Escape the rat race on Morocco holidays, says Alek Wek

a href="http://www.adventurecompany.co.uk/country-overview.aspx?productid=34913" target="_self">Morocco holidays could be perfect for travellers who are keen to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

In an interview with The Telegraph, model Alek Wek, who has worked for the likes of Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Alexander McQueen, explained that she had visited the North African country during the filming of a Hollywood movie.

The film Four Feathers, in which Wek had a small role alongside Heath Ledger, was shot out in the desert, around seven hours' drive from the city of Casablanca.

During her time out in the dunes, the model said the crew "ate couscous under the stars".

The Adventure Company offers a number of Morocco holidays which give travellers the chance to escape the rat race, including the Saharan Sands trip.

An eight-day desert experience, the holiday gives active families the opportunity to explore the remote film sets of Ouarzazate and camp out at night beneath the stars.
