Sahara adventure

Previous post here.

With our flights rescheduled for Thursday  we woke on the Monday morning with two aims - find another place to stay, and book a trip to the Sahara Desert.

With both successfully done, we relaxed in our new riad that evening ready for the 12 hour journey over the Atlas Mountains the following day.

Tip: If you decide to go on an excursion, do not book in advance. This can cost 3x more. The Sahara trips take up to 15 people a time and most of the time the minibus isn't as full as they'd like. We spoke to the agent on the Monday and said we'd like to do the trip the following day and he gave us a deal at £37 each. This included travel there and back, a stop-off at a Kasbar and some Berber villages in the mountains, a sunset and sunrise camel ride, and dinner and breakfast. Bargain.

There's not many words I can write to encapsulate how breathtaking and wonderful this adventure was, so I'll let the pictures do the talking and fondly remember the night I spent dancing barefoot in the Sahara Desert under a blanket of stars.*


*Clumsily dancing. Because I severely pulled my groin muscles whilst riding the camel. It HURT.
