Going on a bike to Marocco in July? Auch that might get a bit hot unless you stay in the mountains. I was there in May and it was already quite hot from time to time.
I kept my films in my tankbag and they where ok. If you can moister the outside of the bag from time to time, the vaporisation of the water will cool the bag down.

No, I am not going down to Morocco with bike but with car.
What is tankbag???
How many pictures did you take?
Were there any problems with lenses (desert dust) or camera body?

A tankbag is a small, backpack like, bag that fits over a motorcycle fuel tank.

You have a lot of shade inside the car so put the exposed film in a bag out of the sun and it will be fine. If stationary, completely closed and parked in the sun, the car glass will act like a green house and the inside temperature will keep rising until you open the doors or the sun sets. So crack a window open, if safe that is.

Dust is a problem with camera equipment, but if used carefully and cleaned often then it’ll be fine. I have installed an air compressor in the car that I can turn on even while driving. I reeled an air hose inside the cab and often quick clean my camera equipment with a quick burst of air. Every night I give my camera equipment, and bag, a through clean. You can do the same with small brush blowers that are usually sold in camera stores or perhaps compressed air cans.

If you’re traveling with an electric cooler (Engel) then you can store the film inside the cooler in a watertight box like Otterbox (small) or Pelican (larger sizes). Just remember that you must allow unexposed film to slowly return to ambient temperature before being used. I would say 2 hours in most conditions is a good warm up period. I haven’t tried this in the desert myself so perhaps someone could give us first hand experience on this. Maybe the desert heat will warm the film too rapidly and cause condensation of something.

Hope this helps.
