Οne of those huge, drifting expanses of sand dunes, located in the west end of the Sahara desert. Α magical landscape, where the dunes are fascinating, changing colour from pink to red at different times of the day. It is also a great place to appreciate the immense, clear desert sky.

    WOW! Beautiful colours – wish I was there!

  • Well, it was very cold before the sunrise, we had to wake up at 4 o’clock and have one hour camel ride in to the desert… Very, very clean air… wonderful feeling…! The vastness and the emptiness makes all the difference… Cheers Natalie!
