ALGARVE JEEP SAFARI
Expedition About 2000 Km
Day 1 Marrakech – Agadir 350km
After completing all the formalities, we will begin our adventure through African lands, a first for many. On this first day we will connect the cosmopolitan city of Marrakech to the beautiful and modern city of Agadir by the sea.
The route is all made by national roads with good pavement and moderate traffic. When we get close to Essaouira we will find the famous goats grazing on top of the trees and some factories that transform the well-known Argan Oil into various beauty products.
Essaouira is a fishing town, a world heritage site with a still visible Portuguese presence and good fish restaurants. A very nice and pleasant place where we will have lunch.
After lunch, the route is very pleasant, always by the sea through the top of the mountains until we see modern Agadir with its huge wall next to the beach.
2nd Day Agadir – Guelmim 300km
This is the first day for off-road adventures, we start right away with a route with some sand through the pine forests with very fun driving and several possibilities for games.
Gradually we are approaching the coast where the first difficulties await us. The route next to the beach has a lot of sand and requires attention and a lot of driving so as not to get bogged down.
This will be the first day of strong emotions. In the middle of the afternoon, the beach is behind us and we follow a mountainous road with a lot of traffic towards Guelmim, where we will sleep and visit the local market.
3rd Day Guelmim – Tata 430km
We believe that this is the most memorable point of the entire trip, because probably most of the participants have never driven on a beach!
White Beach at low tide is an authentic motorway with a sand floor, allowing you to drive as fast as you like, always with the sea by your side and the seagulls as your companions! Fabulous and indescribable!
An experience that will surely remain in the memory of all those who make our expedition.
After the beach, we head inland, the landscape gradually changes, giving way to more and more desert areas, which are incredibly beautiful. We will sleep in Tata near the desert slopes.
4th Day Tata - Zagora 250km
On this day we will start the sensations of driving in the desert. We started with a few km on tarmac and then entered the famous Dakar tracks, the Sahara desert in its fullness, the large spaces with nothing around, the feeling is unique and stunning, arriving at the dry Lake Iriki, we will all feel like racing drivers the Dakar Rally…
After the Lake we have the dunes of Chegagá with lots of sand and fun. We will sleep in the capital of the desert, Zagora, a crossing point for all expeditions!
5th Day Zagora - Erg Chebbi 250km
On this day, we will have to leave at dawn, as there is a long journey ahead of us, entirely on desert tracks. It will be a very remarkable stage, the landscape is dazzling and as far as the eye can see... The ground, sometimes hard and stony, sometimes sandy, was used several times in the Dakar Rally.
6th day Erg Chebbi – Erg Chebbi 100km
This day should start very early for those who want to enjoy an unforgettable spectacle in the desert, the sunrise from the top of the dunes. You can do it on the back of a camel or on foot. The rest of the day will be spent driving on sand, whether climbing the dunes, skirting the entire Erg or visiting the small town of Merzouga. A lot of driving, adrenaline, obstacles, fears and apprehensions, in short, a little bit of everything will happen, but for sure this day will remain in everyone's memory as one of the most spectacular!
7th Day Erg Chebbi - Ouarzazate 250km
After the desert, we will continue mostly on tarmac to Ouarzazate, called the Hollywood of Morocco for its various film studios.
8th Day Ouarzazate - Marrakech 300km
After getting to know a little bit of the city, we will visit Ait Benhaddou, classified by Unesco as a world heritage site, being all made of clay. In this fortified city numerous films have been shot including Lowrence of Arabia and Sodom and Gomorrah.
After the visit we will cross the Atlas with very beautiful landscapes heading to Marrakech where our expedition ends.
