4 Days / 3 Nights
Meet at the El Faouar Hotel in the late morning. Once the dromedaries are loaded, we begin our camel trekinto the beautiful Sahara Desert. We’ll stop for lunch near some tamaris trees (date trees) and then later camp will be set up amongst the large dunes at Mergeb Tergui. Dinner will be our first meal under the stars and the night will be spent in nomadic tents.
Today will be your first full day to enjoy the peaceful quiet of the Sahara. Rest your mind and thoughts as you walk along drinking in the beauty of the vast desert dunes. There is no rush, but just the nonchalant pace of the dromedaries stopping here or there to munch on some desert weeds. Which precise path should we take? Never mind the exact route, the desert is ours to enjoy. Our guide will find a nice place to have lunch under the shade of a tree and then we continue on to the area of Ah’chichina to find a pleasant place to camp for the night.
Beautiful desert dunes await you for the day. Discover the serentity of life in the desert as you continue to explore and take in its vast beauty. This evening’s dinner is an opportunity for team building. After enjoying the sunset with its incredible mauve hues that fire up the Eastern sky, you can help prepare for the evening activities by picking up wood, setting up the tents, and preparing the meal. Dinner will take place around the campfire. The evening carries on with camel drivers’ songs accompanied by music with drums and the traditional bendir instrument. Camp will be set up at Wahed el Mechba.
Rise and enjoy our last breakfast together, then hike to Bir R’med where we will rendez-vous with our 4×4. Our departure and return trip will be in the early afternoon on the trail towards El Faouar.
