Morocco Expedition – Walking with Berber Nomads

From: £785.00

Each year, Berber communities migrate into the High Atlas Mountains to escape the heat of the lower valleys. Following 4000-year-old routes and guided by the seasons, these families are part of the nomadic Ait Atta tribes of southeast Morocco. On this eight-day adventure, you will join a family on an unforgettable 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 see the true wilderness of Morocco. This is a rare opportunity to form connections with locals and experience an ancient and well-preserved way of life, far from your ordinary. Highlights/r/n
