Planning an upcoming trip to Morocco? Lucky for you I’ve created the ultimate Morocco Retreat Packing List!
Pangea Dreams is hosting their first-ever Photography & Content Creation Tour in beautiful Morocco in April and being a PD alumna myself (Bali October 2018) I can definitely say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
While Morocco is a very Instagram-able country, this isn’t your usual crop top-and-bikini destination. Having explored this country with a girlfriend I know first-hand what you’ll want to pack for your trip.
Check out my packing list below!
When traveling to Morocco keep in mind that it is a conservative country, you can’t walk around the streets dressed in mini denim shorts and a crop top. However, this doesn’t mean you need to cover up from head to toe. The keyword for the perfect Moroccan suitcase is BALANCE!
Think long flowy dresses and skirts, hippy-chic kimonos and kaftans and silky wide-leg trousers. Super feminine fashion items, while not revealing too much, enable you to feel at ease under Morocco’s scorching heat.
I’d also advise you to pack a shawl or a pashmina, very handy to cover your shoulders or legs when visiting Mosques!
Another essential when exploring Morocco: jumpers! Being a desert country, the temperatures go from burning during the day to chilly at night, especially in the desert.
Usually, this key item is a non-negotiable on any Pangea Dreams retreat! I’d advise you to pack an elegant one-piece. A bikini might be considered inappropriate by locals.
This is where you can get crazy when in Morocco! Pack hats, bags, sunglasses, headbands, scarves and all kinds of jewelry!
I, for example, love statement jewelry! These pieces allow me to accessorize my outfits and make them pop!
Playing around with accessories you’ll be able to create the perfect glamorous look for your photoshoots.
Shoes are also another great way to add a “little something more” to your outfit when in Morocco.
On this retreat, you’ll visit a wide variety of places, from cities to deserts.
I’d advise bringing at least three pairs (keep in mind I’m a shoe addict hence I’m often over-packing).
A classic! Allowing you to explore both the narrow streets of Marrakesh’s souk and the Atlas desert without getting your feet too dirty.
A good option to create a more boho elegant look whilst avoiding aching feet at the end of the day.
For those chilly nights (like a true French girl).
As a travel and interior design blogger, I never go on a trip without my camera and several SD cards.
Imagine, not being able to take that one great photo because you have no more space left on your current SD cards?!
I also always pack my phone and its cable charger.
And let’s not forget the vital international power adapter to make sure you can plug all your electronic devices!
A large suitcase
Last but not least, if you’re like me an interior design freak, Morocco is your shopping heaven! Therefore, take the biggest suitcase you own – you’ll be bringing back tons of souvenirs!
That’s it! You’re now set to discover mystical Morocco with my Morocco Retreat Packing List.
If you have any questions or further doubts, don’t hesitate to get in touch! I’ll be more than happy to help you out.
