Upon arrival at Erg Chebbi, meet your camel caravan where the road ends and ride your camel and drive over the color changing sand dunes to watch one of the most dramatic sunsets ever. Drive back to your Sahara desert camp where a well deserved Moroccan dinner will be served under the stars next to the camp fire while entertained by the local nomads playing their drums, and the near by dunes expose a great display od shooting stars and crystal clear constellations.
