Justine Tyerman surprises herself with her daring exploits in Morocco… I travelled undercover in Morocco. Being a bit of a coward, I was a little concerned about developments in North Africa and the Middle East. And just to make me feel even more anxious about my forthcoming most adventurous trip to date, my well-travelled boss’s parting words to me were “never identify yourself as a journalist in the part of that world”.
The luxury hotel ‘La Mamounia’ is located at a short walk from Marrakech’s city centre. It is said to offer one of Africa’s most atmospheric spa & wellness setups. Next time around I should free up some more time in order to check with my own eyes ;-)
The ‘Djemaa el Fna’ in Marrakech is one of the UNESCO’s ‘masterpieces of the oral and intangible heritages of humanity’. Street performers, fortune-tellers and charlatans offer their arts between food and beverage stalls.
Amelkis Golf Club has a splendid kasbah style clubhouse with a terrace overlooking the course and the majestic Atlas mountains. Enjoy a well deserved drink after a good round of golf!
The Palmeraie Golf Palace & Spa is located in Marrakech’s outskirts at a short 20 minutes drive from the modern Marrakech airport. With 27 golf holes the hotel offers a perfect base for golfers.
