  • Description


    Hi there. We are lehcen and hassan. We are nomads who grew up in the desert. We lived with our family all our lives here. Unfortunatly our family moved to tagounite because of the waterproblem. But we love it here so much. We want to live here. So we are looking for people who want to help us rebuild the house. We have bedrooms and there's enough space to relax. There's a room where you can take shower. We also have animals. We need help with building the house.
    Now we need help with making bricks, walk with us and our dromedares and goats and sheep so they can eat, carry sand for the bricks, feading our chickens, rabbits, goats and sheep, walk the dogs, renovate living room and bedrooms.
    We cook traditional Berber food.
    If you want we can teach you.
    We also have a nomad oven and often we make fresh bread.
    There is enough to do here like visiting tagounite, the market, desert, walking to the mountains, go to weddings, meet my family and friends.
    We work max 3 hours a day usually after breakfast, at end of afternoon and at night you have free time.

    You can get here with ctm or supratours busses.
    From marrakech every day buss leaves at 11 and is in tagounite at 21.
