From the coastal wetlands, over the High Atlas to the orange dunes of the Erg Chebbi along the edge of the Sahara – Morocco boasts the richest birdlife in North Africa. Endemic and specialty birds include African Marsh Owl, Double-spurred Francolin, Moussier’s Redstart, Levaillant’s Green Woodpecker, African Desert Warbler and the critically endangered Northern Bald Ibis. Our tour coincides with the height of spring migration as numerous passerines head for Europe. A dozen species of larks and ten species of wheatears and redstarts are likely as we explore most of this fascinating country. We also visit the Roman ruins at Volubilis, the medina and medersa in Fez, the world heritage site at Ait Benhaddou and the souk in Taroudant.

“This was so much more than a birding tour; it was truly a cultural experience.”
“Adrian, having spent a month in Morocco almost 40 years ago I was thrilled to return with you. You are a terrific guide; you know Morocco, its birds, customs, people, places, language and cuisine. The enjoyment you provided surpassed my highest expectations. It was fun to see you greeting old friends there with hugs, and your comfort and ease were infectious to participants. Just as enjoyable were your hilarious sense of humor, and the fun our group had together exploring this beautiful and timeless country.”
