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.

It was a scene from Dickens, with mounds of soggy bluish fleeces, rickety wooden ladders leading to pallets on shelves, puddles of green water..a chalky-blue patina stained every surface.

Through a doorway a small school, the children chanting verses from the Koran, ...
... One can see how this has helped morocco become a backpacker haven. In the evening, we ventured out into the Saharan desert on our camel tour. 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 ...
... where the powder room was. David, Devron and I just laughed and said "pick a sand dune with your name on it". Her bubbly personality changed quickly when she realized we were not joking. She confessed she had only ever used a toilet. Well the audible commentary from the dune she choose was hilarious. Her friend went to help her and she could not work out how to squat and decided to take her ...
