Habib Aribi is a Bédouin born in a Nomad tribe in Taouss, near the great sand dunes of Merzouga. He spent his childhood in the desert, and when he was ten, the dryness of the lands led him and his family to settle down in the Erfoud area, a place renowned for growing dates. After his school years, he acquired experience in tourism throughout various sorts of jobs, camel-owner, assistant, then head of a riad in Marrakech. He has been a tour guide on trails and roads in both desert and mountains for over six years.
His patience and trustworthiness, along with his sense of humour have won over those who have traveled with him. He speaks Arabic and Darija (Moroccan Arabic), excellent French, Spanish, English, Hassaniya (Moroccan bedouins' language) and some Berber dialect.
