M'Hamid is a small village in Zagora region of Morocco, 98 km away from Zagora, and is one of the two places in Morocco where Sahara begins (another is Merzouga). It is an approximate 7-8 hours by car from Marrakech and 5 hours from Ourzazate. M'Hamid is next to the last major oasis one encounters on the way south into the greater Sahara. The area was historically important as the site (Sidi Khalil) where trade caravans gathered (some as large as 5,000 camels) before setting off to Timbuktu and other destinations. M'Hamid is also known as Bounou, once a thriving village made out of a mix of local Ait Atta berbers, Local drawa, and local Hassani tribes.
