location & map
The Moroccans know their country as Maghrib. In Arabic, the word means ‘sunset’ or ‘west,’ acknowledging the Kingdom’s place as the most western of the Arabic countries. Bordered in the north by the Mediterranean Sea (Spain is only an hour’s ferry ride away) and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco is blessed with a long coastline and scenic beaches. Add to that four dramatic mountain ranges and the great oases and dunes of the Sahara, and you have a subtropical land of remarkable geographic and climatic diversity. At 4,165 metres high in the High Atlas Mountains, Mount Toubkal is the third highest peak in Africa.
Most international flights to Morocco fly into Casablanca. Frequent daily air service connects Casablanca and Marrakech. Direct flights to Marrakech are available from Paris, London, Munich, Lisbon and other major European cities. Please check with your travel agent or through the Internet as new flights are being added all the time.
Amanjena provides complimentary transfers from Marrakech airport (a 20-minute journey) and Casablanca airport (for guests staying three-nights or more), which is approximately 2½ hours away.
