Dear sweet people!
My name is Redouane. I come from a nomad family, I spent all my life in the desert, moving from place to place until we stopped at the gate of the desert, Erfoud.
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 guest house with my family with the intention to create an adjoining for visitors to enjoy this way of life with us.
Marhaba welcome 🙂
