In The News: Live with Index Select Webinar
We've worked with one of our representation partners, Index Select, to create a webinar about how Experience Morocco is navigating the Covid-19 crisis. You can watch it here. Our co-founder Hicham details the current situation on the ground in Morocco and explains how Experience Morocco is working with our extended family of guides, drivers, partners, and team members to get through this difficult time.
In the News: EM team goes remote
Like so many people and companies globally, our team is working from home for the time being. Luckily for us, much of our work can be done online, but we have needed to adjust our meeting style. To keep our team connected and engaged despite the physical distance between us all, we are doing daily virtual team meetings where we focus not just on work but on maintaining our close-knit team spirit. We’ve implemented a buddy system where buddy pairs do daily check-ins to provide support in these uncertain times by sharing recipes, workout tips, chatting and discussing daily happenings. Pictured above is how our team came together to wish two of our team members a happy birthday from a distance. Our aim is to come out of this crisis stronger so that when we can get back to the daily business of booking guests’ dream trips to Morocco, we’ll be even more in-sync, motivated and excited than before.
Moroccan Word of the Month: Ijtimaa
The current global situation puts face-to-face interaction on hold for many of us around the world. But even in these times of distance, we hope to shed light on the ways we can stay connected and engaged with one another, making our Moroccan word of the month, Ijtimaa, meaning a gathering of people. While for the time being getting together and cross-cultural connection might not look like hopping on a plane, we hope to do our part at EM to connect the world in any way we can. While you’re working from home or looking for a new hobby, check out our spotify playlist and learn some of our team’s favorite Moroccan songs. Or scroll through our instagram and facebook with future travel companions to check out vibrant scenes of Morocco. And when the time is right, we can’t wait to welcome you to Morocco and enjoy an Ijtimaa in person!
Featured Experience: Royal Hot Air Balloon Ride
Just outside of Marrakech, there is a spectacular and unique early morning activity on offer. The Royal Hot Air Balloon Ride starts before sunrise as you drive outside Marrakech to the launch site. You’ll be welcomed with some Moroccan tea and then board your private hot air balloon.
Rising above the city, farmlands, and mountains at sunrise, you’ll see Morocco from a whole new perspective. Making the experience even more unique is that breakfast is served on board as you admire the 360-degree views from your table. This might just be the most memorable breakfast ever.
Featured Event: Essaouira Gnaoua and World Music Festival
Gnawa refers to people as well as a style of music. In Morocco, you can participate in the sacred traditions of Afro-Moroccan musical groups well-known to the country at the annual Gnaoua and World Music Festival. The port city of Essaouira plays host annually to this celebration centered around music traditions, culture and art. This year, the festival stretched from Thursday, June 20th, through Sunday, June 23rd and featured headliners like Susheela Raman, Moh! Kouyaté, Tinariwen, and Baloji. The lineup does not discriminate, however, for it features contemporary funk, jazz, soul and blues artists from around and beyond the continent too. The festival involves the entire city as performances take place on stages throughout Essaouira, from docks, to squares, to city streets. At the festival, as well as year-round, guests can tour sites rich in Gnawa culture, meet local kuyu (Gnawa dancers) and maalem (masters) of the traditional melodies, and learn the craft and significance of the guembri instrument through workshops. This photo features our team participating in a lively gnawa workshop, which we can organize for you during your stay.
Featured Property: Luxury Desert Camps
Spending a night in the Sahara is on many people's bucket lists and one way to make it even more memorable is to spend it at a luxury tented camp in the middle of the dunes. We work some very special and unique camps in both the Erg Chebbi and Erg Lihoudi dunes. A stay at either property starts with a camel ride through the dunes to camp. Then spend your evening by a campfire, dining on Berber delicacies and enjoying a performance by a Gnawa band. After stargazing to your heart’s content, head into your private tent with a bathroom en-suite, hot water, and a plush bed. Finally, enjoy a delicious breakfast and spectacular sunrise at a table perched on the top of the dunes. It is "glamping" at it’s very best and will make for a night you’ll never forget!
