What sort of duration you thinking of, and what sort of dates??

What do you budget per day for a Morocco trip? (very roughly ..)

Gary, I calculated this rough estimate last year:

Ferry to/from Spain £750 return
Spending money on the boat approx £100
Fuel traveling through Spain 1,300 miles at £5.60 a gallon = £[email protected]
Fuel in Morocco 2,000 miles at £2.05 a gallon = £[email protected]
Ferry to/from Morocco £250 return
Most of Morocco is wild camping but add 3 nights hotels @ £30 per night = £90
So in total about £1,700 for 17 days, so even if you add £500 for food/spending etc it is arround £2,300k.
If you travel via the tunnel, by the time you have paid the chunnel fee + the extra fuel and Péage fees, there is not much difference between that option and using the Portsmouth/Bilbao crossing.

Hey all, sorry in the delay.

My thinking was a two weekish trip, with camping and maybe odd hotels if needed as they can be quite cheap.
Last time i went i was alone so didn't do the dunes as a little risky, quite fancy staying in one of those forts that is now a hotel, the one Michael Palin used in the Sahara program.

Just need to get the Cruiser specced up for the trip :cool:

Would have loved to come along, but my wife is expecting our first child in September so no desert playing for a bit
On the Fort front have a look at

Stayed there on last trip, great place. Lights out at 11 when they turn the generator off and no roads to it :lol:

Should just point out the hotel is not actually in the old Fort

Its just round the corner, the fort is pretty much in ruins, you can explore the Fort and find the wall

They used to shoot people against :shock:

Also there is an oasis just next to the Fort for firewood

OK - I've got departure clearance from SWMBO - so keep me up to speed on this please? I need to know rough sort of dates you're thinking about, ferries, etc. a bit closer to the time :D I'll probably be travelling solo on this one, if it gels, and use it as a recce for future. :cool:

Cheers

I will probably be solo too, it could be a good opertunity for others to ride along to help with some costs/driving and to check it out for their future trips.
