Our guests about Morocco

We both had a great time with you Peter and Pieter, a really great time, and we'd love to return to Morocco soon. L&G Spain

Many thanks to both you Peter and to Pieter for your splendid and tireless efforts to make a splendid and memorable holiday for both of us. P&S UK

Many thanks for making the trip so enjoyable, giving us choices some of the time was good as it meant we could catch up with ourselves, I keep telling friends that seeing such a variety of desert was so different from what we expected as well as the wonderful colours and changing scenery made it something 
special - all in addition to the range of birds!! J&D UK

Moroccan Education Project

Can you help our ‘For the Birds’ education project for schools in southern Morocco?
for-the-birds_moroccoA very important aspect of our education programme is the provision of new or used binoculars. If you are buying a new pair, please consider donating your old ones to our project. We are also assisting some local wildlife guides who are desperate for used telescopes, so again if you are buying a new scope, please do consider donating your old one.
Any quantity of good quality children’s clothing, notebooks, drawing and or colouring books, pen sets, crayons and pencils (plus sharpeners) are all very welcome. If you would like to donate any of the afore mentioned items or wish to make a monetary donation, please do contact us for further details.

Latest Trip Report of Morocco

common-bulbul_webBird watching in Morocco. A winter’s birding tour in Morocco with the Andalucia Bird Society, the society’s first overseas tour! With 15 members, we toured the marshland habitats of the northwestern Atlantic coast of Morocco and sampled not only the varied birdlife of Morocco, but also to some extent gave ourselves a taste of this wonderful country. We were based in Asilah and made excursions to the Oued Tahadart flood plains, the lower Loukos marshes near Larache and ventured south to Moulay Bousselham and the large marsh and lagoon of Merja Zerga. The society were also on a mission to spread the word for the necessity of locals to keep a watch for Slender-billed Curlew and to this end the society donated a telescope to the local guide and guardian at the marshland of Merja Zerga. In all around 111 species were seen during the trip. It was an enormously successful and enjoyable tour.

Day One - 2nd of December
Our group met-up in Tarifa for departure to Tanger. The sea crossing was an easy affair and the only drawback was queuing on the ferry to have our entry stamps inserted in our passports. On the sea crossing some of the group saw Cory’s Shearwater and Northern Gannet with the more usual gull species plus a few Sandwich Tern near to the port of Tanger. We met our transport at the port and were soon bouncing our way through the maze of streets

peter3Peter Jones writes: I have been to and written about Morocco so many times and yet it never fails to leave me with impressions of wonder, not least of vast empty tranquil spaces where it is possible to be completely immersed in nature, like a grain of sand is to a desert so but am I in life! Such a grand landscape is presented with perspectives beyond words, from the towering High Atlas Mountains to endless rolling dunes of the Sahara, from Palm lined valleys to multi-coloured striated flat topped mountains; it is a place of unimaginable beauty. The country also has an added attraction and great bonus for me acting as it does as a bridge between the more southerly regions of Africa and Europe for migratory birds. Little wonder I am constantly drawn by the calling of this exotic place and also its people.
