My name is Mahjoub and I have a quiet place in the little village Bounou in the countryside near the desert. The village is in an oasis with many palm trees and other plants and birds. I want to build a camp with palm trees, a garden and mud brick bungalows inside an old kasbah. We use natural materials and different techniques. The farm of my family is just next to the camp.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We want to exchange ideas and teach you about building techniques and our culture, but we are also curious about your ideas and inspiration.
Also, we do some Reiki meditation here and in the summer you can try the sand hammam.
Make mud bricks, work with bamboo and wood to build mud walls and houses. We also use recycled materials like water bottles for the construction. You can also help with decorating the houses. Inside the houses, we will make tadelakt walls. We also want to build a Hammam on the site.
Some existing buildings need restauration.
In the garden you can help to prepare the soil and plant vegetables.
There is the possibility to camp. We will provide you with a tent as well as a matress and blankets. It is also possible to sleep inside.
We get fresh ingredients from the market and then we can cook and eat together.
The camp is easy to reach by bus or taxi. It is located in the village Bounou, located along the road to M'Hamid. In the village there are museums and many old kasbahs and historical objects. It is also possible to start desert trips from here.
