The western Sahara occupies the south of Morocco. It is a land of huge expanses of sand dunes that support very few human inhabitants. People who live here are called Sahrawis. Sahrawis belong to tribes of Berber-Arab nomadic Bedouin culture. However, the Sahara will surprise you by its rich fauna. Despite its desolate and lifeless appearance, it is a home to surprisingly wide range of birds and animals.

Most Saharan animals prefer to stay away from humans, so most probably you will see only birds. Saharan birds include houbara bustards, desert sparrows, and larks. The Sahara is also a home of eagles, falcons, and hawks as its wide range of small animals attracts these predator birds.
