Matthew Traver » ExplorerWeb »

Mauritania: Good security for at least 400km east, inland from the Atlantic Coast. Provinces near the Mali border, such as Adrar, Tagant, Hodh El Gharbi and Hodh Ech Chargui, may be less safe.

Western Sahara: Travel and access along the N1 Atlantic Route, running down the Atlantic Coast, is easy and safe. Expect a few military checkpoints.

Tunisia: Avoid the Libyan border zones and the far south, which is a military area.

The women-only Gazelle Rally in Morocco

The Rallye Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc is women-only event taking place over nine days in the desert, sleeping in a tent, navigating off-road with paper maps, and driving for up to 14 hours a day. And that’s if all goes well.

Lorraine Sommerfeld, for Driving.ca:

Established in 1990, the rally is a one of a kind adventure in competitive motorsports. Completely off-road in the Sahara desert, the women-only participants take to the dunes (and the cliffs and the rocks and the vegetation) in pairs using only compasses for navigation. So long, GPS and upscale nav systems; you’ll be sitting this one out. Same goes for binoculars, cell phones, laptops, zoom lenses and anything that could receive a signal. Quarantined for the duration.
