Karaoui Salem

Owner & Expert Guide


I was born in the south of Morocco exactly in the Sahara ,from a Berber nomadic family that was moving around the Sahara desert with its herds of sheep and camels .but the dry weather and less rain made them to immigrate to the nearest city where i began my school to seek knowledge and see the world from other side.
My love for foreign cultures and language made me to choose the tourism sector by working in hotels during the summer and school holidays.in the age of 15 years old start to accompany the tourists and guide them during their visit giving them information and let them feel the real life of the Sahara like a local no like a tourist.
I was attracted by many different foreign cultures especially Japanese one .so during my working life I got a chance to move to Japan-Tokyo- That was really totally different from where I come from .first was hard to integrate with it but never think to give up because life a chance and if you lose you will always give up at any chance that comes in your life .my stay in Japan teach me many things that changes my life into good way .
Languages: Berber (mother language), Arabic, French, English, Spanish, Italian & Japanese.

Hello, My Recommendation Tours

What my clients said

A truly magical experience

The absolute highlight of our week in Morocco was the three day trip across this beautiful country, spending a night in the Sahara desert. Our guide and driver, Salam, was the perfect companion. He is everything you could hope for. As well as having a deep knowledge of his country and its people, he went out of his way to show us amazing places off the beaten track, including an awe-inspiring salt river in the High Atlas Mountains. A really generous, good humoured and warmhearted person – nothing was too much trouble for him. We felt that we had made a real friend.

Salam and Moroccan Family are the perfect answer to any trip in this fascinating country. I can’t wait to go back – and would most definitely book with them again, and again ….!

The experience of a lifetime!

Salem, the owner of Moroccan family, is a complete profesional. He took us from Marrakesh to the desert and on to fes. We travelled very comfortably in his 4×4 SUV, he is an excellent driver and we felt completely safe. If you want to travel in Morroco, Salem and Moroccan family are your best option. He is 100% trustworthy, he is very knowledgable about his country and he goes above and beyond to make sure that you are having the time of your life! I can honestly say that Salem is one of the most special people I have ever met. My wife, mother and I were so lucky in meeting him, he has become a real friend. Thank you for so many magical memories! We can’t wait to return!
