At the end of the drive in Merzouga, you switch from car to dromedary. In caravan you enter the heart of the Erg Chebbi dunes and enjoy an unforgettable sunset. We spend the night at the desert camp in traditional desert nomad Haim’s, “homes made with dromedary wool”. And if you want, you can sleep under the spectacular sky of stars.
We end the day with a cup of traditional tea (Moroccan or Berber Whisky), a delicious Berber tajine and with local Berber nomad musicians playing traditional drums.
