I’m just back from a fantastic trip to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco,set up by an off-beat travel company called Natural High. Me and the owner of the company, Alex Edwards, tagged along with a family of Berber nomads as they made the spring migration from the Sahara up to the summer pastures in the High Atlas. We walked 10-16 miles a day with their camels, mules, flocks of sheep and goats, and a stalwart donkey. In six days we never saw a road, a village, a building, or a tyre track, and it was very much an Old Testament feel. Nomads in robes with their flocks; rugged arid mountains. I’ll write about it at length for the Telegraph travel special next Feb. And if anyone is looking for visceral wilderness travel experiences in Africa, these guys are cool…
