Meet Mustapha

Ask a question

I am Mustapha, a postgraduate from M'hamid El Ghizlane, a small town in the desert. I have been working in tourism industry for years during which i acquired valuable experience in the domain. My goal is to provide some authenticity to my clients , that is to offer some authentic experiences that will make my clients immerse in the life of people from the Sahara desert.


Location


We booked a 6 day tour with Mustapha and our driver was Mbarak. Both of them are extremely passionate about their profession and the guys did an amazing job showing us their country. Our tour started in Marrakesh, continued over the Atlas mountains into the gorges of Boumalne Dades, then Sahara and back to Marrakesh with plenty of stops on the way to discover local food, traditions and crafts. Since both of the guys are local to the desert, we got to see places and try experiences in that region that would not be possible otherwise (e.g. we were invited for berber tea with Mbarak's mum).
