Marocco, political situation

I'm off to morocco in about 4 weeks time, on 4 wheels rather than 2, about 5-6 days off road
route includes Cacade d ouzoud, Todra Gorge, Zagora, Chegega.......its not too difficult a route, we are going with other vehicles, but the plan is not to convoy but each vehicle takes its own time on a planned route.

My question is for those who are in Morocco at the moment or who have very recently travelled. what is the security position like, given the problems throughout the Arab world and the very recent killing of a tourist in Algeria.

my Country does not pay ransoms and I don't really want my family to see me in an orange jump suit!

Thanks

Morocco is incredibly safe. It's been run by a stable monarchy for decades, and the Arab Spring uprisings hit it rather lightly. The border between Algeria and Morocco has been closed for 30 years, so there's very little spill over from other north african countries experiencing the kind of unrest you're worried about.
