... at around eleven. In the morning, 6am, we were back on our steeds and bobbing up and down back to the camp. Their necks are so weird; they drop away in front of you in this long arc which rises up some distance in front with this cute little head and watchful eyes! They also stink from the back and at the front they make strange gurgling sounds like when the last bit of water drops down the plughole.

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.
