Northern Morocco

22 January – 10 February 2008

We have stayed in campsites in the main, with the odd hotel thrown in for a bit of pampering. In date sequence we have stayed at:

Briech (on the Michelin map Briex). Village Touristique Briech. GPS:N35 31.722’ W005 59.839’. Small site with secure parking, etc and better than the grotty one in Asilah. On southern edge of village on main road Tanger/Asilah, about 10 kms north of Asilah it has basic amenities, but a good restaurant. Rooms available. Electricity hook up available.

Sale. Camping La Plage. GPS:N34 02.148’ W006 49.759’. Good signage from centre of Sale. Well located for Rabat, 25 min walk or10 min by taxi to Medina. In middle of major marina development thus looking tatty as will probably be lost to development in next 18 months. Electricity hook up available.

Meknes. Camping Agdal?. GPS:N33 52.791’ W005 33.362’. No signs for campsite, so follow signs for Palais Royal. Adequate facilities, Electricity hook up available, but no hot shower. Easy walking distance to historic centre and Medina.

Fes. Camping International. GPS:N33 59.945’ W004 58.107’. Not easy to find, on southern side of town by sports stadium and signed there, and on main road to Safrou. Reasonable facilities incl hot shower, electricity hook up. Could be very noisy in summer – camping groups and disco, etc.

Midelt. The Hotel Kasbah. GPS:N32 40.901’ W004 42.795’. About 4kms to south of town on main road to Errachidia. Reasonable food (good breakfast), room good, electricity hook up. Secure (patrolled) parking.

Meski. Camping Source Bleu De Meski. GPS:N31 51.431’ W004 17.003’. About 15 kms south of Errachidia (banks, fuel and stores/market).Picturesque, palms etc. Facilities good, pay for hot shower. Electricity hook up available. Shared access with Moroccans visiting source, thus stall holders and offspring can be troublesome, but get message and stay away. Water is from the source and excellent quality.

Between Adrouine and Merzouga. Hotel Kanz Erremal. GPS:N31 07.778 W004 00.789. Well signposted on tar road from Rissani, but only at dirt track turn off. If following N/S piste along side the dunes, keep close to dunes, only signpost 300m to front of hotel. Curates egg; great location and hotel staff very helpful, swimming pool and wi fi, electricity hook up, but facilities poor for camping.

Zagora. Camping Jardin De Zagora. GPS:N30 19.713 W005 49.948. Turn first left (following sign) after going thro’ large arch on main road in middle of town. Well located, good facilities. Electricity hook up available. Hotel next door, Hotel Ksar Tinsouline, has wi fi which you can use; smart hotel thus reasonable dress when requesting wi fi access. Zagora has fuel, food, cafes/restaurants, etc. Also has at least 2x 4x4 garages (none used), best appeared to be Garage Nissan (a name not a specialism; had TLC and LR being worked on when visited) on left hand side of main road, 800m before arch and camping turn off.
