Each person rides their own Camel and additional Camels are provided to carry your luggage. The Camel trek is usually just prior to sunset, so that you may enjoy the sun setting over the landscape from the top of the Dunes.
Once we arrive at the Desert camp, we are greeted with a cup of delicious hot minty tea and we spend the evening under the stars, on the dunes and beside the warmth of the fireside. We enjoy a locally cooked meal of Tagine and couscous (vegetarians are catered for with vegetable tagine), a drum party and story swapping.
The camp has basic toilet facilities, which us usual for a standard desert camp. Those that wish to can sleep directly under the stars, but there are private Bivouacs for everyone.
The stars in the desert are a great opportunity to see as their are no artificial lights around and you can fully appreciate the glory of the skies above.
After a traditional Berber breakfast, just prior to sunrise, we have a one and a half hour camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and we head back to Merzouga on our Camels.
