High Atlas Mountains
Our most popular excursion brings you to an unspoilt valley in the High Atlas. An opportunity to explore the life of the Berbers during a 3-hour walk trough Berber villages, olive groves and serene mountain scenery. Lunch and private driver is included.
We also organise treks for several days with accommodation by locals. An unforgettable experience!
Guided Walk in the Medina
Riad Saba offers a guided orientation walk in the Medina with the Swedish and Moroccan guide Jamal. Jamal is fluent in English, Moroccan and Swedish and holds a Bachelor Degree in History and a Master Degree in Development Studies. He has a special interest in the social and cultural history of the Medina and will tell you many interesting details during the tour. Places of interest , such as historical sites, monuments and good places for shopping will be pointed out during the walk.
This is the perfect way to get an sense of orientation in the hustle of bustle of the Medina!
Moroccan cookery course
The Moroccan cuisine is well known internationally and many of our guests at Riad Saba thoroughly enjoy our home cooking. It is possible to organise a few hours cookery course in the riad kitchen. The course begins with a little shopping trip to the local vegetable market.
The local hammams are rich in social significance and many Moroccans go at least once a week. Just like about everything else in Morocco, it is done with no thought of time or stress.
We can book treatments for you but ask you to tell us at least a week before your arrival. The best hammams get fully booked quickly. We can also offer hammam with a rubdown at our annex, the White House, just around the corner from Riad Saba.
Sahara, the greatest and hottest desert on earth is shared between 11 African countries. Although only a small part of Morocco is covered by desert, the Sahara trade has played an immense role, both economically and culturally.
Just as in the old “caravan days”, our dromedaries and nomad guides decide the pace and teach you how to move in the desert. You walk from one waterhole to the other and if you get tired you can have a ride on one of the dromedaries. We recommend to count at least 5 days for a good Sahara trek.
320 days of sun per year and a growing number of 18-hole golf courses within a 10-minute drive from the city, makes it worthwhile to bring a few golf clubs.
The oldest of the golf courses, Royal Golf Course, was built in the 1920s by the pasha of Marrakech. Winston Churchill is only one of many VIPs that played rounds here and it remains the favourite among members among the Moroccan royal family. Green fee prices around 42 euro. We are happy to book taxi and green fee time for our guests.
