Into the Desert

A travel blog entry by johnsjourneys

The journey from Dades Valley to the sand dunes near Merzouga takes about 6 hours, including a stop for lunch and an excursion through the palmery at Erfoud. The palmery excursion bypasses the centre of Erfoud and instead passes through a succession of villages, many with ruined Kasbahs and crumbling houses that have lived off the date palms since …

Morning Sand

... space in the sand to write. There's nothing but sand to write in here.

Last night we had personal performances by a ganoua tribe. Their music made from the clinking and beating of shackles, slaves feet and strong hearts resounded through me. Shaking me with raw emotion as their drums led my heart on a race through time and space. I got to play them my music. It was one of my favorite days of life because I got to give back ...

Sahara Trip - 3 days, 2 nights

... made me wonder why you wouldn't just bus it out here yourself for 1/8 of the price and then join up with the groups at the camp. Well, I've experienced and let me say riding a camel in the Eastern Sahara of Morocco is not as cool as you think it is, ok well maybe I never thought it was that awesome to begin with but anyways. So after having done it it's still not that awesome. The only aspect of this trip to the sahara I have enjoyed has being able to witness the change of landscape and ...

... noticed that Ali seemed to be having some issues. At first we just assumed that his arms were in his chair wrong (he's very particular about how he likes his elbows to be placed) but when Gigi tried to fix him, he said that wasn't it. Since he can't really move his arms to point, and none of us knew enough French or Arabic to ask what was wrong, so it took a bit of doing to figure out what was bothering him. Eventually we figured out that his stomach hurt. And then that his throat ...

... like a mountain.

The dunes were directly behind the auberge where we rested for the day, but I could only spend about an hour wandering around before it felt too hot.

Fast forward to the evening - camel safari time! This comes just over a year after I did one in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, India - I had caught heat stroke and E.coli just prior to doing that one, which made for a rather painful experience. Luckily, this wasn't the case (yet). ...

    A Camp in the Desert

    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.
