Morocco Overland Routes Update
I've posted here before about my first trip to Morocco with 2 mates leaving at the end of March, since which time we have Touratech'd our bikes up (2 x KTM690Enduro's & 950 Adventure) and I have tried to put together a rough route plan - we will have 12 days riding in Morocco.
We are planning our basic route around many of those listed in Chris Scotts Morocco Overland book, aiming to head South from Ceuta as fast as possible to get over the Atlas and down into the desert where we want to try and ride off tarmac as much as possible. We are staying fairly loose as we hope to meet people on the way, who may be able to suggest alternative routes.
Any comments on the routes below? I have read a lot about many of the roads being tarmacced down there:
1. Missour - Boudenib - Erfoud
ME1 to Beni Tajite then either:
a) ME4/ME5 to Bouanane then ME2 to Erfoud or
b) ME7 to Erfoud
Here looking to maybe head to Merzouga & Erh Chebbi, but heard it is very touristy.
2. Erfoud - Rissani - Ouarzazate (Bikershome)
MS3 /MS6 Rissani - Merzouga(?) - Tafraoute
From here, we hope to have time to head to Tagounite/Mhamid & Erg Chegaga via MS6, if we don't have time:
MS4 to Zagora then MS1 to Agdz - Ouarzazate
3. Ourzazate - Ceuta
No routes planned here to get back. If pushed for time, we will shoot across to Marakesh then fastest possible means to port, otherwise some pistes over the Atlas would be fantastic.
