Currency

Dhirams. 1=10.2Dh

Fuel costs

6-7Dh (around 0.60)

Places to stay/camp

Sale (Rabat) - Camping de la Plage , clean well organised and easy to find. Rest of the time we bush camped, which is relatively easy and the local people are curious, but not intrusive.

Other information The people were all exceptionally friendly, except for the odd stone-throwing child.  The police officials were all remarkably helpful and genuinely keen to know how we were enjoying Morocco.  The country is looking very green and lush after all the rain.  Some large, European type supermarkets and good local cuisine.

Overall rating

Excellent - a great way to start in Africa

We have listed Western Sahara separately for fuel information.
