Hi I had travelled about 50 countries when I had my first visit to Morocco, which was with some Moroccan friends I worked with in London. Shared the driving during what was their annual trip back to their families in Casa and Fez, which was an interesting way to be introduced to Morocco meeting and staying with locals a week in each of their cities, with the plan to then get a car and take off to see southern Morocco with my trusty Lonely Planet guidebook and Michelin road map for 3 weeks
After that I was addicted and regularly or frequently travelled over to Morocco to see beauty spots again, places that have changing seasonal beauty such as spring blossoms for photos enhanced by each seasons diversity , various festivals and explore lots more of the back roads.
I've been back about 50 times many of those visits for lengthy chunks of time so Morocco has pretty much been another home country for me over a period of 15 years and as an avid traveler and photographer I've picked up a lot of info, connections and experience.

There was no greater joy than getting a car and driving off around Morocco....and that's particularly out and away from the cities. Being amongst the Berber areas and Saharien areas and High Atlas and Anti Atlas is wonderful particularly if you experience the comparison of being in the cities you've mentioned. You need a good guide book such as the DK Eyewitness guide and you'll get an idea that there is a lot of difference between society out around southern Morocco and the 'imperial' and modern cities.

If you want recommendations for places to stay where you can meet really kind, genuine locals and beautiful routes to drive then feel free to let me know. If you want to just go to those cities you've mentioned and miss so much of Amazigh culture and hospitality then it's easy enough to unfortunately just take public transport between them on your own if you dont find a travel companion and each place has a vast array of places to stay find able on booking.com tho the Lonely Planet and Rough guide guides still tend to find and point out a few choices run by families providing more character and hospitality.

Hello Robin, thanks for the invitation to the trek but I still have lots of questions. Is the climbing really demanding and how well you must be trained for it? As for the weather - is the November nasty for a trip, as far as I know, the average altitude temperatures can differ greatly... what kind of specific equipment do we need. I have some friends who are as well eager to experience such a trek.

Did somebody say Casablanca was not interesting?...you evidently have not explored the old ex-French Colonial city properly, so maybe you can start here......

....and with the arrival of the new Al Boraq high speed train between Tangier and Casablanca it's only a two hour and ten minute journey from north to south Morocco or vice versa.....
