Founder & Director – Mário Teixeira
Lover of large natural spaces, which for him are synonymous of an unparalleled freedom. The first trips in Morocco were almost lonely, especially in the desert, and definitely marked the course of his own life.
Dozens of trips and expeditions crossing almost the entire country over the years have provided an extensive and unique experience at all levels. And this experience allows him drawing itineraries like a painting on a canvas, mentally viewing it and knowing precisely the description of how the sublime landscapes will succeed in the most beautiful routes that are idealized, therefore creating unique sensory trips.
Maroc Luxury Travel trips guided by him are authentically value-added for a customer that wants to have a Unique Lifetime Experience in Morocco.
According to him, “A trip across Morocco is a journey to the beginnings of the world and man; the impressive landscapes are pages of time, alive and timeless. This is when we turn inward, discovering our essence. And in this sublimation we are fully in peace, with ourselves and with what surrounds us.”
Directress & Events – Maria Vieira
Her first time to Africa, Morocco, was with a one way ticket and she never returned to Lisbon where she lived most of her life.
During these last years, she was surprised by the extreme beauty of the country and the beautiful heart of the Moroccan people.
She is thrilled when she speaks of Morocco and the pure sensorial experience that lives in the country.
Sensitive to the arts and communication, Maria captures and represents MLT in a unique and exceptional way.
Financial Directress – Ana Pereira
Reserved and tender-hearted, Ana has strong connections to Africa. For years she worked in Angola in both management and economy.
Ruled in her life by the principles of faith and love, Ana welcomed into her family, Ester, an African child, smiling and full of happiness.
The strong physical and spiritual connection with Africa, holds in her heart the true feeling of essence and origin of life.
In Morocco, it is in the simplest things that Ana feels this transcendent energy: “the love of creation. An energy that makes us vibrate, therefore she feels a strong sensorial connection to the earth”.

Driving on the great and endless slopes of the Moroccan Sahara Desert contemplates in absolute silence and recalls Sísifo an extraordinary poem by the Portuguese Miguel Torga:
If you can without anguish
and without hurry.
And the steps you give
in that hard road
on the future,
Give them in freedom.
While you do not reach
do not rest.
Of no fruit want only half.(…)”
