Moto Aventures

With nearly 25 years in action, MOTOAVENTURES organises fully supported motorcycle adventures around the Kingdom of Morocco, off-road on our KTMs & both on & off-road on BMWs. For private groups we arrange BMW adventures in South Africa & Lesotho.

MOTO AVENTURES started in 1996 organising quality guided off road tours around Andorra, the Southern Pyrenees and the Mediterranean and exciting adventures in the Atlas Mountains & Sahara Desert of Morocco. In 2007 we began our touring adventures on BMW GS1200s across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe and in 2015 held our first road tour into Morocco from Spain on the BMWs. Owned and run by John Griffiths and Su Downham, Moto Aventures was born as the result of an idea John had whilst spending two winters biking across Africa from London to Cape Town. In Morocco we use a selection of 3* and 4* hotels, most styled on the old kasbahs. (fortified houses) One night the accommodation is an actual 200+ year old kasbah that has been totally renovated and conditioned to be a hotel. The night in our desert bivouac, 60 kms from tarmac, is always a highlight. After a good meal we sit around the campfire and listen to some local musicians. Southern Africa is stunning African lodges and tented camps, combined with wild life safaris and sun-downer river cruises. Your safety is an extremely important issue to us and one that we have spent a lot of time and money investigating, so as to enable us to offer you the best possible service. We are unique in that ON ALL OUR ADVENTURES, we install, FREE of charge, a GPS on your bike, have multiple Sat phones, assistance vehicles, and leaders with medical knowledge supported with a comprehensive professional medical kit, including defibrillator, vacuum splints and even oxygen.

Misión: To offer you the adventure of your life

The windy, lunar landscape of the Djebel Saghro mountains. Originally the Eastern end of the AntiAtlas they are now separated by the Draa Valley.
This is where our "monument" valley is located.

You asked about the happiest times of my life? #tbt
.
I think this very moment, this evening, the MOROCCAN 8 indulging a marvelous sunset, our faces radiating everything you need to understand, up at Johnny’s bar, is the dang epitome!
.
I would start a war for each and everyone of these fearless, strong, resilient and mad, mad ladies. THIS is what it’s all about! And this is what keeps me going through the hardships I, we all, find us in these days. We will reclaim these times of unbounded joy and happiness!

TOGETHER FOREVER, STRONGER THAN EVER 🧡

FLASHBACK (Part 2)
An island in the Sahara.
It was midday & the sun shone as we gazed at the expanse of water around us.
We carried picnic stuff so all OK in the food dept. By sat phone the Zagora hotel was told we wouldn't be arriving. Remlia was not visible but we exchanged torch flashes with them so they knew we were there.
By 3 the sky was dark, the lightening was much worse & we felt that bikes & 4x4 made us very vulnerable for a hit on our island.
We gathered wood, etc & had supper round the campfire. At night, myself & Niki wrapped up in a tarpaulin; 1biker in the cab; 2 inside the cargo area & Johnny & @ianhaslop lay fully kitted on the big rocks left hot after the fire.
Next day we were all cold & damp. The waters had receded but the rivers were still flowing. The guys went out wading, then with the bikes to see the conditions. The knack was to ride at full speed to keep the bike 'floating' on the mud & keep the wheels freed up.
At midday we abandoned the Pig & the bikers rode to the river while I waded through 30cms of thick mud. Very painful between the toes!
At the river we got the 5 bikes across by building rafts from inner tubes. We were met at the other side by the villagers who had made us a splendid meal. Soldiers were there & asked if I could go with them to the barracks at Taous to speak with the commander of the army in Rabat and assure him we were all OK. It turned out they had attempted to send a helicopter from Rabat to 'save' us but due to the storms it couldn't get across the Atlas. We were reported on the TV news as 'woman & child' marooned on a desert island.
The bikers rode to Ouarzazarte & continued their journeys home & Niki & I hitched a lift back there too.
Just another day at the office! 🤔

@ Sahara Desert!

FLASHBACK to 2000. (part 1)
Many of you have heard our story of how we spent 24 hours trapped on an "island" in the Sahara. For those who haven't :-
We were seven: Johnny + 4 on bikes, myself & my son of 12 in The Pig. Travelling from Merzouga to Ouzina we crossed rivers & saw our track in the chott (dry lakebed), filling with water. At one point the sky went orange. We took to the dunes.
An early start to ride the 25kms across the higher dunes to our desert fuel stop at Remlia. There, two French guys (Honda XR400 & a Suzuki 650 that had probably never seen a mechanic & was way too big for him) asked to join us for the section to Zagora.
After Remlia is the biggest dry lakebed fed by the 5 main rivers, full of fesh fesh (a very fine powder from pulverised mud) & camel grass bushes. There was a little water running in the first river we crossed. Then we were into the fesh-fesh tracks. The bikers went on ahead but were held up by the Suzuki rider who kept dropping his bike. His decompression lever was broken so that made it worse!
On reaching the next river it was running too fast so they turned around & we all headed back to Remlia - very fast! I was seeing the water slowly making its way along my tracks, turning the fesh fesh back into mud. Sticky stuff!
Arriving back at the first river it was now a raging torrent & impassible - so we found ourselves trapped in a 'lake' that hadn't seen water for nearly 15 years & was fast filling up!
Johnny told me to find a higher bit of land & get everyone up on it while he went back to rescue Mr Suzuki. Standing on the bonnet I saw just one rocky outcrop, so we set off & riding fast got to it before the water caught us. Johnny arrived with Mr Suzuki, & within 15 minutes we were totally surrounded by fast swirling muddy water. Our home for the next 24 hrs was approx 100m by 250m, & about 1m above the eventual water level.
It's a strange feeling alone on an impromptu desert island in a lake surrounded by mountains & dunes; with loud thunder, big lightning, but not a drop of rain. The result of huge storms far away in the High Atlas, we were caught in the flashflood!

FLASHBACK to 1995
The year we sent the Super Tenere 750 ahead to Nairobi & then travelled around Tanzania with setting up MOTOAVENTURES in mind.
Our lunches would be fresh samosas sold by children at petrol stations, followed by mangos bought from roadside vendors.
Here's John eating dessert.
This was the bike he rode from London to Cape Town during '91 &' 92.

FLASHBACK Feb 98. FIRST EVER TOUR IN Morocco. With #macmcdiarmid
📷Su
Having trailored the bikes down from Andorra, camped & caught the ferry at Tarifa, we then spent about 7 days living in our roof tent in Tangiers customs, by the trailer, before being allowed through. The port was full of glue sniffers & thieves in those days.
The tour started at Michlifen, south of Fes, one of 2 ski resorts in Morocco. Snow was our first experience in this country known for its dunes & desert. The very rocky tracks over the High Atlas were amazing. Unfortunately most of them have been paved now.

We were very ambitious with our roadside lunch plans. Johnny decided we should serve a hot meal... sorry, I should.... so every night in our hotel rooms, I'd be making a stew in our pressure cooker on a bunsen burner. The beef came in vacuum packs from my local butcher in Andorra! We even supplied a camp stool for everyone. I nipped that idea in the bud pretty quickly!!!

Johnny & his brother Guy had done the recce in early autumn 97, and failed to realise that the lovely pretty local inns they chose with their colourful flower filled terraces, covered in vines & bunches of grapes were barren in February when we went through. 😂

The trip went very well, and we learnt a lot, the main thing being that 12 days was too long for an offroad tour! So at the end of the year, after the catastrophic accident with our "Pig", we upped & moved further south to our lakeside house at Bin el Ouidane in the High Atlas mountains.

Lasting 12 days we travelled the tracks in the High Atlas, Imilchil, Merzouga, across the desert to Zagora, Draa valley and lots more. Mac Mcdiarmid wrote our first colour spread in Bike magazine called "Rock the Kasbah". Anyone know how we could get a copy of it?
