A lovely campsite right on the edge of the dunes with very clean sanitary facilities and a great restaurant serving excellent food at a reasonable price. From here, you can ride a dromedary to a camp a couple of hours away. Their desert camp is nestled into the side of a dune so easy to scramble up for the sunset and sunrise. Dinner was fantastic as was the unexpected entertainment with African drums and singing. Definitely recommend.

It was well worth it, although the climb was reasonably hard, and it was nearing 40 degrees. It is today still lived in and local crafts are sold from some of the buildings. Definitely tired and were relived when we were told our Riad was about 10 minutes away. Staying at Ksar Ighnda oh my gosh what ...
There is no doubt about it, we love the desert. And being true desert freaks, we are the happiest when we are far off the beaten track in a wild desert environment.
Previous travels had led us through the great deserts of the Gobi and Taklamakan in China, the Lut and Kavir Deserts of Iran and the Kyzylkum and Karakum Deserts of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Even the mountainous lands of northern Pakistan were extremely arid. We were ...
... starting to take its toll. And anyway, we were both feeling nauseous from not eating and were both hoping we would stop for a break and perhaps have at least something to drink and eat. Mohamed must have been tired too as to our concern, we began to notice from time to time the car beginning to wander.
We were then in the real pink-orange desert of the Valley of Ziz River (Oued Ziz) and the land known as The Tafilalt (or Tafilalet), ...
