The Western Kingdom!
MYSTIQUE OF MOROCCO

April 3–15, 2020

Dear Travelers:
Magical moments await you on this wonderful adventure to explore the mystique of the Kingdom of Morocco! Morocco possesses a wealth of opportunities for the traveler, spectacular landscapes and fascinating cultural experiences! We invite you to join us on this incredible adventure!

We will start our journey in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, with a visit to the Oudais Kasbah and the elaborately decorated mausoleum of King Mohammed V. We will
then discover cultural and archaeological sites from the Imperial city of Meknes to Volubilis, the best preserved Roman town in North Africa. Explore kasbahs, medinas,
and souks, and learn about a 1,200-year-old university heritage important to all of Western Civilization!

We will then cross the Atlas Mountains en route to the Sahara Desert with stops for spectacular photos. The majestic canyon of the Ziz Gorge rivals the Grand Canyon and we will also see the Todra and Dades Gorges. In the desert, we will experience the berber way of life as it has existed for centuries from making bread to preparing and
drinking mint tea.

We will then follow “the route of 1,000 Kasbahs” to reach the desert city of Quarzazate, an oasis on the edge of
the Sahara Desert. We will continue to the Kashbah village of Ksour of Ait Ben Haddou, a World Heritage Site, nestled within ochrecolored mud walls.

Our final destination is the fabled and exotic Marrakech. From magnetic Marrakech to the ancient Phoenician coastal city of Magador (now called Essaouira), Morocco offers rich cultural experiences and a fascinating heritage.

We hope you will be able to join us!

Sincerely,

Margaret M. Betchart
