About Morocco

Morocco is often considered to be the ‘Gateway to Africa’. It is a kingdom situated in North
Africa just across the Strait of Gibraltar, across from Spain. It is surrounded by Algeria and Mauritania on land and the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean by water. The legendry city of Casablanca, made famous in books and movies, is one of the most favorite stops during your Luxury holiday package to Morocco.
