I have been enjoying reading all the forums about Morocco and have a few questions I need help with.
My husband and I are going for 2 1/2 - 3 weeks in September (we are flexible time wise).
We plan to fly to Marrakesh, spend a few days there then hire a car and make our way to Chefchaouen, I'm not sure where we will fly back from yet. We enjoy wonderful scenery and learning something of the culture of the country we are visiting.
This is what I've been thinking of doing, please can you tell me if it sounds reasonable
-Marrakesh for 3 days.
-Todra and Dades Gorges, I've looked on google maps and read reviews but can't work out the best way to see the gorges and carry on to Imilchil.
Is the best way to drive to the Todra Gorge, have a look then stay the night in Tinghir, is that possible in a day from Marrakesh? The next day back-track to Boulmalne Dades and go up the Dades Gorge to Imilchil? The Dades Gorge looks a tortuous route and slow going so would it be best to stay somewhere en route to Imichil?
Is this possible in a car or is a 4x4 required? We are experienced 4x4 drivers so that's not a problem.
- Azrou (after reading it's one of Tim Cullis's favourite places in Morocco) and spend time there looking at the surrounding area. Advice on the best route to Azrou from Imilchil would be great.
-Fez for a few days with days trips to Volubulis, Moulay Idriss and a cooking class.
-Chefchaouen wasn't on my list of places to go but I see a lot of people recommend going there so I thought we could spend a day there..
- London from the nearest city to Chefchaouen that flies there.
