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.

Well we made it! After the second day, we loaded up on the bikes, charley, Todd, myself, and 4 others were sent to try and get over the pass to get everyone over. This by far was the most terrifying thing I have ever done in my life. We are 2200m up on a mountain trying to get over the top while buses and trucks are coming at you, which ...

Did we want a guide, or did we just want to wander and get lost and discover things for ourselves? As it turned out, Mohammed was the best option by far. He was waiting downstairs, and we talked for a while about what we wanted to do. We wanted to dive into the medina, not for shopping, but to see some real things that weren't necessarily ...
... into a town and thinking we had gone the wrong way made a U-turn in a rutted rain muddied street. Another heavy rain storm that we had watched racing across the plain, but which had missed us. After a detour of 40-50 kms, and having been the victim of kids with bicycle road blocks and stone throwing, we found our way back to where were supposed to be. Well the junction anyway. Much to my dismay, about 100m from where we had done the U-turn. Having got on ...
... all night :)
The next morning, very bleary eyed, another guide picked us up to take on a 4x4 tour around the villages. He showed us ancient wells and the art of water divining and then left us to be entertained by Gnawa tribal music- incredible.
Jumping off our camels we trudge up one of the many sand dunes in sight. At it's peak I lay down on the warm ground ...
