Nomad life

While cattle raising takes place inside the ksars, sheep, dromedaries and goats require a constant search for new pastures.

In order to shepherd the herds, a part of the population practices nomad life. They live in tents and carry all their belongings with them.

Due to such a hard life, these shepherds are much stronger, more resistant and braver than the sedentary farmers. For this reason, in ancient times there was a relationship of dependence between the nomad protectors and their counterparts who farmed in the oasis.
