  • Description


    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.
