I am Yahya
My name is Yahya Bamhmed. I am born in 1989 and come from a family of nomads. I was born in the desert and lived a nomadic life with my family until I was 7. Then we moved to M’hamid El Ghizlane, a small village community on the edge of the endless desert so that I could attend school. Most of the inhabitants of M’Hamid are descendants of Nomads, therefore the nomadic tradition is vividly alive in the village.
Footsteps of my family
I’m not in the desert on a daily basis, but I try to spend as much time there as possible. I’m working in tourism since 2004 and have extensive experience in organizing different kind of tours in the desert – from one day camel trips to multiple day trekking adventures. My aim is not only to preserve and present the natural and cultural heritage of south-west Morocco, but to follow the footsteps of my family, who the led huge caravans through the desert.
