Traveling Morocco With Kids: Plan A Family Vacation

Traveling with children is always fun, but sometimes it is hard to know where to go or what to do. We have compiled a list of our favorite activities for families in Morocco.

Morocco is one of the most popular destinations for families looking to travel abroad. This country has so much to offer families who want to travel together. There are plenty of activities to do when you are there.

How about I Spy Treasure Hunt Experience?

Explore the ancient Medina with its winding alleys and mysterious corners by taking part in a treasure hunt in the souk. Your host will split you into teams and send you into the markets with a shopping list of products to find! I Spy Treasure Hunt is one of the top interactive activities for families that the kids always rave about.

Go on a Camel Ride.

Camel rides are an exciting way to see the sights of Morocco. You will find them in cities, Sahara Deserts, and towns across the country. A typical trip lasts between 30 minutes and two hours. Riders sit on the top of the camels while they take you to your destination. It is a fun activity for kids and adults alike.

Sandboarding in the Sahara Desert.

Sandboarding activity in Merzouga is another way to explore the dunes. Whether you have tried snowboarding, or skiing before, or even if you are a beginner, don't miss out on this fun activity when you are in the Sahara desert. Choose your dune and enjoy sliding down on your boards! 

Book a Culinary Experience.

Food Tours and Cooking Classes let your kids engage through tasting new foods, interacting with the locals, and learning new stories. Participating in a cooking class gives you and your kids the chance to make bread, assist with the main dish together, and eat the fruit of your work!

Include an Adventurous Activity.

If your kids are into Zip lining, Quad Biking, Dune Buggies, Side Cars, or other adventurous activities. Morocco is the land of adventurous experiences that fit all family levels.

Participate in one of the Hands-on Workshops.

Kids love, enjoy hands-on workshops, and creating something from scratch. Don't miss out on a drum-making workshop where your kids learn how to make their drums and paint them with the help of a local artisan. Or a Pottery Workshop where the artisan guides you and your kids to make pottery and create your work of art such as a small tagine, a mug, bowl, ashtray, vase…etc.

Here are some tips to help you plan your trip.

There are so many things to see and do in Morocco that it can be difficult to decide where to begin.
