Camel Trekking

Experience life like a Berber of days gone by and ride a camel across the desert sands to get yet another perspective of the amazing landscape. and enjoy the magic sunset in the top of the sand dunse of Erg chebbi.

Travelling around Merzouga by camel is highly recommended. Apart from being ecologically sound, it enables you to experience Merzouga as the Berberian have for centuries and to appreciate the silent gravitas of the desert. That said, a ride of more than about four hours will leave you sore in places you never knew existed.

The camel is no longer a common form of transport for Berbers; most now prefer the ubiquitous pick-up truck – in fact, it’s not unusual to see a Berber transporting a prized camel in the back of a Toyota. These grumpy but loyal animals, however, are still very much part of the Berber culture.
