Mohamed is a Berber from the nomadic desert people of the Sahara and has extensive local knowledge and experience of Morocco and the areas visited by Moroccan Journeys. He grew up in M’hamid El Ghizlane, the doorway town to the Sahara desert and his family lived in Erg Smar, a desert village which was abandoned when the water from the Draa River dried up, making life unsustainable. He knows the Sahara desert intimately, how to navigate it and how to stay safe in any conditions. He speaks fluent English, French and Arabic and has spent all of his working career in tourism and so understands the needs of the modern traveller. Mohamed loves nothing more than making sure visitors to his country have a warm welcome, a safe journey and an insight into the real Morocco.
