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.

... freshly baked bread! There was so many scenic vistas along the way with the highlight being the Zaz river that creates an oasis between the desolate mountains - see photo of Bella taking a picture of it. This is Morocco's biggest river and biggest oasis. Enjoy spectacular views of the majestic Erg Chebbi sand dunes, which appear to change colour in shades of orange and purple, depending on the time of day. Keep your eyes open for flamingos and fulvous babblers ...
... on our journey. Lansari got a call that the road we were stuck on had been closed just after us. If we hadn't gotten over that hill we would have had to travel back to Fez and been delayed. Timing is everything! Back on the main road and on our way to complete our journey through a 6,000 foot mountain pass heading to the vast Sahara Desert where we will spend two days in a tented camp. Of course we will be out of wifi and all communication for at least 3 ...
... old Geoff! It was incredibly peaceful the further into the desert we got and although we were pretty uncomfortable (especially Jack who didn't stop *****ing!) it was a really lovely experience. We were about an hour and a half away from our base for the night when the sun set, we stopped and enjoyed the beautiful changing colours and watched the sun disappear into the sand dunes. Immediately after the huge illuminous moon rose and lit up the sky. It was a really ...
... doing that whole, it's terrible, we both know but we won't make a thing of it. I look over to Jed as I'm just pushing my bones around trying to find the meat and he's polishing off his last mouthful. Later in the car he tells me how great the Lunch was. "Are you being sarcastic? Did we eat at different restaurants?" "No, it really was great, the meat was so tender and no fat" "Right, so I just got all the fat!" "I'm glad I know now and not then, I wouldn't have wanted to share it!" ...
... young fox friends came. There was even had a rudimentary Internet Cafe. Mohamed turned off the village road, plunging our car into the gravel desert. We were now totally off road, with no trails or pistes to follow. The sun was right overhead, making it impossible - at least for us - to gain our bearings as to what direction in which we were travelling. Thank god for Mohamed's inbuilt sat nav, I thought. Slight groans and moans ...
