Moulay Bousselham – A Twitchers Town

Posted by on April 15, 2012

We visited the town of Moulay Bousselham which is a nice little town on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, and possible to get to and from the ferries in one day.

We called into this town on Hilda’s recomendation, and it was a good recomendation! We stayed on a campsite down by the lagoon “Camping Caravan international” which the guidebook said was swarmed with Mozzies, but it was all clear while we were there due to the temperature, and the wind.  When we were there we went into the shop/restaurant and saw they had a few photos on the wall of trucks that stayed there previously, and I was suprised that we recognized 4 of them!

The yellow mog belongs to these guys, on route to Mongolia. I saw their mog in Atkinson Vos, and we tried to meet in Morocco but it did’nt happen. The white mercedes is Stonne and Hildas (Actually its Hilda’s, Stonne is allowed drive). The white Man we think is Stonne’s friends (Erik and Nellie) truck, and the Mowag is the one that we camped with some weeks back.

We had read of a birding guide there, Hassan, and we made contact with him through the Milano Cafe on main street. He brought us out the next morning in his boat, along with 5 others, and we had a good morning. Photography wise, I was limited to bringing a 300mm lens, as the boat was too small and not stable enough for the 600. Dang 🙁
