Our first country in Africa and our first chance to test Mr Orange in off-highway conditions. Just under three weeks in Morocco and Western Sahara and we could easily have stayed the same duration again, what a fantastic country.

For part of our way we teamed up with an Aussie couple in an even bigger truck and gave us the confidence to go cross country and over mountains knowing there was someone capable to assist if required. Fortunately never required. Also good company!! Good thing the Springboks did not meet Australia in the rugby WC final otherwise it may have been a different affair.
