Western Sahara - Disputed Territory in a Land Rover Defender

Morocco Part 2: Christmas in the Sahara Desert & Western Sahara

Sahara desert, kasbahs and landmines. In this second part of my Morocco overland journey we enjoy Christmas in the Sahara Desert & join a Military Convoy through the disputed territory of Western Sahara.

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).

Other highlights of this video include Ait Benhaddou, Oarzazate and historic kasbahs, and Agadir on the Atlantic coast of Morocco.

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.
