We're spending a night in the white desert in a tent. I'm afraid of the bugs. Any advice? If you 've done this - did you see any?

I spent a night in the Sahara in Morocco near Algeria. I didn't see any bugs (though a good shake out of your boots is wise!). I saw a toad near the water cooler though... that blew my mind by in an Animal Adaptations course I took the following semester I learned they live there!

You should just check with your guides at the beginning, but I am sure it is safe and tolerable if they bring tourists there often!
