Introduction to the Native Languages
Take home more than souvenirs. Learn a little bit of the native Berber language in the Tamazight dialect or pick up a bit of spoken Arabic. A few words and phrases can make a big difference when communicating with the locals who will appreciate your efforts in learning about their culture. Presented informally, these little lessons can literally open doors for travellers in Morocco.
Morocco has a rich history of producing delicious, all-natural local honey. Discover the traditional apiaries and taste something a world apart from what you get at home. Richer and sweeter than anything available in the shops, this is honey as it once was, made from free-roaming bees using pollen from fragrant rooftop gardens.
