The proposed route (the first days).
Updated: Feb 12, 2021
We will arrive at Santander on the Monday at 14:00 so aim to stop over night near Salamanca then the next day continue on to Tarifa, not too far from Gibraltar. From there we go to Algeciras to catch the ferry to Cueta the Spanish enclave in Northen Africa. Once through the customs area we will head off for the night near Chefchaouen.Next day will see us driving through Meknes on to Azrou and throught the Ceder Forest where we should see Monkeys! We stop for the night at Midelt which is in the high plains between the Middle Atlas and High Atlas mountain ranges. Next day we pass through Todra Gorge which is a deep gorge carved into the limestone hills. We pass through Nkob and now into the desert! We overnight at Zagora which is the site of a large mud fortress. We will update the rest of this route once we have worked it out but the next day hopefully we will be driving on part of the Paris to Dakar rally route famous for its massive sand dunes!
