From Marrakech to Merzouga
I am an adventure guide and tour operator with my brother. After nine years of guiding travellers from around the world in Morocco, my brother and I began organizing camel treks in Erg Chebbi Desert for one-night stays in the desert by camels. I also offer longer trips to live like the Nomad people in their old life. I also offer trekking trips through the Merzouga Desert, yoga meditations, and rental of 4×4 vehicles to explore the Merzouga area. The trips and tours avoid the sand dunes to respect the value of the nature. I enjoy helping guests discover the environment and teach about my culture.
I am a Berber born and raised in the desert with my family in southern Morocco. My childhood was one of a nomadic life, travelling around the desert with the family. Every month, we had to change homes looking for a green place for our animals of camels and goats.
My experience with guiding started by leading guests from several hotels through the Merzouga Desert. I have learned over the years many languages such as English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese along with my parents’ mother tongues of Berber and Arabic. Arabic is my second language from the same religion of Islam.
With my family, I constructed a small guesthouse in my village where my guests will meet the family and the Berber life to provide all guests’ needs to have a wonderful stay.
