You have to see and hear and feel Darsidibounou.
Sights and sounds and great hospitality.
You can wander alone or you can join in the dance and music till the early hours.
Berber tents and rugs take you to another world with handsome young men in turbans and gowns to help at every turn. One moment they are playing the drums and dancing and the next serving delicious food. You will have an amazing welcome from Nancy and all who take care of you. Colour is everywhere and time disappears. Apart from the modern conveniences this is how life was probably lived here 500 years ago. This is a happy place filled with happy people no matter if they are guests or staff. Magnificent date palms move gently and patient camels are there to take you for a day or more into the mysterious sands. I loved the cats and dogs that come and go as they please, either playing together or keeping company with the humans.
This place is unique and i cant recommend it too highly if you want an authentic experience of this part of the world. I am coming back again and again.
