Erg Chebbi | Camel trekking excursion

Beautiful Days In The Desert:

Day drawns crisp and cool and today is when you explore the Hamada or rock desert on camel back. The swaying motion could remind you of the movement of a ship on the ocean. After a time you get used to it and eventually arrive at the Screaming Dunes known locally as erg Ezzahar. The sunset is a veritable feast for the eyes and another more solid tagine dinner awaits, prepared by your guides. On the way you get excellent information about this place from Aissam. You will be glad to stretch out and rest your aching bones so thoroughly shaken up by being on camelback for such a long time.

Sunsets and camping in the dunes

The next day takes you further into the desert to Ldhibate in Erg Smar, a scene that could be straight out of a science fiction movie. You know what it feels like to be in the vastness of the desert with nothing but dunes for miles. Were it not for expert guides it would be easy to get lost. Watch the sunset. It is a truly magnificent sight and a reward for your endurance. A hearty meal and stretching out under a canopy of stars is the perfect way to end the day.

All good things come to an end with the promise of more

The last day takes you to Bougarn which is dune country. The undulating almost red-brown sand dunes present a sight that is bound to leave you speechless. It is just too stunning for words. Just sit on a dune and watch the sun sink below the horizon casting interesting shadows across the dunes and then the sky turns crimson gold, a heavenly experience to cherish.  The next day will be relatively uneventful in comparison as you take a side trip to Lbour and retrace your steps to M’Hamid. The desert camel excursion is more than just a ride into the desert; it could be a journey of self discovery too provided you join the right camel tour organizer like SaharaBliss.
