Taking Your Own 4×4:
If you have not travelled the Sahara or Morocco before, we recommend to start off with our Sahara ”soft option” – The Great Eastern Erg of merzouga and Cheggaga route help you to develop a feeling for the Sahara and find out whether this environment is for you or not.
There is no need to upgrade your vehicle to expedition spec, you need a good set of tires in a larger than standard dimension, take off sidesteps, mud flaps and Dixon-Bate style tow bars and give the vehicle a good service prior to departure. You will also need a place to sleep on the Sahara leg – personal preference matters. Roof tents can be hired or purchased from our company Moroccan Skies.
When you book with us, we supply you with a comprehensive infopack with checklists for your vehicle and personal equipment, route descriptions and a much more. And if necessary, our guides will join for more assistance, directions and problems fixing.
