13 days tour from which 11 days off-road riding with 1 day relaxing at the beach
Starting from Ouarzazate we follow the Draa River through the southern deserts of Morocco all the way to the Atlantic coast and back through the Siroua Mountains. With its total of over 1600km this is the longest off-road tour we offer in Morocco. Daily average of riding is between 100km and 200km per day, depending on the terrain. Due to the extreme heat this tour can not be done during the summer.
Yamaha TT600Re with 42hp air-cooled engine, no electronics, easy electric starter. Guiding is done by GPS on the handle bars. Detailed track information on the screen shows you exactly where to go. All fuel is included. You can also choose to do the tour on KTM 450 EXC.
4×4 assistance truck
Depending on the group’s size one or two 4×4 service trucks follow the participants over the exact same tracks and carry on board: Mechanic/tour leader, fridge with coke and beer, fridge with food, your personal luggage, 180 litre petrol, spare-parts, tools, tyres, tubes, 12 volt compressor, water, tents, sleeping bags, inner sheets, mattresses, cooking materials, etc
Dinner Breakfast Lunch
We buy fresh vegetables and meat during the day in local villages. Where possible we have lunch in small restaurants along the track. On other places we enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of a tree. Dinner is prepared “en group” that means we all give a hand, also with cleaning the dishes.
You have the benefit of our 36 years Morocco experience. Our wild-camps are carefully chosen spots next to a well or near a spring. On 2 bivouac locations we camp beside a natural pool in the desert. Both great places for a refreshing swim after a dusty ride. You’ll be provided with a Decathlon “2-seconds” tent. Easy to put up, throw it in the air and your room is there! For a comfortable night we have self-inflating mattresses. Sleeping bags with proper clean inner sheets keep you warm at night. In the morning we break up camp and after a group-prepared breakfast we head out further into the desert.
During the day the guys in the 4×4 collect wood for the evening campfire. We all have a good time sitting together around the fire, enjoying a cold beer or coke, talking about the days ride and staring at the stars… This beats any hotel.
We spend 4 nights in hotels. There we find all the comfort; hot showers, dinner at a table, drinks from the bar, a real bed to sleep in, etc.
