Head to the Wilderness

We will collect you from your riad or hotel after breakfast and head immediately into the High Atlas Mountains, where you’ll enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views of soaring, snow-capped peaks dropping dramatically into deep canyons and valleys. We will stop along the way to take in some of the best jaw-dropping vistas, giving you the opportunity to take the first of many, many photos on the tour.

Once we have traversed the Atlas Mountains, we will reach the awe-inspiring Ait B...Read All

Explore Stunning Gorges and Magical Desert

After breakfast, you’ll set out for Todra Gorge, your first stop of the day. A magnificent chasm in the limestone bedrock, plunging as far as 300m, the naturally formed canyon, carved over thousands of years by the Togdha and Dades rivers, it’s an incredible sight to behold. You’ll get the opportunity to explore the area, feeling dwarfed by the huge walls of rock that rise above you in rugged cliffs and swirls of colour.

The journey continues to Merzouga, and this is ...Read All

From Vast Desert to Alpine Hilltops

We start our third day early to begin our camel trek back to your hotel, during which you’ll catch a beautiful Sahara sunrise in the midst of the tranquility of the dunes, watching as the stars slowly melt into the ever more blue sky. We’ll arrive back at the hotel for breakfast, a shower, and a general refresh.

Then, we’ll depart for Fes. On this journey through arid plains and dusty valleys, we’ll stumble across an oasis of lush green at Ziz Valley. A river of...Read All

Hectic Fes and Addictive Chefchaouen

We’ll depart from the riad after breakfast, and head out to explore Fes. A city steeped in culture and history, bursting with life and crackling with chaos, an adventure through Fes is exactly that, an adventure. You’ll never know what you’ll find around the next shaded ally corner; a picturesque square with delicate water features, a street piled with food stands, an ancient tannery still in operation…

Fes has so much to offer and countless enthralling places t...Read All

Experience the Gateway to Africa

We begin our final morning with breakfast, before setting out for Tangier. Boasting a pleasant coastal promenade, vibrant souks and hectic markets of glittering lampshades and fragrant piles of spices, the gateway between Africa and Europe is a great place for exploration.

Its multicultural community and buzzing arts scene has attracted a wide variety of visitors and residents alike, from Tennessee Williams to the Rolling Stones. The port city is the country’s most important trad...Read All

Hamid and Gilly

Hamid was raised as a nomad. His family lived a nomadic life until he was about 6 years old.  Hamid’s family of 10 then settled in a remote desert village.  Family is everything to him.  Hamid is from the Amazigh tribe. “Amazigh” means free people.  He speaks five different languages:  Berber, Arabic, English, Spanish and French.  Hamid is a great people person – with a good sense of humour.  He is very in tune with nature and he enjoys showing his country to travellers. He worked as a cameleer when he left school, taking visitors on camel treks into the Saharan sand dunes. There, he mastered the art of playing the soulful African drums, as entertainment in the evenings.  It has always been Hamid’s dream to ... Read All

Hamid was raised as a nomad. His family lived a nomadic life until he was about 6 years old.  Hamid’s family of 10 then settled in a remote desert village.  Family is everything to him.  Hamid is from the Amazigh tribe. “Amazigh” means free people.  He speaks five different languages:  Berber, Arabic, English, Spanish and French.  Hamid is a great people person – with a good sense of humour.  He is very in tune with nature and he enjoys showing his country to travellers. He worked as a cameleer when he left school, taking visitors on camel treks into the Saharan sand dunes. There, he mastered the art of playing the soulful African drums, as entertainment in the evenings.  It has always been Hamid’s dream to have his own tour company and show people around his country, so he left his life in the desert to follow this dream. He is passionate about showing visitors the authentic Morocco and its vibrant and rich culture.

Gilly was born and raised in Zimbabwe. She has a passion for travel and Africa is in her blood, so when she got the chance to visit Morocco, she took it and immediately fell under its spell. She has visited countless times and there is always something new to see and experience. The Sahara Desert is one of her favourite places in Morocco,  along with the mountains, the Atlantic coast, The Blue City, Fes, Volubilis and the enchanting chaos of Marrakech! She loves the vibrant culture and the people who are as warm as their sunsets. On Gilly’s first adventure in Morocco, she met Hamid who regaled her with stories of life in Morocco. They both share a passion for authentic experiences and for nature and so the partnership for their tour company was born.

We aim to include all the elements of an unforgettable, awe-inspiring experience in our tours and excursions.  Hamid has extremely strong family values and this is extended to our guests, who are cared for as if they were family.

At the end of your time with us, we want you to return home with Morocco firmly in your hearts. We will explore the off the beaten track secrets of Morocco and discover its hidden treasures.  Authenticity is important to us and we want to show you the real Morocco.

Whether it is camel trekking the evocative Sahara Desert and spending a night under a breath-taking sky full of stars, spending a day in the life of a nomad family, indulging all your senses in the vibrant atmosphere of Marrakech, wandering the enchanting and artistic blue streets of Chefchaouen, taking an authentic Moroccan cooking class and creating a delicious tagine, marvelling at the stunning, mystical architecture and beautiful mosques, exploring snow-capped mountains, ancient Roman Ruins, visiting women’s argan cooperatives, towering mountain waterfalls,  enjoying sand, sea and surf on our North African beaches, we will ensure you have the best time and a wonderfully memorable experience.

As a result of the hardships Hamid endured in his nomadic childhood in Morocco empowering local communities and preserving their culture is very important to him. Our tours are created to give back to the local communities, to help ensure food and water security, employment, education and self-sufficiency.

What our travellers are saying...

We had a wonderful 5 days discovery tour of Morocco with Hamid. It was a relaxing as well as efficient way to get a glimpse of this beautiful country, starting in Marrakesh and ending up in Tangier, with Fes and the desert in between. The minibus was comfortable and well driven, and the hotels carefully chosen. Hamid was also flexible and responsive to our special requests.
