Episode notes

Can travelling to Morocco be purpose-driven, conscientious, and responsible? We take a deep dive into this incredible destination with Intrepid Travel – a group adventure travel company and the world’s largest travel B Corporation. Recorded on location, join us on an audio adventure through the spice-filled souks and lively squares of Marrakech – and the surrounding areas, as we meet with local communities to discover how travel can be a force for good in Morocco. 

With distinctive cultural heritage, historic medinas, towering mountains and sweeping deserts, Morocco is one of the go-to destinations for curious travellers. 

This North African country is packed with nature, art, markets, museums and foodie finds and lively cities. It can be explored solo, with loved ones or as part of a group tour. Whatever your travel style, Morocco is a feast for the senses and the soul.

It’s become an increasingly popular destination over the years and according to the World Tourism Organisation, Tourism now roughly represents 7 per cent of Morocco's GDP and has directly created over 500,000 jobs. 

But how does tourism impact Morocco? Take an immersive journey with us as we sip tea and chat with local female guides, witness community tourism in action and meet the women who are shaking up the travel industry.
