The Way will lead us to the small, cozy city of Ifrane, a town nestled in the Middle Atlas Mountains, a place that has been a location for wild animals, in particular the lion. If you pay attention, you can see a lion statue in the city center, which means what we said above. Thereafter, we continue to the Cedar Forest a natural beauty, ecological importance, and cultural significance. It is also recognized as one of the most renowned forests in Morocco.

Later, catch the stars at one of the closest dunes away from the camp’s light.

    Today is a day of discovery and rest at the same time. Take advantage of this morning and wander through the alleys of Essaouira, also known as Mogador. Don’t miss the opportunity to taste the city’s fish, which is undoubtedly tender and not frozen. Visit Skala and its surroundings, as well as the small, pristine beach, are worth visiting. After lunch, we will take you on a tour to Sidi Kaouki, 30 km away from Essaouira, to spend the rest of the time enjoying the sunset in one of the cafes overlooking the sea, or you can also try surfing or quads.
