“Caravan Dakhla is the second launch for Habitas in Morocco, and follows swiftly on from the opening of Caravan Agafay,” said Oliver Ripley, Co-Founder & CEO of Habitas. “Dakhla is one of the top kitesurfing locations in the world and ideal for beginners and advanced. Each location taps into our core values of offering unique and transformative travel experiences, with Dakhla offering something entirely different due to its connection with the lagoon. We’re planning to launch additional homes in Morocco in equally diverse settings.”

Targeted towards ‘experience seekers with a pioneering spirit for community and adventure’, each of the Caravan Homes aims to provide guests adventure without boundaries, connecting like-minded explorers on a non-traditional, unforgettable journey. Additionally, for every guest that stays at Caravan Dakhla, Habitas will donate to its RISE Fund – the brand’s impact initiative to support local communities, create jobs and give back to local environmental and social causes.
