Transhumance – Ait Atta Nomads

Camels travel thou varied landscapes.

Every spring, nomadic Saghro in the South East of Morocco, leave their pastures and migrate with their herds of goats, sheep and camels, their entire family and belongings. These caravans set off to cross the Dades valley and climb on the southern slopes of the Atlas mountains over 3,000m for the summer months. They will finally reach the Izourar lake and its highlands and pastures. Some set up their tents and make camps there; while others will continue to the north side of the Atlas and set up their temporary camps for summer.
The Ait Atta are a group of the Amazigh population of Morocco, originating from the Sahara. Jbel Saghro is their original fief or homeland. They spread out around in the valleys of Tafilalet, Ziz, Draa and Dades living a transient nomadic existence.
