  • My last few days spent visiting Berber villages as been fab. 
Deep in the High Atlas Mountains these Berber families defy the harsh environment in one of the most hard to reach parts of the African continent and continue to remain loyal to their ancestors by living a traditional nomadic way of life. 
They rely on cattle and agriculture as their main sources of income and use mountain donkeys as there mode of transport between the villages. •
👉Swipe right to see the argan oil production process, traditional flour milling and inside the Berber house. •
The house as no electric or running water, the water used comes directly from the nearby stream. 🏞💓🐔🐄🍞

  • Sunrise photo from Mt Toubkal. 
Finalmente oggi sono riuscita a ripassare tutte le foto fatte in Marocco e devo dire che nonostante il freddo e la batteria congelata, quelle poche foto che sono riuscita a fare sulla cima non mi dispiacciono. I colori sono reali e la foto non è stata ritoccata se non per alzare un po’ la luminosità. Alcune cose non si possono descrivere neanche con una bella foto, anche se questa rende l’idea. 🇦🇺 Today I was editing my photos from Morocco and even though my camera battery was frozen I managed to take a few shots from the top of Mt Toubkal that I am very happy with. This photo has no color adjustments, it has only been slightly brightened. Some things in life you cant describe, not even with amazing photos, but I have to say, this one comes close enough.

  • If you want to get to know a bit more about life in a #Berber family home then this is the place for you. Lahcen Igdem and his family live in the heart of the small village of zaouit in the High #AtlasMountains. Their front door looks unremarkable but as you step inside, your feet walk across home made rugs and you find yourself in a cosy salon. Lahcen speaks excellent English and showed us how to make mint tea in the #traditional #moroccan way - no tea bags involved! Our room was very comfortable with air conditioning and an en suite bathroom. Every morning we ate #breakfast on the sunny terrace with stunning views of the surrounding #mountains. The breakfast was the best I have had in #Morocco with freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade yoghourt and pancakes and eggs from the hens downstairs. During our stay we met Lahcen's family and learnt more about life in the Atlas mountains. Lahcen was happy to answer all my questions (I am very nosy!) and organised opportunities for me to see more of their everyday life. I learned to make bread the Moroccan way, though stopped short of putting my hand in the tandoor style oven to press the dough onto the baking hot oven walls! I watched the women making #couscous from scratch and also tried my hand at rug making on a traditional loom. We ate evening #meals here too with tasty salads or soup followed by couscous or tagines. My husband is a vegetarian and enjoyed vegetarian options each evening too.

The setting is perfect for #walking - both relaxed and serious. The family's mule is also available for #hiking #trips. We spent time walking around the villages and also hired mountain #bikes. Lahcen also helped us to arrange a fantastic guide, Abdul, to guide us on a 2 day hike up Mount #Toubkal. He arranged sleeping bags and crampons with no fuss. I can honestly say it is the hardest hike I have ever done but I am so pleased to have reached the summit.

What more can I say.....this is a #magical place and to stay in a family home is a very special experience. There are not many rooms so book early to avoid disappointment, we will certainly be coming back.

  • Wish I could stay here and build myself a house beside the lake. It's got everything: cycling, running, swimming, sunning... #moroccobikepacking

  • In 2012, Yasmina Benabderrahmane took a trip back to her home country of Morocco, having been away for over 14 years. She travelled to the rural Atlas mountains during the Eid celebrations to visit her grandmother. She travelled to the Bouregreg Valley, a place of intense industrial development, where, “day by day the landscape was assaulted”. Everywhere she went, she had an intense sense of Morocco’s physical landscape: it’s mineral being, with dripping stones, earth, it’s mountains and valleys.⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
Over the coming days we’re looking at the alluring subject of travel, journeys, and the effect these have on different artists’ work.⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
Images: 'La Bête, a modern tale by Yasmina Benabderrahmane', forthcoming this February. Preorder through our website now. This accompanies a solo exhibition of work at LE BAL, Paris, until 12 April.⁠⠀
