It surely is steep and the campsite guy is a grumpy git.That's it outside the Bab Marrakesh
I guess from the sign that cars are allowed to park overnight, but not motorhomes,although I suspect that there was "room for negotiation"
Heading out to Imsouane today and it's a shame to see the negative reports, as it has been recommended to us. But then again, it was other people who told us camper cars were not allowed to park in Essaouira at all.
So I guess we will have to find out for ourselves.
We'll take the second road in, which I read is steeper but in better condition.
What campsite numb nutsI would not pay 200 MAD for a salad, a bit o fish and chocolate stuff, Captain Cockthruster ! But I would pay 200 MAD to hear your silky smooth voice my wonderful scrumptious nuts. Don't go past the campsite just south of Agadir, it's magnificent.
Welcome to Morocco.We are currently chilling and fiddling with the van at Asilah camping Echrigui. We can’t leave until the campsite man gives us our washing back! Judging by the cloud cover that might be awhile lol.
We are going to drive down the coast road slowly if the weather stays fair or fast if not. Loving Morocco so far...
Stayed there this time last year - we joined in the Valentine Day lunch goat (we think) roast.A recommendation to all Funsters heading past Agadir.
Check this place out guy's. CC20950 Camping Takat.
Your going to love the food, especially the tagines. The Marakesh restaurant in Tafroute does a stunning Kefta Tagine that members rave about, including me. €19.00 for washing sounds about right if you have asked them to do all your bedding, towels, draws, curtains, shirts, dresses, trousers, T-shirts, socks, blouses, knickers, bra's, throw's, carpets, curtains, vests, jumpers, jackets and coats ! I think you will get a bit more savvy as you gain more experience. The Moroccan people are fairly honest but if you allow them to take you to the cleaners they will do so with a smile on their face and a warmth in there heart. There is a decent launderette in Tafroute who charges by weight if I recall correctly and some of the women selling food bread etc on the wild camping spot will do your washing for you and deliver back to your motorhome for a very, very good price. This is also the place to buy your footware the shoe center of Morocco. While I'm here this is the place to get your Argon oil. Come back to me when you arrive and I'll give you the directions to the little shop we have always used and it's the real McCoy too.We’ve sorted SIM cards out fine in Tanger from a Maroc telecom shop.
we are getting used to tourist rates...
£4.60 for a delicious lunch of chicken etc, £6 per night camping inc electric but £1.80 to park the scooter and £19 for my washing...we need to get tougher at these endless negotiations
A bit more for you though Phil eh, theres a couple of kilo in a pair of your underpants isn’t there? and I don’t mean whilst your wearing them either my little poodle faker€19.00 for washing sounds about right
Only after eating one of your special curries you wonderful turdburglar !I like the doors too, Roadhouse Blues is a particular favourite!

‘Thanks Terry, be lovely to catch you up.Welcome to Morocco.
Weather gets better as you get further south - we're outside Essaouira and it's been hot and sunny although as I write it's gone a bit cloudy, which is forecast for tomorrow as well. Still hot though - and washing dries much quicker here too..........!
Stay in touch, maybe catch up with us - we're only pootling along.
i ts certainly remote enough for Ryanair. I wonder if they sell it as Agadir or Marrakech?Well we went into Essouria from Sidi Kaouki on the bus.
It took an hour, cost 7MAD each, each way and called at the airport which is served from Ryanair Stansted.

Well we are now in tafroute. We took the P1085 from Tata to igherm first, the road was good two way tarmac for the first 25miles then from tagmout village went to normal single tarmac with gravel verges. Going through the villages was interesting, bit skinny in places but all doable, but not for the faint hearted! Anyway from igherm to tafroute was mainly two way good tarmac with a small section towards tafroute single track tarmac. Anyway thanks for all the info, we are sitting back & chillin!Let us know how you get on if you take that route as we would probably want to do it ( the other way) next month

Are the dogs barking loudly all night at Imsouanne?For those heading South I have to agree that Imsouane is a difficult site to get to and in my opinion,although a very helpful worker it is NWTE
This is a new expression that I also apply to cucumber,lettuce and non alcoholic beer.......Not Worth The Effort.
Meanwhile some Maroc Telecom tips
A little feedback to @mousey and others to be careful about the cardboard scratch cards available for Maroc Telecom recharge..................matured in sweaty pockets they tend to fall apart when doing the scratching.
Our sim card was blocked after 5 attempts at guessing at the unscratched number but a call to the customer service centre did sort it out. Get the newer plastic ones from the official Maroc Telecom offices.
Also we pulled off the peage to visit the Marjane at Larache and enjoyed easy parking and diesel and our first Maroc supermarket experience.BUT they also had a Maroc Telecom shop with no wait to get a sim or recharge card which seems to take ages in Assilah.
Thanks for the up to date info.
Are the campsites up there busy at the moment?
The campsites are rammed & having been here before three times, we have never seen the guardian parking areas so full! Motorhomes everywhere! Oh & found the service point, still in use! Fenced in and only open between 9am & 6pm.

We couldn't stand them last year but liked it there
