As the son of a caravan leader, Ismail Sbai grew up in M’Hamid El Ghizlane, a small village community on the edge of a desert that stretches for ever. As the inhabitants of M’Hamid are all descendants of Nomads, together they possess invaluable knowledge of the desert and the dunes.

In 1999 Ismail Sbai decided to set up his own agency, not only to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of south-west Morocco, but also fueled by his desire to follow in the footsteps of his family, who led long salt caravans through the Sahara desert. Desert Bivouac had arrived.

Word of mouth recommendations ensure numerous tourists come here, all fascinated and won over by the immense desert areas extending beyond M’Hamid El Ghizlane. Are you looking for a new form of adventure that respects nature and the environment? How about trying something really different. If you are keen to make new discoveries and learn more about Nomadic people, at our desert camp you can count on a warm welcome as individual, family or as part of a group.

Desert Bivouac takes you on a fantastic adventure, exploring the desert in authentic style by camel tours or 4x4 circuits, custom-made trips, starting off from a desert village which is equally authentic.

Majestic palm tree groves in the ochre-tinted earth, with sand everywhere – that is what awaits you at M’Hamid, at once the starting point for your adventure or for living your dream…

The desert allows you to come and experience it, but never reveals its secrets ...
