Southern Cities

Southern Cities

Picturesque adverts of Southern Morocco are the Morocco most travelers envision: arid mountains, endless seas of sand dunes and ancient Kasbahs that look like they come straight out of a Moroccan fairytale. This is the part of the country where you can spend a night in the Sahara Desert, get to know the Berber culture, trace the paths of the old caravan routes and visit the area where Bobo was born and raised.

Ouarzazate and the surrounding region has been dubbed “Mollywood” due to the amount of films and TV shows that have been shot over the years. This is the part of Morocco where you will find ancient fortified cities which have been used in films like “Lawrence of Arabia”, “The Mummy”, “Babel” and TV shows like “Game of Thrones”.

For travelers looking for a more authentic side of Southern Morocco, M’hamid brings a quieter side of life compared to larger southern cities like Ouarzazate and Zagora. It is nestled in the Zagora region just past the Draa Valley and the last outpost of “civilization” before the start of the famed Sahara Desert. Although travel to this small town is an adventure, the experience is part of the fun and well worth the effort – if you consider picturesque views afforded by the Sahara Desert and surrounding High Atlas Mountain range “effort”!
