With a population of 36 million people and daily Covid number of 300 or less, Morocco is in the safe zone. Majority of the cases are still in Casablanca and the region, whereas the rest of the country, especially the south is safe or of no concern. As we are riding in pretty remote places – away from crowded cities – you won’t get in touch with many people. All hotels we are using are certified based on the government imposed hygienic standards.
We have many years’ experience traveling and leading tours in Morocco. We have our full fleet in Marrakesh – so there is no hassle getting the bikes into the country – which can be challenging sometimes. Even when no tour is running we continuously scouting itineraries and discovering hidden tracks. We are living in Morocco and have the most up-to-date and reliable information on the road conditions. We are passionate about our aim to run the great tours and are obsessive about service and making sure all our customers have the tour of their lives. Our dedicated and experienced tour guide will always be on hand to help and unlike some other companies we only stay in the best accommodation – that we have previously hand-picked and tested. It’s not just about the destination, our tours are all about the adventures you have along the way. We believe that the best company to show you a foreign country is the one which is based at the very place.
Our HQ is based in Marrakesh, all tours starts from there.
All our multi-day tours with more than 5 riders include a support vehicle for the duration of the trip. The vehicle is not only there for potential assistance, but also provides the comfort of carrying your luggage throughout the journey.
We strive to provide the best accommodation available, all hand-picked and tested. In remote / rural areas we will stay in auberges or guesthouses, which are a bit more rustic in nature. Nevertheless, all accommodations have been personally verified to ensure the requirements of a motorcycle traveller are met after every riding day (i.e. comfortable bed, clean room, hot shower, a delicious meal and a bar). We strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable environment to our guests. Here are some samples of the hotels we are using: Our Hotels
In order to participate on our tours, you should bring the following items:

  • Valid full motorbike driving license
  • Medical and repatriation insurance

    the entry date)

    protection, etc.)

Cash machines are available everywhere in Morocco so you do not need to carry a lot of cash. You will need money for soft drinks, lunches and coffee during the day, drinks in the evening, for your personal expenses (e.g. souvenirs) and for fuel. Note that alcoholic beverages are priced higher than in some European countries, (i.e. 3-5 EUR for a beer). Fuel cost for a 5-day tour is around 70 EUR.
Please note that we do not provide cancellation insurance but we encourage our customers to get a travel insurance that covers the costs in case they cannot travel.
All of our motorbikes are covered by full insurance. As highlighted in a previous section (What do I need to bring?) every participant is required to have supplemental personal medical and repatriation insurance. Be sure that your insurance covers motorcycling holidays, as many insurance policies exclude such activities that they consider too dangerous or risky. Consult your local insurance agency before you come to Morocco. Most agencies offer insurance packages for a minimal cost.
Our fleet consists of BMW R12GS, R1250GS, F850GS/A, F800GS and F750GS motorbikes that are best suitable for the type of terrain we will be riding as it handles well on tarmac as well as dirt tracks and is relatively light to tackle technical rides as well.
We are transporting one 39l roll-bag per person in the support car. The larger items can be left at the Marrakesh hotel – where we will return the last day.

No. Morocco is the safest and most secure country in Africa with a significant part of the economy based on tourism that is obviously best protected. Although zero risk does not exist, while other parts of the world see unfortunate events, Morocco remains a destination of choice partly due to the safe environment provided by law enforcements.

By the way, being foreigners to this country, we wouldn’t even have considered settling down with our kids here if there were any risks involved.
