Early August, we thought it was going to be unbearably hot and well, it was hot but it was super fun! Those guys are the best! Really, lots of laughs, we learned a lot about their culture and customs, different from the rest of Morocco.

We were on a tight schedule and only spent three days, and coming from Marrakech (which is a long trip) we could only do the typical tour is everywhere. BUT! we were left with the immense desire to visit a nomadic family still in the desert and some other village.

Lhoussine, very kind, invited us to meet her family, her house and her daily life.
Spending the night in the desert was GREAT, and the sky was spectacular. A lot of calm after great moments.

Highlights overview

Ait Ben Haddou

After landing in Marrakech, your first trip should be Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. One of Unesco’s World Heritage Sites is the area where Berber Touareg used to trade and live after fleeing Tomboctou.


The city of Ouarzazate is located in Morocco’s southernmost region. It is a thriving cultural heritage and creative legacy city, and its name is taken from a Berber term that means “without noise” or “without confusion.”

With a large number of hotels, Ouarzazate is a popular Moroccan tourist destination. There are approximately 38 thousand people who live there. Travelers typically make it one of their favorite stopover on their way to the Sahara Desert. Most of them stop here to resupply before continuing on to the Great Deserts.


The Sahara, one of Africa’s most spectacular natural wonders, is right in front of you, not in a geography book. The horizon-expanding golden sand dunes and the white sun of the desert are now visible. The view is breathtaking, and the dunes appear to go on forever.

Only tours are permitted in the Sahara; individual travel is not permitted. The primary reason for doing so is to ensure the safety of tourists. On the tour, you will hear true Berber music and melodies, enjoy some of their traditional cuisines, and learn about their way of life.
