Experience nomad life in gorgeous oasis in Sahara desert tagounite Morocco Report
Location: Tagounite, Morocco
Hi i'm Hassan, a nomad and grew up in the desert.
I live in the desert 12 km from Tagounite, it's a nomad house in a little nomad village in a gorgeous 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 finishing the bedrooms, renovating living room and the kitchen. We would love to learn about permaculture so we can fight the drought here. 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.
Soon I will make our own Hammam.
We also have WiFi so you have good and unlimited internet access.
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.
We have 2 dogs, rabbits, chickens and goats, we want to make our own milk and cheese.
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, take you to a wedding or go sand snowboarding.
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.
