Morocco Geography

Prices from: £339

Morocco is geographically located in Northern Africa along the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.  It is a wonderful destination for all the curious geographers out there and can offer endless educational opportunities.

Explore the diversity this country has to offer from the bustling city of Marrakech.
Let your feet free on the sandy dunes of the Sahara Desert where you can truly appreciate the spectacular landscapes.  With a great welcoming, captivating culture and refreshing cuisines, you’ll never want to leave!

The topography of Morocco varies as its northern coast and interior regions are mountainous, while its coast features fertile plains where much of the country's agriculture takes place.  There are also valleys interspersed between Morocco's mountainous areas.  The highest point in Morocco is Jebel Toubkal which rises to 13,665 feet (4,165 m), while its lowest point is Sebkha Tah which is -180 feet (-55 m) below sea level.
