Overland Try-out Expedition for the Unimog and Zetros long-distance camper vans in Morocco.
Kevin Kooijman stands in the hot desert sand, giving out instructions. How do you operate the winch? How do I get myself out of difficult situations? How should I best act in the group? The experienced rally driver and tour guide prepares his participants for every eventuality, however extreme – because, after all, that is exactly why they came here. After several exercises and experimenting, the adventurers have learned another lesson – and are now travelling through the Moroccan Sahara.
A unique combination: Overland Travel and Bliss Mobil.
The participants on the tour are on a training expedition: designed specifically by Overland Travel and bodybuilder Bliss Mobil, the trip focuses on the optimum preparation of Special Trucks owners for future short and long-term expeditions. By learning to handle the expedition vehicle with confidence in order to help themselves and others in difficult situations, at the end of the trip the drivers are equipped for any challenge.
Motor racing trainer Kooijman teaches the participants a lot about their trucks, the technology behind them and of course driving off-road: driving techniques, the use of towing aids and using a tyre pressure adapted to the terrain are important lessons on the way to becoming an off-road champion.
A world of contrasts: Morocco.
Over the 3000 kilometres, the Unimog and Zetros drivers learn all about the perils of sand dunes, steep mountainsides and soft sandy beaches. A completely different environment to experience every few hours during the drive – that only happens in Morocco. It is very turbulent during the 16 days – including that rally feeling. Either you travel over land yourself or you leave the transport of the Special Trucks to the starting point in the safe hands of Overland Travel.
