My name is Abde Errahmane. I come from a nomad family, half Touareg, half Berber, who spent all his life in the desert, moving from place to place until we stopped at the gate of the desert, around 60 km away from Zagora. I would like to share all of my knowledge about life on this harsh and alluring land with all people who are curious to learn about it.
If you decide to come and volunteer at my place, I will make your journey a haunting experience filled with magic.
I am building a house with my family with the intention to create an adjoining guesthouse for visitors to enjoy this way of life with us.
