In 2007, the Moroccodesertravel company was founded by its owner Ali Oukhouya who is a native Moroccan from the desert Sahara where he spent his childhood living a nomadic life with his extended family. The lack of water, desertification and other cruel circumstances led his father to sell his share of the herds and move to the town of Merzouga where Ali was schooled. In 2005 he graduated at the University of Moulay Ismail in Meknes where he got his BA in English for Tourism and Heritage. Since then, he handled desert tours and cultural tours for large and well-known companies touring around Morocco.
After creating a wide network in his long-term tourism experience travelling everywhere in his country that he knows as the back of his hand, Ali launched his own business with the aim to offer every visitor to Morocco a dream tour in a warm welcoming atmosphere and comfortable travel conditions.
Ali speaks English, French, Spanish, Arabic and his mother tongue Berber. With many years of experience and with great pleasure, he can facilitate your travel conditions; arrange your accommodation and transportation.
