HIGHLIGHTS
  • In this oneofakind experience, become part of the biannual migration of nomadic Ait Atta tribes people, a tradition that has taken place through the Atlas Mountains of Morocco for over 4,000 years
  • Spend the week with a Berber family, getting to know them personally. You can even ask them to teach you some basic Arabic so you can communicate like a local!
  • Get involved in life on the road, learning how to organise a camp every evening (and pack it up each morning)
  • Experience ancient nomadic culture and participate in daily chores such as milking goats, tending animal herds and learning to bake bread in the traditional way
Starting and ending in Marrakech, the trip Morocco Expedition – Walking With Berber Nomads is a guided explorer trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Skoura, Bouyeghd, Aklim and 3 other destinations in Morocco. Morocco Expedition – Walking With Berber Nomads is a small group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Each year, thousands of people migrate into the High Atlas Mountains to escape the heat of the lower valleys. Following 4,000-year-old routes and guided by the seasons, these families are part of the nomadic Ait Atta tribes of southeast Morocco. In 2018, we’ll be joining such families on a special walking expedition through the mountains. Sleeping in moving campsites and partaking in daily chores – like animal herding and traditional bread making – you’ll meet locals in tiny Berber villages and breathe enough fresh air to last you a lifetime. This is a rare opportunity to form real connections with people from another part of the world, and experience an authentic, ancient and well-preserved way of life likely very different to your own.
