11 Instagram Accounts to Follow Before Visiting Morocco

Often, before heading to a new country, we scroll through Instagram for inspiration. We want to discover places not listed in popular travel guides. Or to know the country from its insiders’ perspectives.

Do you want to taste Morocco before heading there? I selected 11 Instagram accounts about Morocco that I have followed for a while. These accounts are not only run by locals but also by foreigners living in Morocco. Or foreigners that spend time here. As well these accounts will introduce you not only to inspiring places to visit but also to Moroccan culture and history.

If you are interested in women’s rights and graphic arts, follow Zainab Fasiki. She is a young Moroccan comics artist, mechanical engineer, an activist for women’s rights and “gender democracy activist” from Fez. She produces comic books through which she analyses problems related to women’s freedom in the Middle East and North Africa region. “Most Moroccans think that hiding bodies, restricting sexuality, and freedoms maintain the social order and give value… We must talk about our co-existence so that there is no more hshouma about these subjects: we are living a social and sexual crisis that we must resolve,” says Zainab Fasiki for her almost 70K Instagram followers.
