Mohamed Ben Brahim is owner and founder of M21477
From the age of seven I have joined may father to trek the Atlas Mountains. I have lived and worked a lifetime in the more remote jagged areas of High Atlas. I know and love the local characters, the people whose lives are steeped in local Berber traditions and folkways.
Due to my optional experience with my father I started to have responsibilities in leading treks in Atlas Mountains since 1995 I was walking, driving and discovering all of Morocco. I have a vast knowledge of the different habitats i.e. mountains, desert, forest and sea…etc. I’m working now as provider for Overseas Expedition School trips Companies especially from Wales.
M21477 operates exclusively in High Atlas. All of the staff have lived or worked in the area, enabling us to combine our experience and contacts to make our treks as interesting and flexible as possible. All treks will include not only hiking and camping, but also opportunities to learn about local Berber life and culture. Most treks will include at least one night staying in a local village, or staying with others on the camps and refuges. Your local guide, cook, muleteer, camel man, driver and porters will do much more than simply to show you the best services; they will share their knowledge and experiences with you as you go along. We try to keep our trekking groups small (2-12 people) to enable closer and more individual contact to guides and locals but also able to organize for large groups..
Our company is a flexible walking company, and we will work with each client or group to arrange a trek which will suit their particular requirements. Some clients already have a specific trek in mind which we are happy to arrange for them, whereas other clients simply have an idea of the type of trek they would like to do, and we are able to help them decide on a trek which will fit in with what they are looking for.
We also have a selection of specially designed walks which our clients can choose from, which will enable them to combine exciting trekking, interacting with local people, and learning about the local culture and the environment.
I own a hostel on way up to Mt Toubkal.
