North Africa
2011 & 2012

Welcome on our North Africa trips 2011 & 2012

On our North Africa site you will find our trips to Morocco and Tunisia.
In 2011 we decided on a 3 week trip to Morocco as the first “test drive” with our new Toyota LandCruiser “Kasimir”. Morocco is a beautiful country with very diverse landscapes as well as various off-road challenges like sand, gravel tracks and steep and narrow mountain passes. It gave us a great inside into the self-sustaining overland travel capabilities of our vehicle.

Taking our finding from this tour we thought that it would be very beneficial to gain some more “real” sand experiences. That’s why our next trip did bring us to the Sahara desert in Tunisia. We travel with a group of Tom’s Fahrzeugtechnik to experience the pure sand dunes for 9 full days - an ideal environment to learn the handling of tricky sand dunes and soft sand passages accompanied by a nice group of people and some great experts. Not only that we did learn a lot about driving techniques and characteristics - we also did have a lot of fun.

After still being limited in time due to our work we decide on a second tour to Morocco for 2012. This country has so much to offer, that we enjoy this trip even more than the first one. This time we mainly focus on the south part of the country, being non touristic with wonderful and hospitable people.

On this website you will find our travel reports, camp places, photo galleries, gps data and useful tips based on our overland travel experiences. We like to take side roads and discover places aside from the typical travel book highlights. We love sharing our impressions and knowledge gained along the way. We hope this is a source of information for people planning the same type of travel.
