We will stop for lunch in a small Berber village of Zaida before continuing through the Atlas Mountains, enjoying the landscapes of Medilt, to arrive to the small town of Rich.

Dinner is served in the hotel near Erg Chebbi where we will spend the night.
DAY 3: TOUR AROUND THE DESERT BY 4X4 – CAMEL RIDE – NIGHT IN CAMP
In the morning, we start our tour around the dunes of Erg Chebbi. We will visit a berber house and listen to some Gnawa music originally from Ghana and Sudan. We will visit some deserted mines, Berber nomads, and oasis of palm trees. For lunch, we will head back to Merzouga. After relaxing for a time we will go for the camels that are waiting to take us on an adventure in the sand dunes.
Before we leave for the desert, the camels will be packed with water, food, blankets, and everything else which we will need for the trip. Each person will have their own camel and the ride will take 1.5 hours to reach the inside the dunes.
You will arrive to your own private tent, and then you can walk in the dunes to watch the beautiful sunset and try sand boarding on the sand dunes. After seeing the sun set, you will go down back to the camp to enjoy mint tea (what we call Moroccan Berber Whiskey!). Then you will have your meal of delicious Moroccan Berber tagine in the camp. After dinner, the party will start. Local Berber nomad musicians will play traditional music with drums and dancing. Afterwards, you will watch the magical sky full of stars and enjoy the peaceful desert. Dinner and overnight in nomad camp.
