VISAS AND PERMITS
Visas for entry into Morocco are not required by nationals of the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and most EU countries.
The currency in Morocco is the dirham (MDH) but you cannot get dirham outside of Morocco - therefore take UK sterling,
Euro or US$ and exchange on arrival at Marakesh Ariport.
GROUP AND LEADERS
A fully qualified UK leader will accompany all groups of four or more passengers.
He/she will be assisted by an experienced Moroccan leader.
The weather should be pleasant during the day with cooler evenings and nights. Morocco is very hot from spring to autumn, the hottest months being June to August. The higher you are the cooler it will be. Walkers should realize however that weather in the high mountains is
unpredictable and should be prepared for this. It will be cold on the early starts and in the evenings at altitude in early and late season.
LANGUAGE AND TIME
Language: Arabic and Berber are the official languages, but most people
also speak French. English is spoken by our Marrakech representatives and most of our Moroccan guides, but it will be very basic.
Time: GMT/BST. Morocco has summer time as in UK, but the changeover is on different dates to us.
