Instagrams of the Week: Morocco

January 8, 2016 Mark Bonington

The people of Morocco have always lived in tune to the landscape around them. Despite being acclaimed by manifold cultural influences leaving their mark on the country, the desert nomads, the spice traders and the carpet makers have remained staples of this land, keeping traditional ways of life present as Morocco moves forward with the modern world.

And like Morocco’s famous mint tea, this mix means travellers are welcomed with a refreshing blend of the intensely exotic and comfortingly familiar. The proof? Just look below!

#Gadv traveller @kari.clarke watches the vast Sahara Desert turn gold in the light of the setting sun.

@guptapranjal12 visits the Royal Stables of Sultan Moulay Ismail in Meknes. This grand construction was built to house the sultan’s 12,000 horses (yes, you read that right!).

Marrakesh is a city for all the senses! @lamisplanet samples the herbs and spices for sale in one of the city’s souks.

Traveller @aereandria stands at the golden gates of the Royal Palace in Fez. These cedar doors are decorated with bronze patterns and surrounded by colourful mosaic tiles.

@ tiagohiggs stops to reflect on the winding paths through the Atlas Mountains. Many Berber villages can be found tucked away in the canyons and ravines.
