Mostafa Ait Bounacer
My name is Mustapha Bounacer. Born and raised, I am of Amazigh heritage and I am immensely proud to have our family generation’s roots based in the heart of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco, in the village of Imlil, the hiking gateway to Mount. Toubkal, and just one hour from the bustling city of Marrakech. As I think back to my early childhood growing up in the mountains, I reminisce guests visiting our family home where we would welcome and host their presence during their backpacking expeditions and their travelling excursions providing us with immense opportunities experiencing such gatherings. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have travelled along with my father giving me additional opportunities to explore gaining further experience and memories. From late nights camping in tents in the Atlas Mountains enjoying traditional Amazigh entertainment, to camel riding whilst watching remarkable sunsets and sunrises in the golden dunes of the Sahara Desert, have built everlasting memories.
