No question, Morocco is the go-to destination these days, especially for Europeans seeking adventure just beyond their doorstep. Until the political and social unrest settles down in neighbouring Algeria, this is where we’ll get our wilderness and desert kicks. And if Morocco is on your agenda then we urge you to start your trip with a tour through the pages of Chris Scott’s most excellent ‘Morocco Overland’. This is like no adventure book you’ll have seen before. Some 240-pages long it gives nearly 80 pages over to some properly insightful and no-doubt hard won local knowledge and know-how. The pages that follow offer route after route based on what must be going on 30 years of wanderings in the region by Scott. To quantify: 65 routes, collectively 12,000km. And given these are routes Scott’s ridden himself they’re definitely moto-suitable (he grades the difficulty, the scenery) and there are even coordinates given for all the key turns and landmarks. The detail is mind boggling, yet the presentation is crystal clear – it’s super-accessible. As the saying goes, ‘you can’t buy this stuff’. Only it turns out you can – in this book. It’s so good it’s now into its third edition and it’s full colour, too. You could liken it to being a Lonely Planet guide for the adventure rider, only it’s better than that. Even five stars doesn’t do it justice. A proper tour de force.
