The desert and the act of moving through it, is a wonderful experience for cleaning the mind of all the daily thoughts and worries. The desert and it’s dunes stretch for miles and miles. Life settles into a timeless routine of local tea and fresh bread, walking, a lunch stop for fresh salad and a siesta. Then a few more miles before the evening meal, a roaring fire, music, singing and a night under the stars as you have never seen before.

We move at the same gentle, effortless pace as our camel train, either riding the African camels (dromedaries) or enjoying the hot sand under our bare feet. Our guides learned how to live with this beautiful yet savage area thousands of years ago and are completely at one with the endless sands of the Sahara. In this place your profound desires are launched and your dream fantasies come to life. Since ancient times, Sahara has been deep in our thoughts. In the dreams of all human beings. Mysticism and exotic blend into a unique form of Nature: The dunes of Merzouga are welcoming you.
