Cape Town - TopCar’s Calvin Fisher VLOGs about his journey to Moroco to test drive the new Navara.

Check out his series of updates incorporating the Atlas Mountains and riverbeds and the eight flights over five days it took to get there: 

Long journey ahead

You’re a South African right? So when you hear you’re getting to drive the new Nissan Navara in Morocco you think, “sure – that’s not even off the continent, should be easy.” 

But no, first there’s the matter of flying to Johannesburg. After that a connecting flight to Paris. But you’re not done yet because then you’re off to Barcelona for the next 24 hours. Again, not a problem, the fellas at Nissan sweetened the deal for us with a visit to Camp Nou, FC Barcelona’s home stadium.

Then they fattened us up and stuck us bicycles. Excellent.

Then it was time at last for that final flight to Errachidia airport in Morocco where the police would take our passports and return them after our first test drive. That’s a lot to take in. Luckily I documented most of it.
