Day 1: Mhamid– Oued Naam
Camel ride and desert camp: This trip explores from up close the wonders of the desert. We start our tour with a camel ride heading towards the big dunes of Erg Chegaga. After riding for about 3 hours we stop for lunch under the shadow of a tree, enjoy tea and relax. We then continue for another 3 hours, partly riding and partly trekking, until we reach a dry river (Oued Naam), where we will set up our camp, have dinner and spend the night in a tent or, if you prefer, under the starlit sky.
Day 2: Oued Naam – Lotide
The next morning our trip across the desert continues. We will cross a large part of the desert for about 3 hours, before stopping for lunch. After our meal, we continue our exploration and enjoy the fabulous desert landscape. After another about 3 hours ride, we will set up our camp among the wonderful dunes of Lotide. Here we will have dinner and spend the night under the starlit sky or in tents.
Day 3: Lotide – Erg Chegaga
We will enjoy the sunrise and morning breakfast before riding on towards the big dunes of Erg Chegaga. Lunch and a cup of tea are offered in the Sacred Oasis before we reach the dunes. In this oasis you will see palm trees and a permanent water source, used by nomads for their family and their herds.
After riding for 15 km we arrive to the big Erg Chegaga dunes, which reach a height of 300 m and a span of 40 km. Here you can revel in the sunset and experience an athmosphere of calmness and tranquility. Local artists will be liven up your dinner, and you will spend the night in one of the Berber tents of our desert camp.
