The Beduoin Campsite is a 90 minute camel ride from the main hotel
For a camp it is clean and comfortable
There is a toilet and a washbasin, but no water!
Good dinner and breakfast
Absolute quiet, and the stars are like spotlights in the clear sky
Berber music and songs are the entertainment
The best part is the ride to and from the camp
The main hotel has showers, swimming pool, restaurant, etc.

Which does madam like? A very good choice, this is Berber design, very beautiful.' We like what ...

We went to a part of the Sahara called Erg Chebbi, which is a large sea of sand dunes formed by wind-blown sand. Dorothy and I each got camels and were led by a 65 year old guide named Mohammad. The camel is an incredibly interesting, albeit awkward creature. Everything about them, from their flexible long necks, how they sway when ...
... Fortunately we spotted the camp and headed straight for safety within its walls....no wonder they wall the camps - it is to keep the touts out! There is no doubt that Merzouga is touristy, but there is also no escaping the fact that once inside the camp, Le Petit Prince, we were right in the midst of the dunes. Five metres from the van were about twenty or so dromedaries and a sea of dunes....it was breathtaking and in that respect it ...
... beetle would survive the desert heat.
Time to have breakfast. Omelette, juice, lemon couscous, ample mint tea, yogurt and fruit. Anything is possible in the desert!. Sad to leave here but the time had come to pack up and head back to Merzouga then Marrakesh. I leave my signature in the sand and take one last photo. We mount up and head back on the camels. This time it was worse as ...
