This ocean of pure Saharan sand, provides the back drop to an authentic Arabian adventure which involes a camel trek across the dunes to a secluded oasis, where an authentic spicy Berber tagine is being prepared over an open fire by Bedouin tents.
We'll have a chance to explore this magnificent desert landscape -
if you're feeling energetic you can climb the dunes
for sunrise or sunset to watch the light and colour of
the sands change. As the stars come out you can often
hear the rhythmic beat of tribal drumming carried on
the still night.
Camel trekking may not be the most comfortable means of travelling for some, but it is undoubtedly a 'must' for every traveller as a way to experience the mode of transport of the Berber nomads of the Sahara.
There are a number of possibilities of camel treks (méharrées), offered by Camel Trekking, starting from a day's outing to a two-week
expedition. The best time of year for camel trekking
is September to February.
Camel Trekking is run and organized by Omar. He can help organize your trip to the desert and answer any question or concerns you might have. Click here to find out more about Omar.
