The next morning we continue along the Dades Valley, visiting Dades Gorge, Todra, Todra Gorge and other interesting sites, making our way to Merzouga. In Merzouga we explore the village and meet our camels who will take us for a 1 and a half hour trip into the Dunes to reach our desert camp at Erg Chebbi. Each person will ride their own camel. The camel trek is usually just prior to sunset, so that you may enjoy the sun setting over the landscape from the top of the dunes. Once we arrive at the desert camp, we are greeted with a cup of delicious mint tea and we spend the evening under the stars, on the dunes and beside the warmth of the fireside. We enjoy a locally cooked meal of Tagine or couscous (vegetarians are catered for with vegetable tagine), a drum party and story swapping. The camp has toilet facilities. Those that wish to can sleep directly under the stars, but there are Bivouacs for everyone. The stars in the desert are a great opportunity to see as there are no artificial lights around and you can fully appreciate the glory of the skies above.
