Tea with Berbers
Merzouga
Eastern Morocco

Sit for tea with a Berber family

Written by the wayfaress

The way of life for the Berber people here have remained remarkably unchanged since the Bronze age. Many are nomadic, still periodically moving their family camps through the desert in pursuit of the ever-elusive water supply - a practice that has sustained their ancestry for millenia.

Sit for a warm pot of mint tea with a Berber family, and you'll  get a glimpse of their simple and honest way of desert life. If you’re lucky, you just might be welcomed into a stranger’s home to shelter from a storm, greeted with tea, stories, and almond paste snacks. You may enter empty handed (bringing gifts for the host is encouraged), but you will most certainly be leaving with new friends, a full stomach, and your own stories to tell your friends back home.

Our guide Mohammed, Salem the driver and Brahim our desert friend were very helpful and took care of everything to make this trip special. We had a great experience and great fun. Definitely one to remember!! I can assure you that Best Travel is the best in organizing these tours. Thank You from Chris, Sasha, Jonathan and Melanie from Malta :-)

I just came back from a 9 day tour with Best Travel Morocco, and I am so grateful for the experience. All accommodations were well thought out and planned.

Before adventuring to Morocco, I was concerned about safety, as we were three women traveling together. Signing up with Best Travel Morocco was the right choice for us -I felt safe the whole time, and we got to meet so many amazing Moroccans!

My friend and I did a 15 day tour across Morocco and totally enjoyed the cultural learning experience. Our two guides were very friendly, knowledgeable, gracious, and lots of fun. Highly recommend Best Travel Morocco if you are considering a trip to Morocco. You won't be disappointed!
