Caravane Desert et Montagne
… with Brahim Mohamed Elaabdouli
Friendly Fair Trade Tours

We begin in Zagora at 7 in the morning stopping first at Tamgroute to visit the Koranic Library and pottery factory. The next stop will be the town of Tagounite where we will buy the necessary supplies for the desert. About 10km out of Tagounite we leave the road and drive cross-country to the big dunes of Chigaga.

On this cross-country drive you will almost certainly come across Nomad encampments as this < < Sea of Dunes >> is where many Nomads live.We will stop whenever and wherever you choose for photographs.

About 13km before reaching Chigaga we will stop at a Sacred Oasis and here we will have a picnic lunch. Afterwards; we will continue onto the big dunes of Chigaga. Here you will be free to explore the dunes by yourself. The dunes and area surrounding them will need little explanation as they will speak volumes for themselves.

Our bivouac or camp will be made at Chigaga and here we will spend the night. After a delicious meal eaten around a campfire we will enjoy Nomad Folklore.

The following morning after breakfast we will break camp and drive cross-country for 65km to the town of M’hamid. Here we will find an asphalt road heading back to Zagora. On the way back to Zagora we will stop and explore < < Kasbah Ouled Driss >>.

We will arrive back in Zagora at midday, after a totally enjoyable and memorable desert adventure.
