Meet the Local


I'm Moha from Sahara Desert Merzouga , I have found my passion for Culture and Language amongst the majestic sand dunes in the south east of Morocco ” Erg Chebbi”, which is located in Merzouga village. There me and my family led a Nomadic path, wandering through the desert with our family and camels possessing only a tent for shelter. I'm very passionate about educating and informing the general public about our culture and little-known nomadic way of life and about all the great secrets that Morocco holds. I would like to share with you the life of Morocco and the nomadic people in the Sahara Desert. A way of life in a stunning part of the world which by its very nature allowed you to reconnect with yourself and go home with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
