Dunes & canyons

with No Comments

2 days/1 night. This tour will take you into the dunes, for a night under the stars and in the silence of the Sahara desert, and then through beautiful canyons leading to herders’ wells. Looking for a night on the beach, instead? Have a look at our Imlili & coast and Ocean sunset packages!


Programme – Dunes & canyons

Day 1. The first day will be spent on a pleasantly soft terrain after a stretch of tarmac heading east. We will enjoy several stops, to relax and have lunch under acacia trees, and run on the very first dunes. We will reach our camp site into denser dunes before sunset, set up the camp, have dinner and saharawi tea and watch the stars. If willing, spotlighting on foot to look for small animals in the immediate surrounding is also possible (headlights provided).

Day 2. We will have breakfast, pack the camp, keep driving a bit into the dunes and then move on hard terrain over a plateau. We’ll cross it until we reach a canyon-like area leading to wells often visited by herders. We’ll have lunch and take a pause. From here we will keep driving off-road until we reach the tarmac road along the Atlantic coast, heading south back to Dakhla. Time permitting, we may have a detour at the White Dune around sunset.
