day trips with a child

Hello

My husband and I are going to Marrakech in September with our 4 year old. We would like to take some trips for instance Essouira. Is it feasible to do that in one day or would we have to stay overnight? Also our son loves animals so is there a zoo or wildlife park in Marrakech we can visit?

Thank you,

Saffronlondon

Have a look at this link which is about Jarjeer donkey sanctuary, it would make a great day out.

Essaouira is best experienced as an overnight trip.

If you go to the Menara Gardens there are usually camels around the entrance as well.

I often do Essaouira as a daytrip, you need to take an early coach to make it worthwhile though as it is a 3hr journey each way.

Thanks for the information guys!

Essaouira: can you recommend a good tour company that does day trips please?

Also can I ask if swimming pools are warm enough to use in late September as my four year old is rather fussy!

Cheers

Yes swimming pools are warm enough. Ensure your child showers before getting in the pool. Washing the sweat off will help him acclimatise.

You can visit Essaouira in a day. Take an early Supratours bus there, and a late bus back to make the most of your time.
