Among those offers Merzouga presents to its visitors, comes desert camping forth! The usual means to reach bivouacs is by camels, which is an exceptional chance to experience both camping and camel trekking. The trip sets off about one hour before sunset.
On your road to bivouacs, you realize how lucky you’re to see the beauty of desert landscapes. At that moment, there’s nothing around you except the vast, pure sand dunes, and a quiet world penetrated by the footsteps of camels on the soft sand. Before reaching your camping place, you’ll witness the event no one visiting Merzouga would ever let slip through their fingers, it’s sunset; a magical view of sun as it glowes red, sinking slowly below the horizon.
At dusk, you’ll be only several minutes away from your destination, and when you ultimately reach, you’ll be given a warm welcome and be served a cup of tea. Then, you shall be shown your tent to rest while dinner is being prepared. After dinner, an unforgettable sit around the campfire takes place, accompanied by desert music which Berber people, who are put on their djallabas, made.
It’s such an inconceivable feeling being in that spot and having a walk on those dunes under the sheer stars. Thinking carefully of every moment you lived on that day, you get in to your tent in strange quietness and, finally, sleep.
