Driving through Morocco in a Land Rover Defender

Overland Morocco Part 1

Having finally arrived in Africa after driving across Europe in my land rover defender it's time to start the journey across Africa.

Twenty years ago my wife and I packed up our life in the UK and set off to drive overland in our Land Rover Defender with the aim of driving all the way to the Cape Town in South Africa, a journey which will take us from coast to coast along the length and breadth of Africa (more than once).

The first country on the African itinerary is Morocco, and this video is the first part of our Moroccan experience as I set out on my African Overland adventure.

We visited Chefchaouen (also known as Chaouen) famous for it's blue houses, drive across the high Atlas Mountains and arrived in out first major Moroccan city - Marrakech (pronounced Marrakesh).

Because this journey was twenty years ago, there were no smartphones, no google maps, and no digital cameras. The photos taken on the journey were on transparencies, designed to be projected. I have taken photographs of some of those slides for the purpose of showing in this video.
