The readers of everyone’s favourite travel magazine, Wanderlust, recently sent in all their best shots of Marrakech to the magazine which have recently published them.
The response was impressive. The magazine says: ‘When we asked Wanderlust readers to send us their favourite photos of Marrakech, we were overwhelmed by the shots’ character, energy and atmosphere. This gallery showcases just some of the brilliant snaps, so head to the MyWanderlust photography page for the full selection…’
This of course proves that Marrakech is simply one of the best places in the world to hone photography skills.
We agree that the readers took some truly wonderful snaps. Have a look through the online portfolio here:
A great way to get active and see Morocco’s countryside is to get out and about on the country’s rivers. One of the best ways to do this is by booking a trip with Dutch-owned company Berber Rafting. A white water rafting and adventure company, most tours involve taking guests to the mountains, trekking on Mt “Jebel Toubkal” (4167 m), Africa’s second highest peak after Mt Kilimanjaro and rafting on the thundering Ahansal River. This is also an unusual way to get up close to traditional Berber villages which might otherwise be hard to access.
Their website is a wealth of information on rafting in Morocco and as well as listing plenty of inspirational itineraries also has some tips on what to do is someone in your party goes ‘man overboard’ and what to pack. The rafting season tends to start just as soon as the snow melts.
