Our recommended Tour: 3 Days to know the best spots in Nkob and around the Regions
Day 1: the riches of Nkob.
The Plan: discover Nkob
Did you know Nkob is famous for its 45 Kasbahs, top quality henna and organic dates and almonds? Enjoy this full day with our guide to discover the village of the 45 kasbash!
Nkob was an important point in the ancient Caravan trade route that linked the distant Timbuktu in Mali, across the Sahara desert to the coastal towns of the Mediterranean. This village was so important that it had 45 Kasbahs, a symbol of power for the berber tribes. Long before the Arab invasion in the 7th century CE, Camel caravans crossed the vast Sahara trading the gold, salt and other African riches with the Mediterranean world. These caravans would be as large as 12.000 camels at the peak of their importance. Across these routes, many towns flourished and became cultural centers like the lost city of Sijilmasa, near Rissani and Merzouga, in Morocco. And villages like Nkob were the important stronghold that enabled the Camel Caravans to exist for more than 2000 years until our days.
Among the many palm and almond trees, the delicate small tree of Henna thrives under the hottest and driest temperatures. This native plant has been used for more than 6000 years across the northern Africa to South Asia. Power made from the leaves from our region result in the most sought-out product of Nkob, the prime quality Nkob Henna! But before you reach the gardens of Henna, enjoy the delicious organic dates and almonds!

Day 3: The Birthplace of Ait Atta!
The Plan: Breakfast at the hotel, Transport into the Mountains. Trekking for 4 hours. Transport back to hotel.
Duration: 5 Hours
The Nkob region is home to the Ait Atta tribe, a ancient nomadic tribe that rose to prominence the 17th century until the 1930’s. Jbel Saghrou was the birthplace of the Ait Aita tribe. This region has been inhabited for over 4000 years, and the nomadic Ait Atta took their herds through the Dades Valley to the pastures in the High Atlas. These tribes keep repeating this primordial rhythm from their Winter homes into the green and lust Summer pastures, after the Winter snow from the High Atlas has melted.
During this day, you’ll get a chance to enter into the heart of mountains of Jbel Saghrou, the homeland of the people of Nkob. In the mountains there’s remarkable sense of immensity that mountain and trekking lovers know well, mixed with the ancestral history of the Berber people.
