Christmas Shopping in Marrakech - Africa's Exotic 'Red City'
With some superb winter deals on offer on low cost flights to Marrakech, just a 3 hour flight will take you from cold, long winter nights in the UK and Europe to balmy Saharan evenings and sunny days in the exotic city of Marrakech. This ancient and mesmerising city offers a real feast for the senses and complete escape from everyday normal life.
From the bustling spice-filled souks of its World Heritage medina to the cavernous antique warehouses of Gueliz, brimming with Moroccan and African art, bargains can be found everywhere. To help you navigate (and negotiate), a personal shopper is a must.
Marrakech offers something for everyone - from monuments, museums and botanical gardens to fine food, vibrant nightlife and an enticing array of day trips to the Atlas Mountains, Kasbahs and Atlantic Coast. On this winter weekend break you'll spend three very comfortable nights at Riad Africa, a small boutique hotel located in the heart of the medina.

Specialist Morocco works in close partnership with several locally owned and managed companies in Morocco. We feel this approach has a more direct benefit on the local distribution of income from tourism. We support and fully endorse the recruitment and training of local guides, local group tour managers, drivers and representation staff. With our guiding principle of employing local people wherever possible our guests see a direct benefit in the improved local knowledge of our local team, whether that be knowledge of flora, fauna, history or just general Moroccan life. Through this approach we can also maximise the amount of your tourism revenue that is delivered directly into the heart of the local economy.
Specialist Morocco is also determined to do what we can to help minimise any negative impacts on the environmental and cultural welfare of Morocco through promoting responsible visitor behaviour; promoting waste reduction; facilitating cultural exchange between guests and local communities; supporting local businesses, goods and services; encouraging guests to eat local foods rather than imported foods; encouraging the conservation of natural resources like electricity and water; and promoting the importance of protecting the local environment and nature.
