Mount Toubkal Team
We will help you to fulfill Your Vision
A leader should be fun to travel with and ready to share with you their enthusiasm for adventure travel and their knowledge of the area. Alongside the group leader, there will be a local support crew, which could be just a driver, or a complete team of guides, drivers, porters, mule-herders and cooks. The hard work of our support crews, along with the fascinating insight they can offer into their own culture, is integral to providing you with the very best holiday experience. Here is just a small selection of our current leaders! Get to know us, meet the team behind Mount Toubal Adventures.
Mohamed Ait Taleb is the Managing Director of Mount Toubkal. He is a Berber and with that comes a good, honest, trustworthy friend. He is a certified Royal Moroccan Federation of Ski and Mountain with a great deal of experience trekking in the High Atlas mountain range and the desert for the past 18 years. Mohamed was born and grew up in the tiny village of Armed in the shadow of Mount Toubkal.
He has reached the summit more than 100 times, in the summer and winter, both trekking and skiing. Mohamed’s knowledge includes the Moroccan mountains of Toubkal, M’goun, Siroua, Saghro and the Sahara Desert. His priorities are the safety of his travellers and the beautiful area he lives in.
Mohamed is ecologically aware and strives to preserve his local environment, after all, he lives in it, it’s his home.
Mohamed has a good command of English, is a good listener and he loves to share his Berber knowledge because in his own words “understanding people is an important skill in the wilds of the High Atlas”.
Aicha has worked for Mount Toubkal since April 2004. She loves having the opportunity after work to go for a walk, bike ride or a quick beer! She is a keen traveller, and her most recent getaways include the summit of M’goun, Toubkal, jebel kelti.
“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”
