With Mediterranean, Macaronesian and African influences, this area has a fascinating mix of plants including succulent Euphorbias, highly restricted autumn-flowering bulbs, fragrant lavenders and interesting shrubs, including the endemic Argan tree, a keystone of the local culture.

The autumn is a great time to experience the interesting birdlife of the area, with local North African specialities alongside passage migrants from across Europe. We can expect to find all the local specialties, including House Bunting, Moussier’s Redstart, Black-crowned Tchagra and the endangered Northern Bald Ibis. At wetlands along the coast we will find Osprey and various terns and waders heading southwards, while flycatchers and warblers flit past and south-bound raptors pass overhead.

We will visit Sous Massa National Park where we will learn about the ’re-wilding’ project taking place here for some of the country’s most iconic megafauna: Ostrich, Addax, Dorcas Gazelle and the graceful Scimitar-horned Oryx.

Based for the week at a wonderful hotel on the outskirts of Agadir, this holiday is intended to give an introduction to the plants, birds and other wildlife of this corner of southern Morocco, as well as an insight into the local Berber culture, at a relaxed pace.

An ideal trip for anyone wanting a taste of Morocco in the company of expert leaders whilst enjoying a high standard of accommodation and easy, comfortable travel.
