Splendours of Morocco Itinerary

Day One

Meet your guide who will kindly escort you to the hotel where your time to relax on holiday begins! At dinner you can meet fellow guests with a traditional Moroccan meal in a local restaurant and share the excitement of the next few days!

Day Two

Prepare for a fun ride to the High Atlas in a four-by-four which will present stunning views along the winding roads of the Tizi n Tichka pass. We follow this route past its highest point of over 2000 meters down to Ouarzazate, visiting the fortified city of Ait Benhaddou and its high walled Kasbah. Lunch at a restaurant gives time to reflect with fellow single travellers on your first few moments in Morocco before we set off on a visit to the Atlas Film Studios, giving us a glimpse of the North African film industry. The evening is reserved for rest and relaxation by the pool with a cocktail in hand or a calming walk into the Kasbah Tauorirt, whichever you please.

Day Three

M’Hamid is a village in the Sahara which we will first visit in the morning for its ideal temperatures. The road ends as we approach the desert and begin an off-road adventure through the Oasis in the Draa Valley, stopping for lunch at Zagora. Here we have desert culture to explore with a museum-kasbah, Koranic library and a pottery exhibiting some fascinating pieces of history. We have the extraordinary chance to adopt a camel ride later today before another memorable experience living the Moroccan lifestyle with a meal in the desert and local entertainment. We retire to our shared bivouac, an improvised campsite, which will bring fond memories and a wonderful group spirit together.

Day Four

We awake fresh from a spectacular night under the star filled skies and drive to the magical vistas and sand dunes of Erg Chigaga. Immerse yourself in Berber traditions with lunch in the Sacred Oasis and then unwind with the locals as they carry out their daily routines around you. We spend tonight in the tranquility of surrounding dunes at Erg Chigaga and our bivouac. Sand boarding will bring laughter before the night comes to a close.

Day Five

Get up early and enjoy another spot of sand boarding before we depart on an incredible off-road venture to Tazenakht, a brilliant carpet-weaving town. Stunning colours and patterns come together in this area with vast open areas and interesting buildings we pass on the way to your hotel in Talaouine. Enjoy a few drinks with your new travel partners and share your most favoured moments thus far!

Day Six

Travel over the Tizi n Test Mountain pass on a journey to Marrakech for simply unbeatable views and your first experiences of the Ochre City. Berber traditions come to life in this city, where you will dine in a restaurant with exquisite food, drinks and the company of your new friends.

Day Seven

Visit the grandest Berber market in the whole of Morocco and haggle for a souvenir before standing back for a moment and seeing the mystical Medina in front of you, bustling with traders, animals and vibrant colours. After lunch you are free to admire the Marrakech gardens or organise a trip to the local steam room where people come every week to cleanse themselves and talk with friends. The local Fantasia may provide the setting for our last night as a group with delicious food and entertainment on offer. Another option could present views over the main square in Marrakech.
(Please Note: the final meal and entertainment is not included in the package)

Day Eight

Our journey through Morocco comes to an end, but not before exchanging contact details and saying farewell to the land which brought some astonishing memories. Accompany the group to the airport and make plans for another singles holiday perhaps next year!

Tour Highlights

The Atlas Mountains

Covering a large stretch across the Northwest of Africa is the Atlas Mountain range which can be separated into four distinct regions and is home to unique wildlife. Explore the culture of its residents, the Berbers, living a peaceful life in the high altitudes. Discover plant species only found in these parts of Africa and bring a camera for a few images to look back on!

Sahara Desert

Cross the sandy Sahara, which occupies most of North Africa, in 4x4 vehicles for an adventurous journey over dunes and naturally formed rocky features. Feel the warmth and see vast open areas ready to be explored, with rich flora and oases where camels and goats are brought for water. Find a spot of shade and let a mirage become visible whilst you rest in the company of the Berber people.

Marrakech

One of the oldest and largest cities in Morocco that comprises an old Medina amongst modern villages. Visit the Djemaa el Fna for a lively atmosphere of entertaining music, dancing, stories and acrobatics in one of the largest open squares in the world. Places of interest include the Koutoubia Mosque, Saadian Tombs, Agdal and Menara Gardens and lovely details of the Bab Agnaou City Gate. Marrakech is to put simply, a colourful and inspiring place to see the sun set and stars come out.

Frequently asked Questions

Who are Solitair?
The specialists in Singles Holidays
Sophisticated, fun & adventurous holidays chosen especially for the single traveller

Who books with Solitair?
Our customers join us from all walks of life. We have found that people choose to travel solo for many reasons, but appreciate the communal ambience created by the Solitair concept. Our guests can be single, separated, divorced, widowed or simply unable to co-ordinate holidays with family and friends. We always endeavour to balance numbers, genders and ages within each group, but naturally, we can never guarantee a particular mix of people.

Read more about just who our customers are, with our survey on Singles Holidays Uncovered!

Why book with Solitair?
We operate our holidays with a real knowledge of the single traveller's wishes and aspirations, with recommendations personally tried and tested by ourselves. Our guests benefit from the knowledge and experience we have accumulated over the past 15 years, enabling us to offer the very best singles holidays. With Solitair you will find great company, total freedom, good food and friendly hosts at all our holiday destinations.

Age - does it matter?
Definitely not... We know from our experience that a cross section of ages offers the best mix for our groups, so you will have the opportunity to meet new friends across a wide range of ages. Our experienced travel advisors will guide you towards your perfect holiday dependent on age and interests.

What is the age range of people travelling on a Solitair holiday?
Solitair arrange specific holidays for singles who want to match their age range and interests. We cater for single travellers from the ages of 29 to 79 with some holiday highlighted for particular age groups as below.

How do I connect with other singles going on holiday?
Once you have booked your holiday, you can register to our site by using your booking reference number to join our on line community of single travellers. Never be bored or stressed in the airport again! Find your new friends before you travel with our email exchange service and online community. Perhaps to meet before you travel at an airport lounge, generally get to know your fellow travellers before to go on holiday or just to chat and share experiences.

Are you a dating agency?
No, we do not design our holiday packages to have any aspect of introduction or dating services. We offer holidays purely for single travellers who want to go it alone but do not want to spend their holiday on their own. Good friends do certainly result from our holidays. Although individuals have met and become a couple as a result of our holidays this is not an intention of Solitair.
