Zagora holidays represent sheer escapism from manic cities and lively streets. The natives of the trading post of Morocco stick to tradition, immersing visitors in the rich customs of the country. Although Zagora doesn’t play host to as many monuments as the capital Rabat, Moroccan culture in Zagora manifests in a more direct sense, with ceremonial gatherings, markets and desert expeditions taking the front seat.
If greenery rather than golden sand is your preferred environment, the romantic Vallee du Draa is the place to head. Palm trees and foliage populate the area, unique to the surrounding areas such as Marrakech and Fez. You can also see how the locals live as small villages are on the fringes of Vallee du Draa, where the tradition is truly preserved and nurtured. The preservation is furthered when the native spirit comes to life during the Moussem of Sufi Moulay Abdelkader Jilali. The religious festival sees the Sufi Jilali brotherhood journey through Tangier and Zagora complete with hand held drums and religious chanting, a must-see for those looking for a real taste of Morocco on their holidays in Zagora.
