We began our day with a camel ride through the Sahara oasis near M’Hamid and in the evening we hopped on the jeep to visit the big dunes. Later we ended up at the Bedouin camp were we had a very nice dinner and listened to some... More

After visiting Bivouac sous les Etoiles two camps last year, we decided to return to spend a bit more time in the desert. Part of our trip involved a two night camel trek covering some of the route out to Chigaga. All I can say is it was wonderful. As a family of five (with kids of 15, 13 and... More

We booked the classical 48-hour tour from Mhamid: 1 day by camel in a bivouac and 1 day by 4WD to Chigaga. Hamza and the two camel guys were really helpful, always willing to share interesting stories about Berbere culture and cooking delicious meals! :) Would recommend 100%!

Friendly helpful, and did their best. Could have had a chattier guide but he still showed us the sights. The camp is well isolated, and just inside the dunes. They don't accept card payments and there is NO CASH MACHINE untill you get to a town that is 1h30 away....
