SCRAMBLER DESERT INVASION

Imagine 35 riders from around the world. Triumph Scramblers, Royal Enfields, Ducati Scramblers, BMWs. Customized Harleys, plus the occasional sidecar. The magnificent dunes and sandscapes of the Sahara Desert. And, you. 

But with the help of the mechanic and medical team, almost all the riders (and their bikes!) shall make it back victorious.

SAND FESTIVAL

The pleasure of getting dirty.

Desert Map

Starting in Marrakech, the first day and motorcycle ride will bring you to Zagora: the Gateway of the Sahara Desert.

Over the next three days, you will cross the Sahara Desert, riding close to the Argelia border as you pass the small villages of Tafraoute, Merzouga, and Alnif on the edge of the Erg Chebbi dunes.

The ride won't be easy! Landscapes and tracks where the sand turns into rivers, oases, mirages, combined with high temperatures, will make this trip the most challenging motorcycle ride of your life but also the most rewarding.

    The Scram Africa is challeging, for the body, and for the mind. Yet, it was the perfect trip to make new friendships, see unforgettable places and ride my first sand storm.

FRIENDS ON THE DIRT

Each day we start riding early, after a short briefing. You will receive food and water supplies to last you the whole day so that each rider can travel at their own pace. Thanks to the digital roadbook, you will always know which route and direction to take, so there’s no chance of getting lost. 

Your support crew will follow behind in fully equipped 4x4 vehicles, together with a truck carrying your luggage, so nothing and no one will ever be left behind.
