The Moroccan road network has improved significantly these past few years with several highways built between the major cities. The secondary roads are also improving year after year and allow easily any vehicles to ride without further complication. The constant increase of tourists made the authorities realized the importance of the roads maintenance, which makes the majority of the road network in great conditions today.
There are 2 ways to understand this question. If you are referring to get attacked or get stolen, the risk is no higher than any other European country. The Moroccan authorities voted strict rules and laws to insure tourists’ safety. If we refer to the way the Moroccans drive, there are few things to know before hitting the road: Avoid driving by night (animals crossing the road, vehicles without lights…), Moroccan drivers usually do not know much about the driving code, so don’t expect them to use their turning lights or respect the give ways (yields), drive slowly in villages and be careful near the schools as all the kids walk home along the roads.
Left for a long time without regulations, most of the camping sites were way far from being as our European standards. However, since 2009, opening a camping site is going through a procedure with strict norms. Even if many camping sites still leave a lot to be desired, others owned and managed by Europeans offer great infrastructures and comfort. The “Gandini guide”, displays and rates all camping sites in Morocco.
Apart from the Atlantic coast (mainly around Agadir) where the police is strict with the motorhomes sleep over, the rest of the country is flexible. However, Morocco is not as prepared as other countries to welcome motorhomes outside camping ground. Don’t expect to find in the parking lots a way to fill out your water tank or remove your wastes. We encourage you to respect the environment leaving the spot you stayed at in the same conditions as you found it, taking all your garbage with you at all time. Be aware that a camping site will cost you most of the time under 10€. It is then worth it to pay an extra cost and gets the necessary installations to connect your motorhome.
We recommend booking the camping sites 2 weeks in advance especially during the holidays season. It is not necessary during the rest of the year.
