Camel Trekking in the Sahara Desert – Chegaga Desert 11 Days
Camel Trek 11 Days To Erg Chegaga, Morocco Desert Hike is a trip over the huge dunes of southern Morocco with a skilled nomadic guide and camel drivers. The luggage is transported by camel caravan.
The fascination of desert immensities, an unusual encounter with nomads, the study and observation of animal and plant life, relaxation, silence, and total forgetfulness of civilization and the modern world in the heart of the Moroccan Sahara, at sunrise and unforgettable sunsets. During the hike, you live by the rhythm and intensity of the sun, and everyone moves at their own pace, escorted by camel drivers.
Before each stage departure, they assemble the camels, which had grazed on desert bushes all night, gather the wood for the fire, prepare the tea, and bake the bread in the sand.
