The camel trek is about an hour with a break in the heart of the desert in order to witness the sunset. If you prefer to walk then you can walk alongside our camel caravan but bear in mind that walking in the sand can be tiring.
Every part of our journey was perfect. The camel ride was great, the hike to the top of the dunes was exhausting, but the sunset made it worth it. The tent was amazing and the drum circle after dinner was inspiring.
