Our women club tour will include the following activities.
Henna is a plant that grows mostly in the Mediterranean regions, once it is harvested we leave it some days to dry under the sun, then it is grounded to form a fine powder, and when it is mixed with water it becomes a thick paste, then its ready to be used by “Neqasha” the artist who make henna patterns which both Moroccan Amazigh and Arabs paint on their hands or their feet, especially during special ceremonies.
Why Henna in Meknes?
Meknes is known for its different mystical branches of Islam, among these branches there is a famous brotherhood called “Issawa” who came into being in the 16th century, their beliefs are based on the teachings of “Sidi Mohammed ben Aissa” known as Sheik Al Kamel. therefore, we want to keep you close to a spiritual atmosphere cause Henna ceremonies are always accompanied by spiritual chants, dances, and musical performances.
A traditional Hammam
Moroccan males or females shower in the traditional hammam once a week. They usually go by themselves, with their buddies or families. the Hammam in Morocco is usually two buildings that separate the women’s space from men’s. It also makes it a secure area for bathers who get dressed mostly in their underwear.
The Moroccan hammam takes the form of the Roman bath and is inspired by the Othman Turkish style, with three squared rooms, a very hot room, a medium heated room, and a cooler room. With a centered doom with holes, it allows fresh air circulation in the medium room. There is an extra changing room where visitors of the hammam change clothes and get rest.

“Soap beldi” is made with natural soap and olives oil. It is applied to the skin from head to toe. It has an incredible result in softening the skin.
Another Moroccan product is a “Kees”. It is like a glove used in one hand which helps you scrape your skin and remove the dead skin. Some women will ask their friend or neighbor to scrub her back or they might hire “Kassala” to help them with that.
The third important product is a clay mask called “Ghassoul”. After your wash your hair with your shampoo, you can apply the “Ghassoul” mask to your entire body and hair. It is a mix of clay and rose water, and it has many health benefits for your hair and skin.

To avoid losing valuable items, we do not bring valuable stuff to the hammam such as jewelry, a large amount of money, cell phones, and so on.
Benefits Of Moroccan Hammams

Moreover, the traditional hammam is healthy for your skin. It benefits from vitamins, minerals, and natural traditional Moroccan hammam products. All these natural products will help you remove the dead kind, reduce toxins from the skin and keep your skin fresh.
Morocco and Tea
Tea is socially consumed around Morocco every day. It is a mix of water with tea leaves and herbs mostly mint, verbena, or wormwood. It is usually served hot and sweet (very sweet). Most people prefer to have a cup of tea after meals as it helps with digestion.
The history of Moroccan tea goes back to the 12 century BC during the phoneticians’ era who settled in for around 8 centuries in northern Morocco. Another story says that the Amazigh native people of Morocco brought that tea while trading with Asians. Another hypothesis links it to the reign of Moulay Ismail who received a quantity of tea as a gift from the queen of Britain after releasing some European prisoners.
mint tea is considered the national drink for all Moroccans, and the symbol of their hospitality and generosity. Whenever you go to Morocco, you will be invited for a glass of mint tea.
Our tea ceremony demonstration will be in one of the cities that you will be visiting, or in the desert since the tradition of making it is almost the same all over Morocco. Thus, you will learn the names of tools and the ingredients that are used for centuries in making this drink. Also, you will be able to prepare a mouth-watering glass of tea.
The Sahara desert covers the territory of more than ten north African countries. Morocco is one of the countries that have deserts with amazing sand dunes that are not observed everywhere, and it is considered a convenient and safest country to visit. In morocco, you can enjoy the dunes in several places, one of the most famous places is called Merzouga. Another beautiful place is called Zagora. During your trip to the Sahara desert, you can do many activities that will make your trip so special and full of memories.
A drum circle will start with the members in the desert who will accommodate you. It is like a warmup, then they will start singing which will lead to dancing around the fire pit. This drum circle will transfer to a lesson that will teach you how to use Moroccan instruments. In addition, you will have a fun and unforgettable night at that luxurious desert camp.
In Sahara, you can do sand surfing through the huge sand dunes that take a shape of a wave sometimes. You will just need to pick up a board and the dune you like then have fun.
After dressing like natives, you can ride a camel and have a tour in the desert to get closed to the huge dunes that appear to be low until you see someone or a group of people climbing it, then you realize how huge it is. It is a wonderful opportunity to take photos and enjoy the sunrise or sunset while riding camels
