or just take a flight around the Marrakech area and into the hills.
Flight over Marrakech Palm Groves
Leaving from Marrakesh’s Ménara airport, head North from the city en route for the Marrakech Palm Groves.
Fly over the Tensift Wadi (river), the beautiful Marrakesh Palm Groves, the golf courses of the city, and return along the outskirts of the Ochre City.
With a flight time of 20-30 minutes, this route is ideal for a first helicopter experience and helps you see the City of Marrakech in a way you have never seen it before.
Flights depart from and return to Marrakech Ménara Airport (only 10 minutes from the centre of the town).

There are a selection of hotels with heliports including the Xalucca Maadid in Erfoud on the edge of the dunes, and the Kasbah Tamadot in the Atlas Mountains at Asni, which can be combined with a city hotel in Marrakech for an exciting helicopter-based tour of Morocco.
The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
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.
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.
