MAPS

  • Michelin 742 (Red) Morocco £4.99
    ISBN 2-06-100042-8
    This Map will serve adequately for all your needs. It is at 1/1 000 000 scale. An alternative is:
  • Rough Guide Morocco Map £4.99
    ISBN 1-84353-215-8
    Datum not quite as good as Michelin (it is the same scale) but has the advantage of being a rip proof plastic map – more resilient to abuse!

  • Specialist Larger scale Maps are difficult to obtain as the Moroccan government doesn’t like people having access to very detailed information. If you want to see what’s available currently contact http://www.themapshop.co.uk/ in Upton-on-Severn. I have 1/250 000 scale maps for some areas we will be travelling supplied by them. They will also laminate with a flexible waterproof finish which allows writing on with chinagraph pencil or felt-tips which can be cleaned off later.

  • Vehicle-dependent EXPEDITION Guide by Tom Sheppard
