Please note that you will be accompanied by guides who know the desert very well. They have grown in the Sahara desert and are usually from Nomad families who recently settled. They are compassionate and will give you a magical experience of discovering the Sahara desert. You will have the option to take the hike either on foot or on the back of a camel, with the possibility to alternate as you wish. Breaks are scheduled at regular intervals during the hike. You walk (ride camel) 4 to 5 hours a day.

Every night, your guides set up bivouac (Nomad tent) for you. The chef prepares a delicious tagine or couscous, while you sip a well-deserved mint tea. After dinner, if you wish, there is an entertainment around fire with a Berber music. It is always a moment to treasure. The next morning, wake up to a splendid sunrise that lights up over the sand dunes just like in a dream. Breakfast will be served bread, butter, jam, cheese and tea. The lunch picnic is generally a salad, decorated with tuna, sardines or other, accompanied by Moroccan bread and followed by a dessert.
