Travelling Alone as a Woman in Tafraoute, Morocco

Hi there,
I just got back from a three week trip to Morocco. While it was beautiful and full of amazing memories, I feel obliged to warn women who are thinking of travelling alone to Tafraoute. I was attacked by a faux guide while on my way to visit the blue rocks just outside the town. Another bad decision was made when I went to the local police who were, to put it mildly, very unversed in women’s rights. I don’t want to deter anyone from visiting, but please be careful and trust your intuition.

Like you say, being careful and trusting your instincts are a good way of keeping safe, as well as using common sense. I hope you’re not put off travelling to Morocco or anywhere else because of this, and thanks again for sharing your advice.

  • Once we decide to travel alone, we should ensure that our intuition is good enough. Good thing you manage to get back safely and thanks for letting us know. I think in all places, travelers should be really careful in dealing with other people. Adequate information should be gathered first.
