Hi, I am Hassan, a nomad and grew up in the desert.
I live in the desert 12 km from tagounite in a nomad house in a little, abandoned nomad village in a beautifull oasis. We are happy to receive people to help us build this house. I will teach you the nomad life style and house building, making bricks, currently we are making bedrooms, a new kitchen and renovating a part of the terrace. We would love to learn about permaculture so we can fight the drought here. We have a livingroom and bedrooms and since a few weeks a new bathroom. We started to grow our own vegetables. We have 3 meals a day. The food we make here is varied and a lot.
It's very calm here and remote and the village is mostly empty. Shower is with bucket warm water.
Soon I will make our own hamam.
We work max 3 hours a day.
I am happy to take you on desert tour with me and show you the desert I grew up in.

A few times a week I go to tagounite, you can join me for shopping. There's a market twice a week.
There's also a nice hammam in tagounite.
We have internet.
We have a dog, rabbits goats and chickens.
I will take you to visit my family and you will meet my friends and experience real berber life.

During your day's off we take you to see the mountains, go swimming, take you to a wedding or go sand snowboarding.

We speak English, French, Arabic, berber

Bring a mosquito spray and washing powder to wash your clothes. Work clothes and shoes which can get muddy. Warm jacket, pyjama for the months nov, dec, jan, feb.

How to get here;

You can fly to marrakech or Ouarzazate. Flights to Ouarzazate are more expensive. And minimum twice a week there are flights from casablanca to zagora for around 60 euro with airarabia. Don't pay for the luggage online. Pay at airport. Costs 20 euro for non hand luggage.

Or with buss company supratours. Departure at 15.00 and arrival at 23.00 in zagora.
