CAR RAID

An extraordinary adventure,
with no pressure,
at your own pace,
following the footsteps of the most famous African rallies.

Participants will learn and / or improve their skills in navigating
and crossing dunes whilst discovering Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal
like many will never have the chance to. 
They will benefit from all the infrastructure of the rally,
as well as the security and the unique bivouac in the wilderness.


Emotion, discovery, conviviality, the key words of AFRICA ECO RAID.
