1 Night in the Sahara Desert
This trip begins in evening. The camels will be packed with foods, blankets and everything else which we will need. The trek will start right into the Sahara desert, where it is completely secluded. The path we take will lead us to a small Oasis right in the middle of the dunes. This is where we will spend the night.
It will be a magical night where the sky is clear of cover and stars sparkle and shine with intensity. During the first night in the Sahara Desert, there will be a wonderful dinner around a campfire, listen to traditional Berber drums and spend the night in nomad Berber tents.
In the morning, after having breakfast we will take you back to the Hotel (Merzouga).
The Sunset tour begins around 5:30pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi riding on top a camel. Then, we will leave the camels, travel by foot about 80 meters to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view they must climb to the top, it will take them another 10 minutes. If you prefer not to hike up the highest dunes, the area around the camel “parking” is perfect to watch the sunset. After having enjoyed this short time we travel back to the village before dark. This tour includes a stop at the garden where you will have a short explanation about the canal system of the desert.
Sunrise Tour :
The Sunrise Tour starts early and takes 35 minutes to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. This tour includes a visit to the garden on the way back. For this tour you don’t need to set the alarm clock. Enjoy your night and we will come around for a wake-up call.
