About Us

Sahara Footprints is a travel agency that organizes all kind of desert tours and desert trekkings in Morocco. The original home of all members of our team is M'hamid el Ghizlane (Province de Zagora), the last village before the vast Sahara. The desert is our home, which we love and take care of. A fair and respectful treatment of both nature and dromedaries is really important to us. We look forward to helping you plan and organize any kind of travel to magical desert and to initiate you in the nomads’ way of life and traditions. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, clear nights under the sky full of shining stars, red and orange sand dunes, traditional meals and especially the kindness of people that you will meet are memories that will stay in your heart.
