We planned to stay one night here and 6 days later wept on having to leave. The garden is in pole position for the dunes. End of the piste - the expanse of small dawn-watching dunes opens right behind of the tents and the most majestic of the high sunset-watch dunes are just a stroll (or dromedary plod) away. And it truly is a garden - palm trees, vegetable plots and hundreds of little birds. The tents are very comfortable. The food is delicious. The staff are welcoming, helpful and also great fun. (And natty turban/jellaba wearers) Evenings are spent round the fire with the nattily dressed waiters being joined by some of the local camel drivers, guides and rock sellers for drum, cymbal and voice jam sessions, dancing and joking. Brahim presiding over everything and making sure everyone is happy. And we certainly were. We'll be back, life in the desert is idyllic in the Sahara Garden.
