Megan Lower

I am the director of Wanderlust Voyages and is the primary point of contact for travelers. I view travel as a way to expand your world view, learning about different cultures and immersing yourself in the local experience. I'm not a fan of traveling halfway around the world (or even just across the nearest border) just to stay in familiar hotels, eat familiar food, and try to go about the cities/towns the way you would at home. Travel is about enjoying new destinations and experiences to their fullest, which means visiting local restaurants, unique accommodations, and, when possible, talking to local residents.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"All of Morocco. From Tangier to the Sahara to Marrakech, and everything in between. Whether you are looking for luxury, adventure, history, or any combination thereof, we can put together the perfect itinerary for you. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I am a lawyer-turned-travel-expert, a journey that began with my first trip to the Sahara Desert. I was so enchanted with Morocco, and the desert region in particular, that I wanted to share it with everyone. This started the conversation with my husband, Belghit (who was born in nearby Rissani), about how we could accomplish bringing friends, family, anyone and everyone to explore the wonders of Morocco. Since then, I dove headfirst into the travel business, expanding my knowledge of both the industry and Morocco. I've already been there over a dozen times, and each time I go, I visit more accommodations, try out new activities, and seek to increase my knowledge of the country."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Oh, so many... From transportation adventures to interactions with wild animals to weather failing to cooperate, there are always things that can make travel a unique experience. However, one of the most eye-opening and unique experiences was part of that first trip to the Sahara. I went to visit the home where Belghit grew up. It was a mud-brick house part of an ancient ksar that dates back to the 1700s. Making our way through the winding path inside, cool in the dark away from the bright sun, passing by old mule stalls, a well that once served as their primary source of water, and climbing up the winding steps to bare mud rooms, each opening into a central courtyard. The kitchen still contained a daubed mud oven for baking bread and no running water. It looked like something that you would expect to be from centuries past, not a mere two decades. And yet, that's how Belghit grew up, running down the road to his family's date farm. It was an incredible experience, very eye-opening, and one I will never forget."

Traveler: Daniel P. - Local specialist: Megan Lower

We had a great experience using Kim Kim for this trip. The process was seamless and Megan was very helpful and easy to communicate with.
Overall we feel the value was good. Our driver (Ismael) was incredible throughout the trip, and really made our experience fantastic!
Our guides were solid (especially Kamal in Fes), and overall the accommodation was of a good standard.
We would certainly recommend and use KimKim again.
