Going to Morocco today is much easier. There is an easy direct flight from London to Marrakesh. 3 hours flight and you find yourself in another planet, far from the western one. You can aim to a different Morocco, completely unexpected by avoiding the usual routes and going to the places where the locals use to spend their free time.
If your aim is to discover some of the natural sites of this country, not only the Sahara, the mosques or the spas and hamman not only Marrakesh which is undoubtedly a charming town with its old Medina and its surreal huge square full of life, colors and music then it is worth to visit the Palmeraie, huge desert full of palm trees and the Atlas mountains, where you can ski and where soon will be built the most prestigious ski station of Africa.
And then the wonderful Ouzouad's cascades where you can surprisingly find an amazing natural waterfalls and a park with a breathtaking view. A really unique place.
