In Marrakech we use a good quality comfortable hotel such as the Moroccan House Hotel. Rooms are
on twin share basis with private facilities.
On hike we camp using two person tents with sewn in ground sheets or gîte (simple mountain huts). Basic bedding and mattresses will be provided, but you should bring your own sleep-sheet and sleeping bag. As power in the villages may be limited you will need your own torch (and spare batteries).
You are hiking through some of Morocco's most remote regions, so please be prepared for very basic washing and toilet facilities. Most often only cold water is available. Sometimes there is no running water, but there may be a stream nearby. Toilets will either be squat toilets or 'au naturel' - that is, using the local sheep pen or behind a nice rock!
You will need to bring your own towel, and should carry your own supply of toilet paper (available locally). Other useful items to bring include wet-wipes and disinfectant for hands. Toilet paper should be used sparingly, and should be burned safely and buried, or collected and taken out of the area for disposal. You should also bring matches/lighter and some resalable plastic bags.
Although dwellings and facilities may be basic, if you leave behind your western ideals, you'll appreciate these wonderful communities to their fullest extent!!
