Hunting in space and hunting reserves
The national agency for Water and Forests and the Fight against Desertification may prohibit access to certain hunting territories by order. In this context, there are two categories of reserves: permanent reserves and temporary reserves.
Permanent reserves are areas where hunting is prohibited permanently or for a very long period.
The rest of the national territory is divided into temporary reserves where hunting is prohibited for one or more consecutive hunting seasons.
This measure allows game to reproduce and develop.
Thanks to these regulations, the national agency for Water and Forests and the Fight against Desertification ensures the preservation of Moroccan fauna and flora, while guaranteeing fair hunting conditions for all hunters.
Tourist hunting companies
In order to develop hunting tourism in Morocco, certain territories have been classified and leased to tourist hunting companies. These territories are quite large and located in very varied environments, in order to be representative of the different biotopes and thus allow the hunting of all game species of Moroccan wildlife.
By its geographical position, Morocco is less than a three-hour flight from the main European capitals and can therefore claim a much more important place in international hunting tourism.
