SUNDAY: departure from Marrakech and drive across the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate for lunch and on to Boumalne Dades for the night, through the Valley of the Pinks/Roses.
Valley of the roses (both the flower and the colour of the rocks)
MONDAY : drive to Erfoud, lunch afternoon prologue (how to read a road book, drive in sand and a 3 hours rally using your navigational skills)
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: Follow the roadbook to checkpoints: this requires a bit of concentration both to navigate and drive across varied terrains. Also plenty of time to admire the sceneries and take photos.
A moment of relaxation for lunch(here in Tassardmine)
Lovely clean hotels in the desert by the dunes of Merzouga
Finding all the checkpoints doing the least amount of kms will lead you to victory
Thursday: navigation drive to Zagora for the final evening. Dinner, musicians (and dancing)
