Day 1: M’hamid – Rass Nkhal ( Among the Tamarisk trees)
Start your Sahara camel trek by Leaving the village of M’hamid and trek west in the direction of the great dunes of Erg Chigaga, with the mountain ridge of the Jebel Bani far to your north but in sight for the entire trek. Your camel trekking will take you through the dry river beds (e.g. Oued Naam), and walk through a variety of desert vegetation and scrub before the terrain opens out and becomes more stark. As the day’s sahara camel trek draws to a close, expect to camp amidst gently rolling dunes and Tamarisk trees, which offer shelter.
