Sustainable Travel — How to Travel Through Morocco Responsibly

In line with Bookmundi’s vision, we wish to provide our travelers with a sustainable travel experience through Morocco. As part of this effort, we carbon offset any Morocco tour that you purchase through us. Read more details about Bookmundi's carbon offsetting efforts.

Here’s what you can do to travel to Morocco more responsibly:

  • Carbon-offset your transport to Morocco via Qantas. The moment your tour starts in Morocco, and if you have purchased your tour through Bookmundi, we will carbon-offset your tour from its starting point to its ending point.
  • AESVT is a Moroccan organization that is involved in the protection of the environment and environmental education. The organization focuses on the development of scientific projects for the protection of the environment, sustainable development, and preservation of health.
  • The Environmental Programme Morocco (PGPE) aims to improve prospects for Morocco’s younger generation through green jobs. These objectives include making economic production more resource-efficient and resolving the problem of managing hazardous waste in an environmentally friendly manner. 

Morocco Travel Tips and Insight

  • Dress appropriately. Morocco is a conservative country, so it is important to cover your shoulders and upper arms, cleavage, and knees. Cover your head with a scarf inside mosques. Wearing sunglasses also tends to deflect unwanted attention.
  • If you are shopping in the markets or medinas, learn to haggle. Haggling is an integral part of Moroccan culture and is expected in most places.
  • Avoid going anywhere with locals offering free tours — you may end up completely lost and pressed to spend money. Explore on your own or hire a guide from a reputable company.
