Camel trekking and overnight stays with nomads in cooperation with the nomad families of Jebel Bani Mountains in southern Morocco: with our offer of trekking and trekking plus homestay we provide an income to the people of the desert areas, which allows nomads to continue living in their environment and their culture, and thus are not forced by poverty to emigrate to cities.
Our trekking tours of 5-15 days lead off tourist beaten track on ancient nomad pathes and caravan ways, on the daily hiking trails of the shepherds through the varied and fascinating stone wilderness of Jebel Bani, through dunes, over hamada and through oases. On our caravans with visit of local families, you will experience life and culture of the nomadic people of the desert.
Our treks are safe; they are accompanied by Berbers of Ait Atta and move on tribal lands.The treks are conducted from one person up to groups of eight people.
Season: Homestay and trekking mid-September to the end of May, round trips all year

We will walk through the dune areas of, inter alia, Chentouf, Sdraa and Smar, where we prefer those areas off the jeep and fun tourisms. In the vastness of Sahara, the caravan moves alternately over sandy plains - covered with colorful pebbles and prehistoric pottery shards - and through dunes of varying heights. We will see old Islamic shrines to which nomads have pilgrimed until today. In oasis of acacia, palm and tamarisc we will spend our lunch breaks or put on the night camp.
