13 nights in Morocco-itinerary help please

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be visiting Morocco for the first time in April/May 2016 and I need some advice. We are spending 3 nights in Madrid to get over jet lag and will then fly to Morocco in late April. This the itinerary I have devised so far, but would like some input from the Morocco experts!
3 nights Marrakesh- possibly a day trip to Essaouira.
3-4 nights dessert trip including a drive to Fes- Desert Majesty seems to have good reviews on the forum and has a trip like that.
3 nights Meknes- I think we would prefer a lower key than Fes and would use Meknes as our base to explore the area. I am not sure I would enjoy staying in the Fes Medina (I loved Istanbul but did not enjoy the Grand Bazaar at all, if that can be compared).
2-3 nights Rabat area- we are interested in birding and I have read that Moulay Bousselham and the lagoon around there is great for birding. I don't have a clue about the logistics, but Villa Bea on the coast looks like a nice place to stay.
Rabat to Casablanca to fly to Paris for 5 nights. Would prefer not to stay in Casablanca and hope to get an afternoon flight to Paris, if feasible.
We plan to hire a driver after we arrive in Fes/Meknes (neither of us wants to drive).
Questions:
Is this itinerary trying to see too much?
Is it crazy to stay in Meknes instead of Fes?
Does anyone know about roads to Moulay Bousselham and if that is worthwhile, other than birding?
Should we reverse the trip and Fly to Casa first and out of Marrakesh- Our flights to and from Europe are booked, but not the flights to Morocco.
Thank you for any help!
