Guesthouses and Hostelries of Character in Morocco

10th edition

The journey

So as to get another to strike the fatal blow he dared not strike for himself, a man in his fifties, bowed down by the failure of his business and the 4 years in purgatory that followed, decides to travel Africa right down to the Cape of Good Hope (it was, indeed, hope that he needed above anything else !) with his four-wheel drive and 22-year-old caravan, both bought second-hand for the purpose. A mighty epic lasting over 10 months, during which obstacle after obstacle had to be overcome.

29,835 kilometres later, driven uninsured over often extremely dilapidated roads and tracks, he attained his goal... (an impossibility, in the unanimous opinion of caravanning professionals and experts on Africa…).

Kaly, a young Malian of 29 met in Nouakchott, Jazz and Zimba, his two faithful little dogs, together with the many villagers who offered friendship and hospitality along the way, all contributed immensely to the success of this “Crazy gamble”, (as it was called by the media) which had them crossing countries such as Nigeria, racked with wars between ethnic groups and rebellions... Thanks to this long journey, the Man would gather back together the scattered fragments of his personal puzzle, regain his dignity, learn humility, reawaken his sense of adventure and go on to discover new horizons...
