The exotic, varied landscapes of Morocco lure many tourists to this African nation each year. The country offers a myriad of scenes—from mountains to desert to coast. Visitors enjoy scenic, richly colored views of the High Atlas peaks and Saharan dunes. Jagged coastlines, roaring waterfalls and stunning coastal towns charm visitors. Travelers interested in responsible tourism can enjoy watching the world go by in traditional small town cafes, wander through the bustling city of Casablanca and explore the historic sites at Volubilis, Fes or Meknes.
Seasoned international travelers and first-time voluntourists alike can find unique opportunities to create a big impact on Morocco’s communities.

Many of the Moroccan non-profit groups are working on improving the education and opportunities for the local youth—especially those living in remote Berber communities.
