Morocco Travel Photography: 35 Photos To Inspire You To Visit


From spiralling medinas to open desert plains, Morocco’s diversity will captivate you. We spent two weeks souk-ing up all that Morocco had to offer. Our Morocco travel photography diary shows 35 of our favourite photos from our 10 day trip with Intrepid Travel. We started in Marrakech before winding our way through the Atlas mountains. There was a brief stop in popular filming location Ait Benhaddou en route to the Sahara Desert. After a short camel ride and an overnight stay in a nomad desert camp, we sought ocean relief in the seaside town of Essaouira. After bidding goodbye to our tour group, we jumped on a train northwards towards the Rif Mountains to see the magical Blue Pearl, the city of Chefchaouen.

Morocco is a photographer’s technicolour playground, with flashes of colour in every corner and crevice. Seekers of reds and oranges need to head to the Saharan plains where the sun sinks into a valley of undulating sand dunes. Those after cooler tones should explore the cities of Essaouira and Chefchaouen where you’ll delight in capturing 50 shades of blue. If you haven’t travelled to Morocco yet, make sure to check out our our useful things to know before you travel to Morocco.

When taking photos in Morocco, it’s important to request permission from locals if shooting portraits and respect their decision when they decline. If you’re travelling with a local guide, they can assist if there are language barriers. Make sure to also carry camera cleaning equipment! The sand and the dust will undoubtedly cloud your lenses, particularly in the Sahara Desert.

If you’re only going to be staying in the big cities, you’ll find plenty of thrill and adventure as bustling medinas and souks spring to life. Morocco’s cities offer some exciting cultural experiences and traditional cuisine. Barter with nomads and berbers for your Moroccan homewares or retreat inside hidden oases in renovated riads and secret gardens. Eat your weight in tagine, bread and olives before reminiscing about your trip over your upteenth glass of mint tea.

We hope you enjoy our 35 Morocco photos as much as we do. May they spark your wanderlust and inspire your own Moroccan adventure!
