The camel trekking in the region of Taghbalte does not involve any particular physical effort. It offers a great variety of desert landscapes (rocky desert, oases and dunes) and unforgettable discoveries ( fossils, rock engravings, camel-riding and encountering Berber tribes of the region).

It is an ideal tour for a first approach of the desert in family or with friends.
