1 NIGHT CAMEL TREK
A camel trek in the Sahara Desert will offer you an insight intothe lifestyle of the camel caravans that used to travel on centuries-old routes seeking cool oases, springs of water and dealing in salt and spices. The salt caravans travelled from near Marrakech all the way to Timbuktu and came back with gold, silver, cloth, spices and slaves. The journey was often perilous and many did not return. Some of the older nomads can tell stories from their own lifetime of the treks across the dunes to distant lands and back.
Perhaps being in the heart of the dunes under a nomadic tent is the best way to appreciate the tranquility of the desert and take a moment to enjoy the lifestyle of the nomads of this region.
SUNRISE CAMEL TREK
This is the tour you must select if you want the see the beautiful sunrise over the dune of Hassi Labied. The Sunrise starts around 5am and takes 30 minutes to reach the highest dune of Hassi Labied. We visit the garden on the way back. For this tour you don't need to set the alarm clock. Enjoy your night and we will come around for a wake-up call.
SUNSET CAMEL TREK
The Sunset tour begins around 5:30pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg chebbi on top a camel. Then, we will leave the camels in about 80 meters to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view they must climb to the top, which will take another 10 minutes. If you prefer not to hike up the highest dunes, the area around the camel "parking" is perfect to watch the sunset. After having enjoying the view, we travel back to the village. This tour includes a stop at the garden where you will have a short explanation about the canal system.
