    Are water purification tablets necessary?

    The EU recently banned the use of iodine tablets, therefore these will no longer be provided on trek. We advise you buy your own purification tablets in the UK (Biox Aqua drops are good) and take them with you. Bottled water can be purchased throughout most parts of the trip, yet please note recycling is not fully established in a lot of areas.

    What are the facilities like at the Gite?

    The gite, although in a stunning location, is in a very remote area and as such, facilites are slightly more limited than you may find in a normal hotel. The term 'gite' in Morocco denotes simple rural accommodation, like a refuge or hostel, as opposed to the superior French definition. The rooms are dormitory style with mattresses placed directly on the floor and are often mixed sex so you will be sharing with other people from your group. Although blankets are provided, you should bring your own sleeping bag.

    Thanks to electricity being linked to Tijhza Valley in 2004, the gite now has lighting and European two pin plug sockets for recharging camera batteries etc. There are four flush toilets and two Asian-style toilets, hot and cold showers plus a washroom with basic washing facilities. There is likely to be more than one group staying at the gite at any one time, but there is plenty of room. Although the facilities may be basic, the welcome is warm!

    Breakfast will generally be porridge, bread, jam, coffee/fruit juice, while the evening meal will be a tasty local stew with vegetables (known as a tagine). You can buy chocolate bars/snacks, soft drinks etc at the Gite as well - all reasonably priced!You are allowed one hot shower each day, and if you require additional showers, you pay for these (approx £1).You do need to take a sleeping bag but there are extra blankets available at the Gite if you are cold. Thick mattresses are provided and you sleep on these on the floor "Moroccan style"!

    What are the temperatures likely to be trekking in the Atlas mountains?

    Expect it to be hot during the day with strong sun, mid to high 20s is the norm. However, there can be a cool breeze and you will need extra layers when you stop. As ever in the mountains be prepared for quick, unpredictable changes in the weather and have appropriate clothing for this. At night temperatures can drop to zero.

    Tips from staff who have done the Atlas Panorama

    Money
    I just changed my money at the airport when I arrived, and then I think topped up at an ATM towards the end in Marrakech, which was quite easy. It will depend on what the leader/ group choose to do but you'll either change into Dirhams at the airport, or the following morning (since you usually arrive in quite late) somewhere close to the hote. Sometimes they also stop on the way out of the city, but you'll definitely get it done quite quickly. You can use debit cards (let your bank know in advance) but I wouldn't rely on them 100%, just in case.

     

    Clothing
    I would take one fleece or jacket (how heavy depends on the time of year you're going) with layers underneath, then you can add as you like if it gets cold. So you normally take a selection of long and short sleeve tops, and just stick a few on top of each other if it feels chilly. Light, breathable layers is always the way to go, and means you don't have to pack any big heavy items.

     

    Do I need to cover up?
    As long as you don't have bare shoulders, you'll be fine. So a t-shirt is ok, but not a strappy top. This applies to when walking as well. Shorts are fine, as long as they are down to your knees. The villagers, while still traditional, are used to seeing tourists in the area and won't be too shocked. Marrakech is a lot more relaxed and, while you still need to be aware of local culture, it wouldn't be as conservative as the mountains.

     

    What can I take for the project?
    You can get a list of what would be useful here.


    Weather
    While Marrakech stays hot pretty much all year round, it does get cooler in the mountains. It will always really depend on local conditions at the time of year you're there but it might be low teens at night during summer maybe, even single figures if it's a cold snap. Winter departures will be down to single figures at night usually. You won't really be out anywhere at night (maybe the veranda at the gite) so you don't need to pack for those temperatures primarily. You should be comfortable in a 3 season bag.

     

    Food
    Normally you take a packed lunch out from the gite, and you have dinner there as well. The other days you will probably eat out with the group in Marrakech, and also have a lunch on the road driving to Marrakech.
    I'm afraid there is no beer at the gite, and it was a pretty dry week apart from the start and end in Marrakech.

    Is Marrakech easy to get around?

    You will find taxis everywhere but the only way to travel around the city and soak up the atmosphere is to jump in a Calesh! If there’s one thing, you do make sure you enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride around the old walled city or medina. Your hotel can arrange for a caleche to collect you pick one up from the ‘taxi rank’ at the entrance to the Djemma el Fna or main square.

    Anything I shouldn't miss in Marrakech?

    Marrakech is truly a taste of Morocco at it's best. Grab a seat in the huge main square, the Djemma el Fna, and watch the world go by while sipping some mint tea. It's been a place of entertainment for locals for hundreds of years and is packed with everything from food stalls to snake charmers! The Majorelle and Menara gardens are also well worth a visit, and offer some peace in the middle of this hectic city.

    At night, anyone looking for somewhere to chill out in the heart of the medina should try the Café Arabe, which has some of the best modern Moroccan food around, as well as great views from their rooftop terrace!

    What is Moroccan food like?

    Moroccan cuisine is very diverse, with many influeneces due to the interaction of Morocco with the outside world for centuries. The cuisine of Morocco is a mix of Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean and Arab influences. The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous, usually eaten with beef or lamb. Chicken is also very common and the importance of seafood is increasing, especially on the coast. Vegetarians won't have any problems either, although choice can be more limited in remote locations.

    The common and tasty tajine is everywhere, a mouth watering stew with meat and vegetables. Green tea with mint is the drink of choice, and you can pick up bocadillos (sandwiches) from street stalls everywhere - you won't go hungry!

    What is the best way to take money to Morocco?

    The Moroccan currency is the Dirham and cannot be imported or exported, as it is a 'closed' currency. We suggest you take your personal spending money in good condition notes, either in £, Euros or US$. Local costs - it depends! - £2-4 per day to cover postcards, small souvenirs, soft drinks etc; £15 a day for food is fine (if it's not included). Danuta Janik - Morocco Operations

    What kind of clothing is best in a Muslim country?

    You are visiting a predominantly Muslim country, therefore you should dress modestly at all times when visiting cultural sites, and there may also be times when you are asked to 'cover up'. During your trip the tour leader will always advise you on appropriate dress for each day's activities.  If you are asked to 'cover up', you'll need to cover your shoulders, arms and legs. We recommend packing lightweight trousers or a long skirt, and a long sleeved shirt. Women may also be required to cover their hair with a scarf if entering a mosque or religious quarters. Jim Eite - Product Manager

    Will Ramadan affect my trip?

    Please note that the holy month of Ramadan will take place from the 20th of July to the 18th of August 2012 (dates can shift slightly). This is a time when followers of Islam do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. This can sometimes affect the opening hours of certain tourist sites. However we will ensure that that the itinerary is affected as little as possible if you travel during this period. Food and drink is available to tourists during the day.

    How do I join the Departure Lounge (forum) in the Exodus Community?

    To view the Forums, including the Departure Lounge, you do not need to be member of the Exodus Community, simply click on the Community link at the top of every page and read the posts in their respective sections by entering the Departure Lounge, or one of the other options in the list on the page.

    To join in a discussion, if already a member, please sign in to your Exodus website account (not related to booking reservations) to contribute to the Forum. If you are not a member of the Exodus Community, you can register by clicking the 'Sign in' at the top of every webpage and select ‘Register’ within the drop down panel.

    When viewing the Forum area of the website, as you scroll through the 'Rooms' which are set out by 'travel months' during the current year within the Departure Lounge. You can then select the 'month' of intended travel, then filter the list of trips that have already been created by fellow travellers to see if your trip is listed. If the trip you are travelling on is not in the list, you can start the process by clicking on the 'Post new forum topic' link above the list on the same page. If you do see your trip within the list, select it to view the 'discussion' by your fellow travellers and you can join in by completing the 'Post your comment' section below the discussion thread.

    Please note: there might be slight a delay before your post/comment appears as intended because we moderate what is published on the website.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
