Rock carvings in South Morocco
In remote areas of southern Morocco lie boulders and fractured rock strata covered with animal carvings; some domesticated species typical of the open areas of stony desert (hammada) and the sand dunes (erg) of the Sahara, along with other more obscure symbols.
250 sites have been found in which elephants, rhinos, lions, antelopes, gazelle, ostriches as well as cattle, horses and camels have all been immortalised on rocks scattered in an incredible landscape which now no longer harbours most of these creatures.
This trip takes you to visit some of these unusual, little known and sadly unprotected sites. As you travel, you will pass oasis towns with their palm groves and buildings blending in with the hues of the desert; gold, pink and orange walls, spectacular mountain scenery, kasbahs and gardens of almonds, olives, pomegranates, figs and walnuts.
