  • Superb, tent with comfort (shower, toilet, and sink) and bed all comfort. Typical evening with couscous, descent of the dunes with surfboard and small hike on camel dis.... Perfect!

  • We arrived in a jeep just before nightfall, saw the sunset on top of a dune, relaxation, peace and then dinner with dancing! What more can you ask for?
