Thanks for the tip, I have the "Camping Morocco" book from VicarousBooks, and it doens't mention nothing in Tata. That sorts Tata then , Assa I've read that the Nicorass Hotel was the only one in 100km radius, if I don't get a reply from them then wild camping will be my option
We were at Tata about three weeks ago, the municipal campsite was full to overflowing with french motorhomes. We camped at the hotel next to the petrol station, relaise de sable ( I think) there you have access to toilets and a water supply, 50 dr per night, we also pitched up one night on a car park opposite the municipal campground and a further 100 meters or so further up the road,it had a securty guy who expected 10dr for his services, but he did stay there all night,so fair play. I also noted with interest that there were a fair few series landies still earning there keep in southern morocco and old J series Bedford trucks.Have a good trip.....Marty
There seems to be zillions of motorhomes this year. Looking down from the BelleView Hotel in Sidi Ifni we estimated we could see 200 motorhomes, and there was another park with getting on for 100 in the other direction.
Could this building be some sort of Auberg or Gite ?

This is right in lake Iriki. I thought there was no houses there.
I stopped at a small cluster of empty rooms about 1 km east of this building and a man cycled over to ask us to visit the cafe / restaurant there, so I guess it is. Didnt stop there though. The empty rooms looked like they might be used to overnight tourist parties. Both sets of buildings looked a little out of place - no planning permission required.
the big adventure ( for me ) is getting close, about the beach I'm taking a ground anchor with me, I will keep moving no matter what, even if I've to drag the land rover 30 mt at a time
Now I'm having difficulty in finding a place to stay in Assa and Tata, tried to e-mail the Nidorass Hotel, but so far no reply, and the reply I got from Dar Infiane in Tata was expensive, about € 130 half-pension.
Any advices ?
I have stayed at Camping Municipal in Tata twice. This year in Februray it is was packed with motor homes. We arrived at around 8.00pm and the owner squeezed us in for one night - much to the dismay of the motor homers - they didnt like the look of my dirty land cruiser and made it very obvious that we were in there way. The campsite is basically a large concreted yard overlooking the river bed. The shower block is fine and there is a small supermarket just ouside the campsite. Tata is a nice little town where you dont get hassled to buy stuff and if you venture into shops, the prices are reasonable.
I have never travelled as part of a group in Morocco, only single vehicle. Three years ago I used a ground tent. This year I just slept in the back of my landcruiser. Where possible I tried to find discrete sites away from the piste but sometimes stopped just off the piste. I always stopped away from villages and used to park up late and set off early. I was never bothered by anyone.
Head south out of Tafraoute for the Napolean's Hat rock outcrop and take the paved road to the right of the tarmac road as shown in this photo. When you get to a little square exit over to the right, then keep going. You should stumble across the rocks.
