Erg Chigaga affords the opportunity to explore the dune sea, either on foot or by camel. The sand dunes of Chegaga offer 40 kilometres square of exploration. Meeting with Nomads we have an opportunity to better understand the Berber way of life. Camping in the established camp, the African adventure comes into it’s own as the sun sets and the unspoilt night sky comes alive. Leaving the camp we take a pass used on the Dakar Rally arriving at Forum Zguid  for lunch. We continue on to Taznakht the town described by Charles de Foucauld in 1883 as the ‘Home of the Khnif’ which means carpets where the entire population is occupied in weaving and embroidery. Finishing the day we walk through the fields of Saffron in Taliouine.

After breakfast we leave Taliouine to explore different landscapes passing by different villages, through Argan forests and seeing goats climbing the Argan trees. We cross the Tizi n’Test (2090m) followed by a visit to the Tinmal Mosque which is considered one of Morocco’s most important historical sites, built during the 12th century.
