We will move through Tinjdad, Jorf and Erfoud where we will sense the beginning of Tafilalet’s Saharan oasis. And then proceed to Merzouga, and then we go to ride the camels in the erg Chebbi dunes after refreshing in Merzouga. It’s a wonderful experience to imagine riding a camel in erg chebbi where the desert’s quietness is the dominant, reaching the camp, leaving the camels and walking to a high sand dune for sandboarding and watching the sunset. Dinner is going to be served with Berber drum music under a Berber tent.
