We stayed one night at Dar Sidi Bounou before Said took us on a overnight desert trip in a 4x4. I've rarely experienced such a wonderful place! It is so welcoming, enchanting and just perfect that you really don't ever want to leave again. Nancy and Daoud helped us with getting some ideas how to make the most of your time in this area and arranged our desert trip. Said was the best guide I could imagine, he really took care of everything you can imagine and made the whole trip an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend spending some time (as much as you actually can) in the Dar Sidi Bounou and enjoy their fabulous food and company!
Thank you Nancy, Daoud, Said, and the rest of the Dar Sidi Bounou family, you guys are amazing!
