You will be neatly picked up at your accommodation. Then you drive through Merzouga through the sand dunes of the Sahara. Then you stop for tea with a Berber family. Then you drive through the other part of the Sahara, which was also beautiful, and stop at a mine where minerals are mined. Lunch was top notch, especially the berber pizza was delicious. You will also stop at a Senegalese (of origin) enclave nearby, where traditional music is played. Unfortunately there was no water in the lake (early March) so there was not much to see there. Our guide was a local boy, very friendly and knew a lot about the area and the culture.

Very good experience! We went with my husband and my 1-year-old daughter (nervous because we didn't know what would happen to her being so small, thinking that she would be cold or something) and nothing! It was amazing ! I took a porterage backpack so that I was safer on the camel and it was the best! We were the only ones in the camp, but they still set fires, played instruments and sang for us! All very friendly. The tent was very spacious and even had air conditioning (we couldn't find the remote control but we still didn't get cold). If you go to Merzouga totally recommended!

we set off with the camels at 5:00 p.m. our guide was great. the camp is right next to the parking lot so not in the desert itself. unfortunately the food was nothing special... we ate much better on our trip. Unfortunately, sandboarding was not offered to us, although it was included in the price

Splendid welcome, super-equipped tent, very kind staff. Tour his magical camels. Super recommended

There is no aircondition, so during winter is freezing. The camp is wonderfull
