Day 1: Mhamid – Oued Naam
This camel tour is an eco-tourism sojourn off the beaten track in the dunes of the Sahara. It allows you to experience the simpler and quieter life, customs and tradition of nomadic tribes. The tour starts from Mhamid, the “Gate of the desert” and brings you to the real desert. Ride camels for approximately 10 km over small dunes and enjoy lunch under a Tamarisk tree. In the afternoon, we continue our camel trek to the Oued Naam (dry river), a meeting place for nomads tribes that take water from a local well. Here you will enjoy the dinner and spend the night in nomad tents or under the starlit sky.
Day 2: Oued Naam – Erg Chegaga
After breakfast in this unique and quiet atmosphere, you will have an optional hour of camel ride. Afterwards, depart with 4×4 vehicle towards a different area of the desert until we reach a Sacred Oasis for a lunch break under the shade of palm trees.
After a relaxing nap, we travel to Erg Chegaga, the site of the largest group of sand dunes in the region reaching a height of 300 m and a span of 40 km. Here you’ll enjoy dinner with entertainment and spend the night either under the stars or in nomad tents at a bivouac.
Day 3: Erg Chegaga – Mhamid
Admire an unforgettable sunrise with morning breeze and enjoy breakfast served in a tent or in the open air before we come back with our vehicle to the village of Mhamid, where arrival is expected around 10:30 am.
