Atlas Mountains

You’ll probably drive through several small villages and stop to see the production of Argan Oil, a product that’s becoming ever so popular.

Sahara Desert

A trip to northern Africa wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the desert. The Western Morocco Sahara is the sandy region where the country borders with Algeria. Travelers can go on camel safaris over the massive sand dunes and also spend the night with local Berber tribes. The evenings can be quite festive with lots of singing and drumming and you probably will taste the best tagine in the country.
