CAMEL TREK

CAMEL TREKS

The desert is not a place, but rather a dimension without time and space under a forever-burning sun, born of thousands of years of work by natural forces and expanding on and on, in an immense expanse of dunes of sand and bleak land.

As the fine sand of the Sahara seeps into the body, the rhythm of the Sahara seeps into the soul; uplifting the spirit by allowing for thoughts and meditation in a natural and timeless way. In the desert, days are meaningful and lived without hurry, allowing you to live and be present in each moment.

These camel treks are not for everyone. A great trek needs time and should not be rushed. These are not quick package tours rather journeys for those who desire to experience the real Sahara and the Bedouin nomad way of life.

Choose one of our posted itineraries or we can create a custom trek for you based on how many days you want to spend in the desert. Our treks are not private, but are open for others to join. We do this in order to provide more work for cameleers and other local people and to keep the cost down for participants. That is why, when we have a confirmed trek, we advertise the trek to try to get others to join. We dont do mass tourism (maximum of 12 participants) because we really want people to experience the caravan way of life. If you want a private trek, the costs posted do not apply and we will have to calculate for private treks.

Ali liked his style of life doing caravans and the easyness of life. He wanted to show this and the beauty of the desert to others who have never had the chance experience what he has. Ali began to organize tours from his familly auberge in 2005 and he has been doing it ever since. Here is a list of tours available which begin from the edge of the desert to the dunes of Erg Chebbi:

This trip begins after a relaxed lunch (depending on when you arrive). The camels will be packed with food, blankets and everything else which we will need. The trek will start right into the desert, where it is completely secluded.
