Morocco, The Atlantic Coast, Oued Draa and Sahara

ChegegaWe have just got back from a very successful reconnaissance in Morocco where we put the finishing touches to our new adventure - Morocco, The Atlantic Coast, Oued Draa and Sahara. This adventure will run for the first time from October 21st to November 5th 2013.
 
This Impala route is the best yet and you will be off roading from the afternoon of day 3, right up to the evening of day 12. Not only will you travel the tracks that run above the cliffs beside the Atlantic and the immense flood plain of the Oued Draa, but also enjoy the sands and dunes of Lac Iriki, not along its northern edge, an area used by most who cross its vastness, but to the south where the driving is more challenging and the wild camps more remote. Two of the many highlights of this adventure are a 45km dash along the sandy beach of Plage Blanche culminating at a beautiful wild campsite near the mouth of the Oued Aounet El Ksab and the remote rock carvings at the end of a blind valley in the Jebel Bani, some of which are 1000 years old are spellbinding to say the least.
 
EssaouriaEssaouria, Sid Ifni, Tan Tan and of course Marrakech are some of the towns that you will visit on the way and we have factored in time to enjoy them to the full. There are three rest days (Fort Bou-Jerif, Kasbah Azalay and Le Coq Hardi) so that you can just sit back and let the incredible sights, sounds and smells of Morocco settle in your mind-over a gin and tonic or a beer of course!!

The route with details of the hotels and wild camps is laid out below. The price of £2,650 (car with two passengers) includes the usual Impala Support, Roadbooks with maps showing the daily routes and the following:
