Tips for travelling in Morocco by motorhome
As tempting as it may sound to pack your bags and set off on an adventure as soon as possible, there are some factors to bear in mind when you do a morocco road trip and making the most of the experience.
- Prepare your morocco road trip: Before you leave, make sure you know the main regulations, requirements and restrictions of travelling to Morocco. Choose the route(s) you will travel, the campsites available and the places or cities you are interested in visiting.
- Check your insurance cover: unfortunately, sometimes we are unlucky and can suffer theft or accidents in our vehicle when visiting a foreign country. It is therefore very important to have insurance that covers the motorhome and all our belongings.
- Check the traffic rules: Traffic in Morocco can be chaotic, so it's important to do a bit of research before you set off on your motorhome tour of Morocco. Some useful tips are to never exceed the speed limit, avoid driving at night in urban or rural areas and always wear your seatbelt.
Get around with cash: before setting off, exchange a few euros for dirhams (the country's currency), as not all shops, restaurants and petrol stations accept cards.

The first route to do a Morocco road trip by motorhome is the one that runs through the northern part of the country from Tangier to the city of Chefchaouen, passing through the Rif Mountains.
If you choose this route, you must stop in Tangier and stroll along the seafront promenade and souk; or in Chefchaouen, a very peaceful city that oozes a unique beauty thanks to its medina full of narrow streets and blue-painted houses.
If you have time, you can explore the beautiful natural landscapes of northern Morocco or visit the city of Fez, considered the cultural capital of the country.
The coastal route runs from Tangier to the city of Agadir, and allows you to visit several of the cities on Morocco's Atlantic coast, such as Casablanca and Rabat, the country's capital.
These two cities are a must if you want to immerse yourself in the local lifestyle. However, if you prefer to escape the crowds and relax, park your caravan anywhere and enjoy the beautiful beaches and seascapes of the Atlantic coastline - great!
Are you still hungry for more? Take the opportunity to take a stroll around the port of Essaouira and sample its exquisite seafood and fresh fish dishes; or visit the beautiful and artistic Asilah, the Pearl of the Atlantic.
Any adventurer who wants to explore Morocco by campervan should try the desert route, which crosses the Sahara from the city of Ouarzazate to Erg Chebbi.
