Drive Your Own Vehicle - Vehicle Equipment

  While we provide some of the essential vehicle equipment , there are a few bits and bobs that will make your time in Morocco more fun. The key is not to overload your vehicle because every extra kilogram counts against you not only in fuel economy but in handling and performance in the sand.

In addition to having the originals, photocopy everything twice in colour, leave one copy at home and take the originals and 1 copy with you, packed separately in your car.
