Easy going desert site

Sahara feeling at a finger tip. No need to travel 1000s of miles to feel like in the desert. 2 hrs on the dromedary will get you this.

It was such an interesting experience. Well indeed like everything else, this one was also touristic. You go with a tour, stay in tents (but don't look for any luxury in the stay), have mint tea, nice live music played by the locals, they are very nice people btw and cold! Bring your thick jacket with you or anything which... More

Excellent and exciting journey to the Desert Camp. Enough time spent on camel and relaxing time faraway from everything. In real Touareg sleeping tents we experiment a real Night in Desert. I didn't find it very cold but I was there in August. Above us 'Only Sky'... with very good conditions to observe via lactea as I'd never seen it... More

I went with a tour group on camels to an overnight campsite. Yes, it was completely touristy, but I loved it. I have been to the desert in Death Valley, California and it reminded me of there but it's bigger and the colors were more intense. Seeing camels walking around freely in the distance while the heat warmed up the... More

We had a blast in Erg Chebbi. The dunes were of a reddish color and the sand so smooth under our feet. It was fun going up and down the dunes even though some were quite steep, a fun exercise for the whole family. Can't wait to go back!

The erg chebbi sand dunes were incredible. We had a blast just running up and down the dunes, and getting sand everywhere! What a sight. We can't wait to go back!
