    Does anyone know of any groups that go to Morroco ? We are thinking it safer in numbers and tag along with experienced vans that have done the trip before.

    There will most probably several Funsters crossing from Algeciras to Morocco in Jan. we will definitely be one of them sometime between 10th - 16th Jan
    If you are going to do the crossing in October then if nobody here responds do as suggested above and go to the Lidl car park in Algeciras. there will be loads of motorhomes there before crossing the next day.
    Pound to a penny some of them will be Brits who will be pleased to let you travel with them.
    But in any case we found Morocco as easy and as safe as Spain (if not safer!). If you have the Vicarious book, the Michelin map, and a smattering of French you will be fine. It really is the fear of the unknown more than anything else that puts people off. And it shouldn't.
    Read the Morocco 2013 thread as it will give you plenty of pointers, places to go, things to do, things to avoid etc.
    If you have any sense of adventure you will love it. - JUST DO IT!

    the lidl you need isnt algerciras its los barios between gib and algi .loads will be there . most go for 90days as thats the standard entry visa . juan carlos at voyages normandie will sort you . him and his daughters are the top ticket place .

    Thanks

    Well thanks all for the info.Spent some hours reading the 2013 trip and would like to do it but it seems a 2014 trip is in the planning stage for Jan to March.We always spend those 3 months in India (Goa) so looks like we will have to give it a miss.BUT we will do it one day if some decide to do a pre xmas run.

    Hi mojo
    I placed the morocco 2014 as a suggestion just to get a feel for who may be interested in going so Elaine and I could have some like minded people around for some help and support
    There are no firm dates set let for anybody as far as I know
    Put up your travel plans with dates and see what happens you may find someone has similar ideas

    Elaine and will not setting firm plans till after our daughter gives birth in September so it will probably be November before all the cooing and arring is over so we can work out what we are doing

    I am sure someone will be going before Xmas try it nowt to loose
