TravelPod Member ReviewsAuberge le Petit Prince Merzouga
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.

... when we started playing Rock the Kasbah and Funky Old Medina on the little speakers we had. Then Bella and I became DJ's for a while and she was a big hit when she found "Africa" on her iPod. We turned all the lights off and lay back and stared at the sky - it has been a long time since I have seen that many stars and it became a completion to see as many shooting stats as you can. Even though we had only had 5 hours sleep the night before we just didn't feel tired ...
Today we visited a small fossil processing factory in Taouz, some 20 km south from Merzouga. GPS N30 54.023 W004 00.442. Facebook: Fossiles Taouz

... but we can't afford that, then of course we had to explain they couldn't come in the suitcase because they were too heavy!! Other places we drove through was Boumalne Dades, Erfoud and Rissani. We arrived at the edge of the Erg Chebbi dunes where we stored our luggage in a small hot room. The Sahara itself is amazing desolate yet in places lush and incredible. Anyway no time to waste and we were on the backs of the camels who were waiting patiently, just us 2 and an Italian guy. ...
... it seemed did not support any vegetation at all. What the nomads' animals ate, we had no idea. Mohamed's passion for the desert need not have been infectious. We were truly in our element. The desert changed to sand and a few lonely flat topped Desert Tamarisks dotted the landscape. So this is what Africa looks like, I thought. Yes, it was as truly beautiful as I had hoped. Alan, despite his acute discomfort, was feeling the same. ...
... buy me a coffee. I get the "ulterior motives" feeling, the same one I am use to seeing on a daily basis when I walk the streets, I feel like he's going to demand money later or throw me in the corner and assault me. I know it's horrible to think things of someone who is helping you so much but this is not somewhere a lone female should be trusting men when she is made to look like she's in a vulnerable situation. It's unlikely, but still a possibility that he could take advantage of the ...
