Morocco on many people’s mind is Lawrence of Arabia, a man with a mission as he rode his camel defiantly through the endless golden sand dunes of the vast Sahara—a hero with a purpose as only Peter O’Toole could bring to life.

It’s inconspicuous—and totally genius
Traversing the old caravan route between Marrakech and Timbuktu, what appears to be a massive sand castle suddenly comes in to view as though it were a mirage appearing on the horizon. But this is no mirage – it’s the ancient ksar Aït Benhaddou. A collection of half a dozen mud brick kasbahs that blend in with the surrounding red-orange sand and High Atlas Mountains, it’s one of the most striking and best preserved ksars in Morocco. It’s also a UNESCO world heritage site and well-worth making the day trip to Aït-Ben-Haddou from Marrakech.
It’s present day Morocco, though it feels like we’ve stepped back in time. Or maybe even in to the set of movies like The Mummy.
Traders carrying gold, spices and slaves between Marrakech and Timbuktu passed right by Aït-Ben-Haddou. Aït-Ben-Haddou and kasbahs like it were strategic stops for the traders traveling along the old caravan route. There were so many kasbahs that the traders could stop at along their treacherous journey, the route became known as the Road of a Thousand Kasbahs. Though many of the kasbahs lay in ruins today.

Morocco is a pretty incredible country to explore. Now, I know I say that to lots of places, but I truly mean it! It’s one of those countries that’s so much more than just the Souks of Marrakech, with so many of the best things to do in Morocco outside of the city itself.
From the unspoilt Atlas Mountains, gorging on all the tagines, visiting the blue village of Chefchaouen and seeing the red arches of Legzira – you’ll be spoilt for choice.
You’ll have the best time exploring, just remember to plan ahead and gorge on all the amazing food and tasty sweet tea (I swear, I was on a sugar high throughout our whole trip). Anyway, before I continue rambling, take a look at some of the very best things to do in Morocco.
You’re going to love it.
