Why Morocco?

Morocco is the perfect mix of Moroccan culture, tradition, natural beauty and modern culture.

Here are some answers to questions you might be wondering about

Moroccan Activities

Meeting the Moroccan people involves nothing more than sitting in a cafe and waiting for your mint tea to brew. The trick is to leave enough time to watch the world go by with the locals when there’s so much else to fit in: hiking up North Africa’s highest peak, learning to roll couscous, camel trekking, shopping in the souqs, getting lost in the medina, and sweating in the hammam. Between the activities, you can sleep in the famous riads, relax on panoramic terraces and grand squares, and mop up tajines flavoured with saffron and argan.
Top Tips for Traveling to Morocco

Place

Morocco is located in the northwestern corner of the African continent. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and Algeria to the east and southeast. The Strait of Gibraltar separates it from Spain at its northern tip. Its southern border is the Sahara Desert. With an area of 446,550 square kilometers (172,413 square miles) and a coastline of 1,835 kilometers (1,140 miles), Morocco is slightly larger than California.

Region

As part of a 1997 decentralization and regionalization law passed by the legislature 16 new regions of Morocco were created. The region is the current highest administrative division of Morocco. The regions are subdivided into a total of 61 second-order administrative divisions, which are prefectures and provinces. A Moroccan region is governed by a Wali, nominated by the King. The Wali is also governor of the province (or prefecture) where he resides. -Formal Region: The countries surrounding Morocco are similar in culture and politics, but the greatest similarities come from their physical features of the Sahara desert.

Interaction and Environment

Human-Environment InteractionA high amount of farming and agriculture are the main causes of environmental disturbances in Morocco. Land degradation and decertification are all factors that have been caused by soil erosion from overgrazing and vegetation destruction. Oil pollution of coastal waters are yet another consequence of the people. The earthquakes and droughts have been difficult for Moroccans to adapt to, but with the growth of the country these difficulties have become smaller problems.

Movement

Exported goods consist of vegetables, wine, text-tiles, and fish, these and more create $12.75 billion dollars a year. Around $28.5 billion dollars is spent on importing supplies such as, oil, wheat, plastics. France is their number one import partner. Very little migration takes place in Morocco. The net migration rate is -0.77 migrants/1,000 people, this shows more people are leaving the country than are coming in.
