Abdou grew up in one of the Sub Saharan Berber villages in the Draa Valley. He came from large family and has great experience working with tourist as camel guide, later driver and recently running tour operator company. He get to know Hamid while working together in tourism. They became close friends and made their dream come true, building this magnificent "oasis" in Erg Chebbi sand dunes.
Hamid grew up in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi and knows every sand dune. He has been organizing camel treks and was responsible for many desert camps there. He felt sad that the desert is becoming too busy, full of people. That was his reason developing this Luxury camp to offer still peace of quietness and solitude that the desert should be.

We are learning about how to be the most ecological to the natural environment but we already take the following steps to ensure conscious tourism without leaving negative impact on the environment:
Our trip last year 2019 to Morocco has been amazing! We had let Jana to tailor an itinerary for our needs for 16 days around the country. We wanted to see as much but not be on the road every day and she has just done it. We saw some beautiful parts of the country from the blue city, Fes ,Marrakech. Our highlight was absolutely the 2 nights spend glamping in the Sahara. The accommodation was excellent. We get the opportunity to stay in highly luxury riads, Desert Luxury camp in Sahara (highly recommend) but also more basic riads which was very nice and gave us home feel. Our felt gratitude goes also to our driver Abdou that we spent lot of time with. He has become a life long friend to us! Thank you!
