Morocco Packing List For Women | Tips For What To Pack And Wear In Morocco

Blue City

Are you heading to Morocco and not sure what you should bring for your trip? In September of 2016, my siblings and I did a road trip for two weeks around the country. Before going to Morocco I did a lot of research about what I should pack since it is a Muslim country and weatherwise, it was going to be hot in September. In this post, I share exactly what I packed so that it could be a reference guide for your trip. Of course, everyone is different when it comes to style and preferences but I thought a Morocco packing list would be helpful in case you need some ideas.

My Morocco Packing List:

My Morocco packing list tech-wise:

  • Unlocked iPhone (call your cell phone company to unlock your phone) – I bought a local Moroccan SIM card to use for calling riads and random internet needs. I have T-Mobile but Africa is not included in my free worldwide data
  • I brought my MacBook Air because my iPhone 6 was being funny so I wanted to be sure I could communicate with the riads that we had booked plus taking so many photos I try to upload my images to my Dropbox
  • Universal travel plug – Morocco uses similar plugs to Europe
  • Travel power strip – always because I bring so much gear!
  • Cameras: I brought my GoPro, my DSLR, and mirrorless Sony – I couldn’t take enough photos in Morocco!
  • Don’t forget all of your charging cords!!!
  • For the Sahara specific, check out my Sahara packing list by clicking here.

Morocco is a Muslim country so you will see women wearing hijabs. This, of course, is not expected of foreigners but I wanted to be respectful. September was quite hot still and I wanted to make sure my clothing was lightweight yet gave me full coverage. I did wear some short sleeve and a sleeveless top but I had my Balinese sarong which acted as a scarf/shawl when I felt like I should cover up.

You will see foreigners wearing tank tops, short dresses and skirts, which of course is fine, I’m not judging. But since I definitely look like a foreigner, I prefer to be a bit more incognito. I did not have any problems with being harassed and I know it is due to being properly dressed.



  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.

Here are more photos of what I wore during my trip for ideas:
