We returned from Morocco yesterday after a very successful trip to Morocco and I am happy to tell you that all your arrangements for our Jebel Sahro trek went perfectly.
Lhoussain was an intelligent and helpful guide and was very patient with my wife’s slow pace. Ibrahim’s food was great- fresh produce prepared to restaurant standard. Mohammed and Ahmed were efficient muleteers and I visited the latter’s home high above Berkou for afternoon tea.
We thought the trek had a good variety of scenery and two days of rain in early March meant there were flowers everywhere.
If you venture this far north please do let us know as we would be delighted to meet up with you here.
I am writing to thank you for the excellent trek in the Jebel Sahro which you organised for me last month. From beginning to end, all the arrangements worked very smoothly and I was so well looked after by my guide and by the muleteers/cooks. Their local knowledge was excellent and they were always willing to explain aspects of local Berber culture and of the terrain through which we passed. They were also assiduous in taking care of my comforts and supportive when I tended to lag behind. Amek, amek!
I was so impressed by their ability to put together a delicious lunch laid out on carpets to greet me when I arrived at the rest place. The evening meals were hot and tasty with tajine and couscous featuring and, again, the team’s ability to provide such quality food with limited resources was a tribute to their culinary skills.
As for the trek itself, I have to reach for my superlatives again. From the verdant valleys around Boumalne du Dades to the high pasture where we camped at Le Mers and on to the fantastical gorge before Irhissi, the scenery was uniformly stunning. But, the piece de resistance was towards the end with the amazing shapes of the gigantic volcanic plugs standing out of the landscape around Igli. And then the charm and comfort of Kasbah Baha Baha!
It was a truly memorable experience and I will recommend your company to friends. I am already planning to book with you again for Mgoun.
Yes, we had a great time. The trek was great. We saw no tourists for the first 8 days, then we only saw a few at Bab n’Ali, so that was great to feel really out in the wild.
Everyone who was working on the trip was great – guide, muleteers and cook.
We especially enjoyed the first 6 days of the trek, due to the scenery – the mountains and nomads – and that it felt more remote but it was all great.
We loved the Kasbah Baha Baha in Nkoub at the end of the trek. Will will definitely go back to Morocco – we just need to decide which area. Thank you so much for organizing everything; it all went smoothly.
Thank you once again for organizing our super trip. No doubt I will be contacting you in the future about another!
Best wishes, Helen.
Hope this letter finds you well. It took me a while to get my hands to writing this, but as they say “better late than never”.
We wanted to send you a thank you note for helping us organize our trekking in the beautiful Jebel Sahro at the end of December. The trek was absolutely amazing, and looking back now can definitely say it was the best part of our trip to Morocco (although the country itself is simply gorgeous, really one of the best trips we have taken). Needless to say, the scenery on the trek is mesmerising, very different from anything we have seen thus far.
Also, I want to pass along special gratitude for organising Lhoussain, as our guide. He did a great job – apart from the fact he is just genuinely a great person to be around, with all his love for his country, his people, the nature around, he is also a very skilful guide – sensitive to the needs of foreign trekkers, always thinking things through ahead of time, always willing to go the extra mile to make sure his tourists are really getting the best experience. Once again, it really was a pleasure to have him as a guide, and an honour to meet someone so genuine and true to himself.
Once again, thank you for helping us experience Morocco the way we did. We hope to be back one day and see more of the Atlas Mountains next time.
Best wishes, Larysa & Alexander
We had a wonderful time in Morocco; thank you so much for organising this. The arrangements went smoothly, and we were delighted with your choice of hotels.
Lhoussain was an excellent guide; he took very good care of us, gave good advice on timings and made sensible suggestions for modifications to the route. The three muleteers, too, were a cheerful crew.
We also had a very good cook (Ibrahim), and the food was plentiful and delicious – indeed by far the best we have ever had on trek. Our only suggestion on food would be to add muesli to the breakfast menu. The large dining tent, table and chairs were an unexpected luxury which we appreciated.
We really liked your choice of route. Many of the campsites were spectacular and we greatly appreciated the avoidance of pistes and the fact that we spent a lot of time high.
Thank you very much for the trek, it was truly even better than we had hoped it would be. The hotels, cooking on the trek, preparation and effort gone into by everyone involved was superb.
