Lambeth tourism students visit Morocco

5th October 2016
Morrocco Adventure

A group of third year tourism students has enjoyed an inspiring trip to Morocco. The students travelled to Marrakesh and Fez as part of a third year module, ‘Tourism in Practice’, when they explored how tourism has created opportunities for the local community.

Accompanied by Andrew Rogers, Head of Sport and Travel, the tour was organised by learners Troy Ashby and Lorain Cooper which featured a trip to the souks and a two day trek in the Atlas Mountains? Other highlights included a two night camping and camel trekking experience in the Sahara desert.

On this trip the group spoke to the camel drivers, cooks and guides about how tourism affects their lives and the opportunities and challenges this offers. Troy Ashby, added: “It’s been a challenging year but each learner has deserved this experience. It has created a strong example for the learners and department and the experience we have gained will help future group visits.” “The trip did not only change us on an academic level but also on a personal level as we were able to interact with the locals and learn directly from them.”

Andrew Rogers concluded: “Next year each level will organise their own tours both domestic and international, and we hope to support the wider college with excursions.”
