Morocco

Morocco must be one of the most diverse countries in all of Africa – from the high Atlas Mountains to the beaches and rugged coastlines, and from the Saharan desert dunes to the winding alleyways of ancient medina cities and souks, this country is one of the great contrasts.

The landscapes aren’t the only contrasts that Morocco has to offer, even though it is one of only three countries that have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. The culture is a distinct blend of Arab, indigenous Berber, Sub-Saharan African and European influences. Despite the approach of technology and modernity, Morocco has a firm grounding in tradition and trading, and this comes through in the way the locals are so welcoming as well as in the cuisine. While spices have been imported to Morocco for thousands of years, many ingredients such as saffron, mint, olives and citrus fruits are home-grown. Popular Moroccan dishes that most people are familiar with would be couscous and Tagine (stew, normally made with beef or chicken and vegetables).

Weather

The climate is Mediterranean in the North and in some mountains (West of the Atlas), which becomes more extreme towards the interior regions. In the Atlas (Middle Atlas), there are several different climates: Mediterranean (with some more humid and fresher variants), Maritime Temperate (with some humid and fresher variants too) that allow different species of oaks, moss carpets, junipers, Atlantic cedars and many other plants, to form extensive and very rich humid cloud forests. The climate changes when moving east of the Atlas mountains due to the barrier, or shelter, effect of the mountain system, becoming very dry and extremely warm during the long summer, especially on the lowlands and on the valleys facing the Sahara Desert.
