From the Sahara to the Sea
Join Kenneth Park as he traverses the Kingdom of Morocco, from the bustling souqs of Marrakesh to the sands of the Sahara in Erfoud, and up across the Atlas Mountains to the Mediterranean port of Tangier.
Timed to begin with the Marrakesh Biennale, follow in the footsteps of Mediæval camel caravans as you make your way to the Grand Market of Marrakesh, where dancing boys, snake charmers, peddlers and magicians vie to entertain the passers-by. Cross the High Atlas Mountains and travel to the desert towns of Ouarzazate and Erfoud, before turning north again to Fez, whose madrasas and ancient university have seen it dubbed ‘the Athens of Africa’. Visit the artisanal workshops of Tétouan and uncover the risqué and unconventional literary heritage of Tangier, the den of Tennessee Williams and William S. Borroughs, before venturing down the Atlantic Coast to the country’s capital, Rabat.
