Morocco really is the closest faraway place.

We will select the hotels/auberges/campsites as we roll, we need to be flexible and account for possible wild camping if the need arises. We have left out the cost of camping/auberge/hotels as you may wish to mix the 3 depending on your own requirements. You do need to be prepared to wild camp and be self-sufficient. IE basic camping equipment, cooking equipment, table chairs, cool box, or fridge. 4 seasons sleeping bag. Some form of tent.
