I enjoyed to see the desert sky with a huge amount of shining stars and moon...enjoyed riding a camel...enjoyed green-mint tea...it was so amazing to hear:"no,no there is no meat in food,just chicken".Some of our or co-travelers were vegetarians.
And we saw a sand lizard "poisson des sables"! I was happy about it.

The feeling when surrounded by the dunes is one of the most amazing experiences i've had in all my travels. No picture can do justice to the variation in colors of the sand that you can experience when there...

A night in the desert, under the stars.... Just do it! We had an awesome time there, we also climbed a pretty high dune after dark, and from the top the sight was something special.

We visited the Merzouga Desert (Erg Chebbi) on camel back. We took snowboards with us to go sand boarding down the dunes and it was so much fun. Only some of the companies take the sand boards and if you like that sort of adventure I'd highly recommend the experience! We also were brought to a nomadic berber family's camp and played with their children which was a lot of fun. If you want more detail about our 2-night Saharan adventure, check out our blog post (with video!) here:

We had an amazing time touring the outskirts of the desert and had a once in a lifetime experience riding camels into the desert and sleeping in tents. There are a bunch of tour companies that take trips into the desert so do your research before choosing one. Amazing sunset and sunrise!
