“My 7-day tour through the desert with Hafid and his nomads was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The welcome and hospitality from Hafid’s family in Zagora was exceptionally warm, and the following days exceeded all my expectations.

Lahsen and Ali conjured up new, delicious and above all fresh dishes on our carpet every day – how they managed to do this for seven days without conventional refrigeration remains one of the many secrets of the nomads. They read our every wish from our dusty lips and conjured up a shady council seat with invigorating tea, fruit and nuts in no time at all. Hafid also tirelessly answered our many questions and gave us an insight into the beauty of his country, as well as the political background and everyday life of the nomads.

It’s amazing what can fit on a camel’s back and how much endurance and patience these sensitive and lovable animals showed us during this time. Their various “songs” of squeaking, bubbling, humming and chewing became a familiar and soothing background noise during our days together.

The beauty of the barren yet diverse landscape captivated me for long stretches. As did the silence and the incredible starry sky at night, which illuminated everything in silver, even under a new moon. Thanks to Hafid’s tracking technique, we learnt how many animals leave their tracks in the sand and are at home in the desert, where even the most diverse plants thrive and bloom under the most barren conditions …

The days went by far too quickly, no wonder the nomads don’t care about numbers, because everything is relative in the desert. And so I know that I want to come back relatively soon!”

Best regards

Thank you dear Hafid. Yes, it was another wonderful, fun tour. Your team is really great! And I was very happy to see Amlal again – he is such a special camel.
I’ll send you some pictures in the next few days and hopefully some new customers😊 this year.
Take care and all the best to you and your family and team. Regina and friends from Switzerland
