Camel trekking in Merzouga (1 Night)

This trip begins in evening, we organize the camel ride for the night in desert from our guesthouse near the sand dunes. The camels will be packed with foods, blankets and everything else which we will need. The trek will start with a 1 hour and 30 minute ride by camel into the desert. We will spend the night in an equipped camp with music played on traditional Berber drums in the middle of the Sahara. When we arrive at the camp we walk to the high dunes to see the sunset. This is a great opportunity to take lovely pictures of the sunset and sunrise. It will be a magical night, when the sky is clear of cover and stars sparkle and shine with intensity. During this evening, there will be a wonderful dinner around a campfire, listen to the drums and we will spend the night in nomad tents. In the morning we will ride the camels back to Merzouga , you’ll have the breakfast and shower in the guesthouse in Merzouga.
