Morocco Self-Drive Car Road Trip 2019

Morocco is the gateway to Saharan Africa. An exotic land with a unique mix of Arabic, European and the local Berber cultures that can be traced back to the country’s colonial past and its geographical location on the north-western tip of Africa.

It is the safest country on the continent and Moroccans are friendly and accommodating towards tourists. Apart from its cultural diversity, the country is also known for its cuisine, art and ever-changing landscapes, which makes it an exciting country for a road trip!

Our weeklong self-drive car road trip of Morocco will start and end in the Imperial city of Marrakesh. Shop for local artefacts in the famous souqs of Marrakesh, walk through narrow alleys of the fortified Medina (old town) and experience a sensory overload in Jemaa el Fna, the vibrant central square.

Drive will start the following day and you will explore the southern part of this country for the next one week in rugged 4x4 SUVs. Conquer the scenic mountain passes in the High Atlas and Anti Atlas mountains, camp in luxury tents in the sand dunes of Sahara Desert and scramble through an off-road stage of the original Dakar rally!

A MotoRover guide in a car will lead this tour from the front and our convoy of cars will be followed by a backup car that carries tools, first aid and a mechanic. It will always trail the convoy to ensure everyone is safe and on track.

We have designed this tour after a thorough on-ground exploration of Morocco to give you a refined experience. The terrain is enjoyable for amateur as well as experienced drivers and the daily driving distances have been crafted to provide you ample breaks and photo opportunities.

Group size will be limited to 18-20 participants, and apart from the cars and support team, the tour package includes fuel, airport pickup/drop, a local simcard, dinners, accommodation in boutique hotels and Riads and local sightseeing. All you have to do is signup, arrive and drive!
