Welcome to Central Morocco
Berbers, famed for their hospitality, are another of the region's great treasures. Family-run guesthouses and lavish kasbahs roll out the welcome mat, spread decadent feasts and introduce out-of-towners to the great wonders of Atlas living. Speaking of wonders, central Morocco has them in spades, from thundering waterfalls and fossil-strewn plateaus to ancient citadels and snowy mountain passes, plus North Africa's highest ski slopes. Though you could spend weeks exploring this stretch of Morocco, there are also some easy getaways – to both desert and mountains – from nearby Marrakesh.
