The Sahara Desert. What comes to mind? Camels? Endless sand dunes?

Maybe the occasional oasis or fleeting mirage? Welcome to the reality that is the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles, an all-female rally raid through Southern Morocco’s most beautiful and challenging terrain.

A rally raid by definition is a form of long distance off-road racing taking place over several days, with this particular event lasting nine.

From the breathtaking Erg Chebbi Dunes in southern Morocco along the Algerian border to the finish in the unique coastal town of Essaouira, Morocco, the environment of the entire event changes rapidly and limitless scenarios are wrapped around every cavernous corner. If you’re looking to completely immerse yourself into the unknown, you’ve found the right spot.
