During your camel ride, we pause in the magnificent sand dunes to watch a wonderful Sahara sunset and enjoy the magic of the dunes and their profound silence. Continue your camel ride, to arrive at the traditional camp where you will enjoy an authentic dinner with Berber music (desert drums beside a campfire), enjoying an amazing sky full of stars. Overnight stay in desert camp. An immersive experience! Spending time in this evocative landscape, getting back to nature, spending time with locals and getting to know their way of life. This is a night to remember!
