4K - DJI Phantom 4 in MOROCCO


While the North African nation of Morocco has a substantial population of over 35 million, most of its people live on or near the coast.   Much of the country's enormous area of 710k square km or about 275k square miles is sparsely populated, and large areas of its desert lands are virtually unpopulated.  In this drone video by Salaheddine, you'll get a sense of the vastness of the interior of this fascinating country, one of the only countries in Africa which was able to avoid foreign domination.
