The festival of the Nomads, held in each March in M'Hamid (in the dunes, 90km south of Zagora), celebrates the life and traditions of the wandering tribes.
The festival includes music & dance, 'night of story telling', camel races, craft workers & stalls, cooking courses, jewellery stalls and more. All are focused on showing the history of the nomads that live on in the Sahara, and to allow you to meet the variety of ancient cultures. It is still time to learn from the Moors, the Tuaregs or the Bedouins how to cross a desert by camel. The Berber ones of the High Atlas or the nomads of the Sahara show how to live their culture with a disconcerting naturalness.
There is still time to discover these cultures but one should not delay too long!
