Draft itinerary for Morocco

Jump to last reply

We (couple in our early 50s) are considering a trip to Morocco next year. We are very flexible in terms of when to go, but I think April-May would be a good time for what we have in mind. Please read below and let me know what you think. We are interested in nature, wildlife, unique experiences, good food, photography, easy short hikes
We will have about 3 weeks and here is a first draft:

Day 1, 2: Land in Casablanca and get over jet lag the next day, see the mosque
Day 3 – Rent a car and drive to Chefchaouen
Day 4, 5 – Chefchaouen + a day trip to Akchour waterfall
Day 6 – Drive to Fes with a stop in Volubilis
Day 7 – Day trip to Meknes and Azrou for monkeys (are they wild?), then drop off car
Day 8, 9 – Fes
Day 10 – Fly to Marrakesh
Day 11, 12 – Marrakesh (this way we don’t have to worry about a car in Fes and Marrakesh)
Day 13 – 19 (7 days and here I need more help) – pick up another car + drive some sort of loop to cover Ouzoud waterfalls, Erg Chebbi , Todra Gorge, Dades, Ouarzazate, Ait Ben Haddou, and if possible, end with a 2 nights stay at Kasbah Du Toubkal.
Day 20 – drive to El Jadida
Day 21 – El Jadida
Day 22 – Drive to Casablanca and fly back home

How does this all sound? Should we add a day in either Fes or Marrakesh? Based on what I read, we don’t need the extra day in Casablanca, but I think it would be nice to rest before the long drive to Chefchaouen. Let me know what you think and what you would do differently. Thanks.
