Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are traveling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travelers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travelers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your vacation not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are traveling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are traveling through. All solo travelers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travelers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Whilst using public transport is the most sustainable way of traveling, in Morocco it’s not always possible to. Aside from good train connections between major cities, it’s often tricky to reach more rural and remote places by bus or train. Although we only use private transport on this trip, we do our utmost to ensure our vehicles are the right size for our small groups. For instance, we wouldn’t opt for a 16-seater van if we only have five people traveling with us. Another great way to minimise the effect of our transportation on the environment is by walking and avoiding the use of fuel altogether. From the third to the sixth day of this tour we only travel on foot, which allows our travelers to become fully immersed in the local culture.

We also encourage passengers to use refillable water bottles and our leaders will suggest purchasing bigger bottles of water to store in our vehicle whilst on the road.

With the help of our Moroccan suppliers, we also contract local specialists to run all our activities on this adventure. Before signing them up, we’ll always make sure that these individuals share our philosophy and stance on important environmental issues. Therefore, you can be sure that your local guide will never contribute to the problem of waste management.

The Impacts of this Trip

This women’s only expedition is designed to bring different worlds together. Allowing females from various backgrounds to participate in many activities, some of which are only accessible to women because of local customs and laws. By taking part in a Berber makeup workshop, helping out with every day activities such as farming and Moroccan breakfast preparations, travelers and hosts will have a great opportunity to learn from one another.

A very important change we’ve started to implement in Morocco is the rise in female leaders. Until now there was literally a handful of qualified female leaders and only one qualified female mountain guide in the whole country. But by putting some pressure on the authorities, we were able to enrol more female leaders in official courses scheduled and run by the Moroccan government. This enables us to assure this profession is becoming open to the women of Morocco. It’s also worth mentioning that this expedition is always run by a female tour leader, which wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago.

This trip is entirely managed by our Destination Management Company in Morocco, who live and breathe our environmental values. For instance, they recycle in their offices (something that isn’t currently common practise in Morocco), hold clean-up treks in the Atlas Mountains and host volunteer days in villages around Marrakech to help build water channelling systems for the local communities living there.

The region of Morocco we’re traveling through remains very traditional, unlike cosmopolitan Marrakech, industrial Casablanca or the north of the country. Therefore, it receives less tourists. This means it’s important for travelers to understand how to behave in such an environment and how to show respect to the local communities and their traditions. We pre-educate women traveling on this trip as what to wear, what to expect from local culture (i.e. bargaining) and customs (i.e. baksheesh – tipping). We also explain how to behave during the most important religious festivals and periods in order to show respect (i.e. Ramadan, Eid Al Adha). However, the most important way to show respect is to have a local leader on each departure. Someone who acts as a bridge between western females and local communities. Someone who understands both worlds and can help to bring them together in the most responsible way. And most importantly a female leader who will also understand the specifics of such a special expedition.
