10 days - 2 kids & wanting to SEE Morocco

We have 10 days (flying in and out of Morocco) in the beginning of April. The kids are 7 & 9 and I want them to experience Morocco. There is no point in travelling if you go to a tourist hotel and sit by the pool! I don't have a lot of money to spend on it, but will spend money on "activities" instead of hotels. A day trekking (with mules/donkeys for the kids to ride if they get bored sounds fun) and maybe an afternoon camel riding in the desert? I would love to stay in a kasbah for a couple of days and get into the Atlas mountains. is Quarzazate the best starting point of is Skoura better? How long does it take to get there from Marrakesh to Quarzazate by car? And from there how long to the Todra Gorge? The kids are flexible but are not great at sitting in the car for too long!

jacklenne said it all...

To answer a point or two. usually travel from marrakech to Ouarzazate or even Todra Gorge (5-7 hours). Stopping at Ait Ben haddaou takes about 1-2 hours more as it is before Ouarzazate (from marrakech). Todat Goreg is quite interesting for you all and the kids. The the merzouga deseet. You should have enought time with 10 days to arrive 1 afternoon, spend the next day and that night take an overnight camel trip int the sand dunes!!

Also with the right folks- you can have lunch with a berber family- and children- in their homes in Merzouga.

then off to Fes- with a stop in the ceadr forest to see the wild barbary apes. Kida will love it. about 7 hors drive to Fes.

next ay , tour Fes with an official guide. See a multiact folklore show with a great magician,,

Complete your circular tour by stopping at Volubilis- between meknes and Fes (almost). a 27 b.c. Roman Ruins site- 8 acres,

Yhen you are close to Casablanca.

You did not say where you were landing. casablanca or marrakech.

I happen to know this can be done in 10 days. Some days of driving a lot- but with stops along the way. if you have a driver/guide- it makes the trip much more personal and a good driver will entertain the kids..

Jacklenne, thanks for responding to my posting. Which agent did you use for the camel/camping? Also were the tents sealed at the bottom? My husband is going nuts at me - going on about getting snakes and/or scorpions in the tent!!! (I thought women were supposed to be the cautious ones!!)

Blue Men, thanks for your response to. Is it really 5 hours to Ouarzazate? I had hoped it would be shorter than that - are the roads really that bad?
