Each night, we will set up camp amongst the dunes, while our local team seeks out the hidden wells from which we replenish our water supply. Rocky plateaux and the occasional tamarisk tree may break the uniformity of the rolling sand ridges, but this is the real Saharan experience, far from the nearest settlement or road. This amazing holiday can be combined with the Jebel Sahro Walking Week.
