Profile – Hassan

Hassan owns the Auberge Chez Hassan 4km north of Zagora and appears to own the family safari business as well. He’s a natural salesman and quickly talked us into paying 50% too much for our camel trek and too much for our meals at the hotel.

He has a large personality and a turban to match. He was playing the guitar when we arrived at the hotel and kept us entertained with his drumming friends for a few hours until dinner was finally ready.

The family has put a lot of work into creating this camping / auberge with about 5 rooms and one ‘tent’ (a clay walled room with a cloth roof) and he seems determined to create a cosy, friendly atmosphere. This is only spoilt by the late meals and pushy sales pitch. Once he has your money, or knows he won’t get it, his interest wanes.
