 An introduction to the natural history of southern Morocco.


Based for the week at the wonderful Atlas Kasbah in southern Morocco, our holiday is an excellent introduction to the flora, fauna and culture of this fascinating country. The short flight to Agadir, 30 minute transfer to the hotel and relaxed pace of the week make this trip ideal for anyone wanting a taste of Morocco in the company of expert leaders whilst enjoying a high standard of accommodation and easy, comfortable travel.


March is the best time for enjoying many of the flowers, both on the coast and in the mountains. With Mediterranean, Macaronesian and African influences, this area has a fascinating mix of plants including palms, succulent euphorbias, chrysanthemums, toadflaxes, mulleins, irises, ornithogalums and interesting shrubs. The birdlife is very interesting and we should see most of the local specialties, including House Bunting, Moussier’s Redstart, Black-crowned Tchagra and, with luck, the critically endangered Northern Bald Ibis. We will visit the Sous Massa National Park, where as well as a variety of birds, we will also look for several species of antelope that have been reintroduced here, including Addax, Dorcas Gazelle and the graceful Scimitar-horned Oryx.


Our traditionally and sustainably-built and run hotel, the Atlas Kasbah, has spacious rooms with lovely views of the surrounding countryside, attractive patios and a swimming pool. It is situated within the protected argan forest and we will have time to enjoy this area and grounds of the hotel as well as excursions to the coast, mountains, oases, small villages and the attractive town of Taroudant, a ‘mini Marakesh’, to experience the local Berber culture.


 Our previously-advertised holiday, 4th to 11th March 2017, is  now fully booked. We are now pleased to be able to offer this second departure.
