Nomad homestay High Atlas mountains

In addition to a homestay in Jbel Saghro south of Morocco with nomads of Ait Atta, we also offer a homestay with the same nomad tribe families in the High Atlas mountains when they settle here between June and September after their annual travel from the south to their tribe land in the High Atlas.
The homestay with this tribe is a rare opportunity to experience the life o the last nomads in Morocco, see how they live each day taking care of themselves and their animals. The experience with nomads can be done in only three days with two nights in the nomad tent, but also the experience can be longer as much as you want it to be.
