    In the meantime it could be worth you putting Morocco 2014. Morocco 2015. Morocco 2016 in the search at the top, have a read through will give you lots of idea of the Funster Morocco trips.

    Hi @Running Wild we are thinking of going over to Morocco around Jan 2017. With another couple of funsters. Have you been before, It will be a first for us, so a bit nervous of making the trip.Think it could be helpful if we went with someone who has done it before,and new what they 're doing (y) Mew.

    We went for the first time last year. We went mid December and did 10 weeks. Loved it. We went with @Sparkly and they took us to some wonderful places. Took Jane a couple of weeks to get used to it but definitely going back. Perhaps winter 2017. Keep eyes on posts as there is sure to be groups crossing. Ps we had 10 weeks of wall to wall sunshine. Only rained on the day we left.

    And peeps get long jail sentences for trying to reach Middle Eastern and African countries. :)

    " Good day sir. Can you tell me why you wish to travel to Morocco"?
    "Yes, I want to shoot bad guys".....
    "That's fine sir, please pass through, and.....Happy Hunting........"

    As opposed to.........

    "Good day sir. Can you tell me why you wish to travel to Morocco"?
    "Yes, I want to join Islamic State, bring my children up in a totally fresh and fundamentalist Islamic doctrine, and cover the wife's ugly face up with a large sack........."
    "Five years. Take him down........":)

    We are also interested in an early 2017 Morocco trip. We will be in Spain and planning something like a 2-3 week break to Morocco. If anybody is interested in principle let us know...

    2-3 weeks is not really long enough for Morocco it would be better if you stayed longer

    2-3 weeks starting from Spain would allow you to do the highlights, perhaps following the common guided tour route. Clockwise from Tanger Med via Chefchoan , Fez, Azrou, over the Atlas to Merzouga, Todra gorge, ouarzazate, Marrakesh then up the motorway back to Tanger Med. It would be quick but exciting!

    Good luck with the planning

    What may surprise you is just how similar it is to Europe. Just how green it is when you arrive. How French it is.

    You'll see many many homes made with mud bricks but you will also see the sat dishes on the roofs.
