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.

Der Guide hat mich nur im Kreis rumgeschickt, die Treppe, die Spirale und die Stadt des Orion sind nur für 4x4 zu erreichen. Was aber nicht Stimmt. Hab ihn dann wieder abgesetzt und bin alleine weiter nach Merzouga. Hier mit einem Jeep in den Erg Chebbi zum Sonnenuntergang. Übernachtungsplatz le Petit Prince.

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. ...
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), ...
