“Incredible views from a unique mountain retreat run by Berbers and reached by donkey. Situated at the foot of Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa, Kasbah Toubkal has won a Green Globe for sustainable tourism and is a mecca for trekkers who can enjoy numerous accompanied hikes. Don't expect phones or TVs: we're talking back-to-nature wow factor and mint tea on the roof terrace.”
