We are a team of Berbers who have grown up in the Erg Chebbi Desert area of the Moroccan Sahara.
I was born in the dunes to a nomadic family and this area of Morocco is my spiritual home. In 2018 I followed my dream to build my own camp in Erg Chebbi and to build it with an eco emphasis in order to minimise the environmental impact and maximise sustainable and responsible tourism.
The camp is called Tiziri which means moonlight in my Amazigh language and the silvery moon of our logo reflects my wild spirit and relationship with solitude.
Let’s make this very clear – we are not claiming that our camp has no adverse impact on the environment. That would be impossible and the very fact that we have to use fuel hungry 4×4’s to bring people and supplies to the camp each day means that we feel apprehensive to even begin to market ourselves as an eco-camp. However, we have made a huge step forward in terms of environmentally aware practices and are more than happy to shout that from the rooftops if it helps to raise awareness in the desert area and in Morocco in general.
Tourism has an impact on the environment in every conceivable way and we are just trying to reduce that impact right here, right now in our spiritual home – The Sahara Desert.
