Price Calculation Example:

You arrive at Casablanca (or Marrakech) on the Saturday afternoon (or evening). You will be picked up at the airport and brought to the hotel and stay overnight. On the Sunday morning, after breakfast, you will be brought to the lake. All the necessary fishing tackle will be handed over to you and you can start fishing.

The next week, on the Sunday afternoon, you stop fishing. In the early evening, you will be brought back to the hotel and after an overnight stay and breakfast,
you will be brought back to the airport of Casablanca (or Marrakech), in the course of Monday.

The price for your fishing trip arrangement will be calculated as an 8 days fishing trip.
(From Sunday until Sunday, 8 fishing days, price euro 550)
The price for your hotel will be 2 x € 25 = € 50
The total price = euro 600.
Your total traveling time = 10 days. (arrival day + 8 fishing days + departure day).

It is possible to take a shower in the warehouse of ‘Morocco Carp Fishing’, near the lake, in case you wish to be transported directly from the lake to the airport.
