Jamal is a very helpful and professional operator. He gave us a lot of help when choosing and arranging the walk. Our guide Mustafa and mule driver / cook Ibrahim were very friendly and helpful thoughout.
Be warned that Imlil is at 1700m above sea level and the walk goes over passes at 2400m. This was high enough for one of our party to be affected by the altitude, and she arrived with a tummy bug (which I want to stress was therefore not the fault of Ibrahim). The effects were that she had trouble catching her breath when ascending, trouble sleeping, and was violently sick.
The accommodation is basic, as you would expect at these prices in a mountain area, but that did not help when faced with frequent visits to the toilet all night. All the staff were very kind and helpful, doing all they could to make her feel better and less embarrassed by the situation. Mustafa changed the itinerary entirely to suit, including spending the second night in a different and better appointed hostel.
So our experience was not a wholly good one. But none of the problems were in any way the fault of the organisers or staff. I, who was not sick, brought away some lovely memories of the walk in the mountains.
If you have walked at these altitudes before without problem then this is highly recommended. If you have not, then it might be best to test it out with a one day walk!
