Ancient Medinas

Ancient Medinas

The beating heart of Moroccan urban life, ancient medinas are the old towns of Moroccan cities. Surrounded by towering walls, around which the rest of the city was built, is a maze of cobblestoned lanes. Treasures lurk behind the tall walls of the culturally rich old towns of Marrakesh, Fez, Essaouira and Chefchaouen. A glimpse into the way things used to be, this is the ‘real Morocco’.

Why Land Journeys

The journey difference

Access Unique Experiences

Travel into the depths of the shimmering Sahara Desert, wind along the gloriously scenic snow-capped horizons of the Alps, immerse yourself in the incredible feeling of visiting a real-life Viking Village tucked away in the mountains. Some of the best adventures can only be reached on a land journey.

Elevated Accommodations

Stay at lavish hotels in the bustling heart of ancient cities, sleep under the twinkling night sky in the Sahara Desert, listen to the roar of a lion in the distance as you wake up with the sun at a private game reserve. During a land journey, your accommodations don’t simply locate you in the action, they become part of it.

Cultural Richness

Feel like a local as you soak in the incredible culture and vibe of each new city. Take your time strolling through the paradise streets of Ascona, Switzerland, savour each sip of mint tea in an ancient medina, meander through lush gardens on Cape Town’s Table Mountain. A land journey affords you the opportunity to spend longer in each city, becoming integrated with the local culture.

Luxurious Rail Journeys

Weaving across breathtaking landscapes, travelling by train is a luxurious and mesmerizing experience. From climbing the snow-capped mountains on the way to Zermatt in the Swiss Alps to snaking along the lush game-filled terrain on the Rovos Rail through South Africa, a rail journey is picture-perfect.
