Hi

You can enjoy a desert camp all around the year. It is never too cold. The temperatures at night in February might be around 8-10 degrees. There will be no heating no, but enough blankets to keep you warm. Bring some warm cloths with you and you'll be fine.

Enjoy your desert trip!

Good advice, though to set expectations, it can get colder than that. I experienced 1°C and was without a tent so really cold.

It was definitely colder than that, probably only just above freezing, when we had our night in the desert at the beginning of December (the next day there was a lot of snow in the mountains and the Tichka Pass was closed). It was a very basic camp with no facilities at all (pretty much what we'd expected and hoped for). Only my nose got cold though - there were so many blankets that we could hardly move, and I wore a fleecy hat in bed. We were really toasty warm!

Earlier in the evening our desert guide went to find some firewood and we sat by the fire for a couple of hours, chatting and relaxing. It was a lovely, peaceful time, particularly as there was only the two of us and our guide in the camp.

Oh, and as well as a fleecy hat I also wore thermals and thick socks - dress appropriately with lots of layers and you'll be fine!
