Day 1 : M'hamid - Erg Chegaga - Desert Candles Camp

2 departures per day from M’hamid:

1st departure at 11:00: We start from M’hamid and drive off-road into Sahara with a 4×4 Landcruiser for about an hour until we reach an oasis. Here we have our lunch in the shade from the palm trees and enjoy the silence and tranquility unique for the desert. After lunch we continue through the desert landscape until we arrive at our desert camp in the beautiful sand dunes.

Or, (depending on the season) we drive directly to our desert camp in Erg Chegaga dunes and have our lunch here. The drive takes around 1,5 – 2 hours.

2nd departure at 14:00: The trip starts from M’hamid and we drive for around 1,5 – 2 hours until we reach our camp in Erg Chegaga dunes.

You can choose to go for an hour long camel ride into the gorgeous sand dunes and experience a memorable sunset from the highest sand dune. Maybe you also want to try sandboarding down the dunes?

Back in the camp there is time for a refreshing shower before a 3 course dinner is served in the restaurant tent. After dinner, the nomads play traditional nomad music around the fire place and you can sing and dance along, if you like. Enjoy a fantastic starlit sky. Sleep in a nomad tent or outside, under the stars.

Day 2: Erg Chegaga - M'hamid

Maybe you want to get up early to catch the beautiful sunrise? Or just wake up to enjoy the camp breakfast. After breakfast we start the trip back, through the desert, to the nomadic village by our 4×4 Landcruiser. Arrival in M’hamid before noon. Hopefully you will bring many nice memories from the trip.
