The beginning of our journey. The meeting point is the "Ferdaous" campsite in Marrakech. If you arrive by plane, the best way to get to the campsite is by taxi. The round trip has a length of approx. 1900 kilometers. This corresponds to an average of less than 100 kilometers a day. We will have to adjust this individually on site. So we will have to drive about 180 km on the first stage from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou. (Motorbikes and off-road vehicles can alternatively take the P1506 to Ait Ben Haddou). You can take it easy the next day.
Really camping for the first time and enjoying our kitchen from the service truck. To finish off the day.
The next stage takes us to Quarzazate with a visit to the Kasbah Taourirt
Next stop is Skoura with a visit to the Kasbah Amridil.
The next stop is Boumalne Dadès. Here we decide individually whether we should make a detour to the Dades Gorge. The next stop is planned in the Erfoud area. Then it goes to Merzouga on Erg Chebbi.
Camping and end the day.
This is the first time you have the opportunity to drive in the dunes. Camel trips with locals can also be booked here (not included in the cost planning).
Next stop in the Taouz area. Access to the real slopes begins here. Most travelers turn around here and head west on the normal roads. The slopes from Taouz towards Mhamid are very demanding and not for people without desert experience. From Ramlia there is no official slope to Mhamid. We will be working with American flight navigation maps and IGN maps, which map the terrain profile well. We can only say on site what the exact route to Mahmid will look like. It is about 230 km from Taouz to Mhamid. There is a very good chance that the military will maneuver us northwards because of the disputed border between Morocco and Algeria. Of course we have to obey that.
From Mhamid it goes through the lake Iriki past the table mountain Madouar Shrir further west. We come through Erg Chegaga with plenty of dunes. If necessary, a detour to Foum Zguid can be made. However, this is not planned. We continue west until we reach Akka.
Refueling with fuel and water is definitely planned here. From Akka, it's back on the slopes as soon as possible to continue following the Qued Draa. Over the next few days we will drive around 450 kilometers comfortably towards the Atlantic coast to then reach El Ouatia (formerly Tan Tan Plage).
Then it goes north on the Atlantic coast. With a bit of luck, the Qued Noun will lead to water and we will enjoy some swimming pools.
Bou Jerif Tourist Complex
We then follow the Qued to the east and come across the legendary Fort Bou Jerif. Even if the campsite there no longer has the flair of the past, a detour is worthwhile. Then we drive back towards the coast and then further north.
At Tassila we turn towards the coast and find a wonderful bay there. We discovered this by chance on a trip in 2006.
We continue towards Ait Melloul. From there on regular roads towards Marrakech. The more beautiful route via Ouirgane is planned.
Arrival in Marrakech. Check equipment, load motorbikes / quads etc. Flight home.
