CONCEPT

An incomparable adventure

Created in 1990, this unique event brings together women aged 18 to 71 from around the world every year in the Moroccan desert.

These women, known as “Gazelles”, come to take part in a one-of-a-kind, memorable adventure.

With no selection criteria except determination, whatever their age or background, nationality or level of experience, the Gazelles are here for a unique competition:

  • Based on true values such as tolerance, solidarity and perseverance,
  • Where respect for the host country is given priority through social actions,
  • • That cares about the environment: the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is the only rally-raid in the world with ISO 14001 certification.

The Gazelles’ safety is our primary concern: the event organizer has a technological and human armada (350 organizers for 400 participants) at its disposal to track the teams’ progress and respond to calls for assistance…
While the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles marks a return to the roots of adventure, it is also on the cutting edge of technology with a satellite tracking system for optimal safety.

A HUMAN ADVENTURE

An eco-friendly adventure

Since 1990, the Rallye has been developing a new vision for motorsport: an original eco-concept without speed, where the goal is to drive the shortest possible distance.

With only traditional (non-electronic) navigation tools at her disposal, each participant plots her own off-road route for a return to the roots of Adventure with a capital A!

The Gazelles face a challenge every day with no electronic means of communication to help them: study the map and the day’s geographical coordinates, analyze the difficulties of the terrain, and choose the shortest path. Their goal is to reach a series of predefined checkpoints while driving the shortest distance rather than in the shortest time. They can choose to drive around a mountain or cross over it, drive through the dunes or avoid them.

 

Women’s values, Women of values

The Rallye is an event with strong values that has been bringing together inspiring women for more than 30 years.

The adventure pushes the Gazelles to go beyond their limits, help each other, adapt, open up to others… They share sincere and unique values and a common vision with a group of like-minded women.

It takes talent and determination to take part in this event… If this sounds like you, you’re ready for the Adventure !
