Thanks again everyone.
As above, this one looks quite useful;
Pistes du Maroc Tome 6 (2014) - Extrem'Sud
The new edition (2014) , revised and greatly expanded ( 408 pages instead of 128) of Volume 6 4x4 J. guides Gandini illustrated and is now strongly full color ( 400 instead of 48 pictures ) .
It offers 40 routes (27 in the previous edition), with the 1100 GPS survey points ( instead of 510) , totaling 6,800 km of tracks ( instead of 3800) deLaâyoune / Smara to the Mauritanian border , inter alia, new courses off piste completely new .
The Atlantic Sahara , or Western Sahara, nothing like the traditional Sahara northwest Africa that media reports had we used to make us dream . If large desert areas are present in Atlantic Sahara , no massive dunes like huge ergs of Algeria or Libya, or point Tanezrouft Ténéré , mountainous massifs point remains full of pre-Islamic as Mauritanian Adrar , Hoggar and Tassili in Algeria or Akakous and Messak Libya.
The Atlantic Sahara is a different world where the ocean sea entries have shaped a different landscape ... In 2006, during my first survey routes , and in February 2013 for this new edition , I had the chance to cross a desert like our European meadows , a huge green carpet with exceptional rains that nomads had not seen for a long time. Wadis flowed in many areas , wells and aquifers were full of water, wildlife and birds kept us company ... not to mention butterflies around lights at night ...
The Atlantic Sahara is another vision of Morocco, Morocco a little known DPM . The Atlantic Sahara nothing like the tourist Sahara of southern Morocco encountered between Merzouga and Foum Zguid and we traveled a few days trying to avoid columns 4x4 agencies or groups of friends coming to a " raid " ...
The Atlantic Sahara there are hundreds and hundreds of kilometers of reg with light beautiful reliefs or depressions indicating the presence of a wadi where sometimes some thorny acacias invite you to bivouac. The Atlantic Sahara are also areas of great emptiness where you will not meet anyone hundreds of kilometers , nomadic camps are rather in the south where the reliefs provide accreditation in the landscape.
In summary, the Atlantic Sahara desert is good , the true desert ...
RAFKE; Also would like to hear your report on it.
Off course I have Chris Scott's books, MO 1&2 and Sahara Overland.
Always like as much info as I can absorb.
Yes started looking at google maps, funny enough the older Olaf link I have covers more of South Maroc, than the newer link that doesn't seem to cover it at all.
Thanks again, cheers Mark
