Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Atlas Mountains walking holiday, Morocco

Environment

This trekking tour follows the old trading caravan route between the green and fertile plains of the north and the dry Sahara South. Walking along the Ounilla valley, the customers will get a deep insight on how water is vital in this part of the country. Walkers will be in close contact with nature and the guide and the crew demonstrate how we conserve water by avoiding swimming and washing in the rivers and storing water for cooking in jerry cans). The kitchen staff cook with gas instead of wood.

The trek follows the designated mule paths and avoids walking through fields. The luggage and supplies are carried by mules. The mules and their muleteers who accompany them throughout the trek are hired locally and we have signed agreements to ensure mule welfare and good practice which our guides and crew are responsible for enforcing.

Any rubbish from the group’s food such as tins and glass is brought back to Marrakech for recycling, failing on this policy results in the guide and the cook being fined €30 and €20 respectively.

Community

We operate this trip with local muleteers from the Ounilla valley. The trip offers them an extra income and they are paid cash at the end of the trip. Food is also included in the tour package. Guests stay in locally owned village houses and are welcomed by families, this give a deep insight to Berber life and the local community. As small groups we are always welcome to stop in any of the villages along the trail for a cup of mint tea. The cook will purchase local fresh food for the trip in Assaka and Tizgui to spread the benefit from the operation of the tour as much as possible. Visitors are also encouraged to buy genuine, locally made handicrafts at the end of the tour in Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou to support small businesses rather than buying souvenirs in Marrakech.
