Packing List

Dress Code

Although Morocco is a tolerant society, it’s advisable to dress respectfully if you do not wish to attract undue attention. This typically means covering your body between your knees and elbows.  i.e. trousers, long shorts or skirt to the knee (at least) and short-sleeved shirts or t-shirts.

In large cities, Moroccans can often dress as fashionably as they would in New York, London or Paris. Conversely, next to the fashionably clad you will also see women traditionally dressed in Derra (hood like a scarf that covers all the hair and is tied under chin). Men often prefer to wear a Djellaba (long-sleeved, ankle-length, flowing garment).

In rural areas, women usually wear traditional clothes and you are encouraged to dress more conservatively when touring.

In summer (April to October), loose clothing is comfortable in the heat and when travelling.

In spring and autumn (March, April and October), a warm fleece or jacket is recommended for chilly evenings, although days are usually warm and sunny.

In winter (December to February), warm clothing is essential. It is particularly cold at night in the desert and mountains.
