Guide, camel herder, "Camel owner plan" project coordinator
A Tuareg born in Djanet in 1978 and the son of a large family spread out across Mali, Lybia and Algeria, Hamani has been a camel scout and guide for tourists during the high season for the past ten years and whiles away the low season at a café. He is authorized by the Tassili National Park and derives his extensive desert knowledge from his father, who still practices nomadic herding in northern Mali. He is an excellent guide, familiar with all of the region’s camel trails and with an innate sense for camel-care. Having never left the desert, his tourist guide activities have provided him with an opening on our civilization. He is Sahara-Eliki’s sheperd and inspiration, as well as the subject of many documentaries.
