Camel trek for the day to get away from the heat at camp and to a mini oasis nearby, once occupied and farmed by nomads. The sand dunes were a bit patchy due to some rain showers the week before, but I’m thankful it cleared up for us ☀️ 🐪 🌵
Three Days Trip Into Desert
Day 1: Mhamid – Oued Naam
This camel tour is an eco-tourism sojourn off the beaten track in the dunes of the Sahara. It allows you to experience the simpler and quieter life, customs and tradition of nomadic tribes. The tour starts from Mhamid, the “Gate of the desert” and brings you to the real desert. Ride camels for approximately 10 km over small dunes and enjoy lunch under a tamarisk tree. In the afternoon, we continue our camel trek to the Oued Naam (dry river), a meeting place for nomads tribes that take water from a local well. Here you will enjoy the dinner and spend the night in nomad tents or under the starlit sky.
Day 2: Oued Naam – Erg Chegaga
After breakfast in this unique and quiet atmosphere, you will have an optional hour of the camel ride. Afterwards, depart with 4×4 vehicle towards a different area of the desert until we reach a Sacred Oasis for a lunch break under the shade of palm trees.
After a relaxing nap, we travel to Erg Chegaga, the site of the largest group of sand dunes in the region reaching a height of 300 m and a span of 40 km. Here you’ll enjoy dinner with-entertainment and spend the night either under the stars or in nomad tents at a bivouac.
Day 3: Erg Chegaga – Mhamid
Admire an unforgettable sunrise with morning breeze and enjoy breakfast served in a tent or in the open air before we come back with our vehicle to the village of Mhamid, where arrival is expected around 10:30 am.

I have always wanted to ride a camel and I finally got to in Mongolia, with the Khongoryn Els (AKA the “Singing Sand”) dunes as a stunning backdrop. These are the highest dunes in Mongolia, reaching up to 80 meters!
Throw back… Tuesday? I still haven't shared much from Egypt, and I'm visually attracted to this colorful photo of a camel being dressed up as though it were a plastic doll. 🌞
Integrity. One reason that I felt repelled from the tour group I found myself with for the first few days in Egypt had to do with integrity. Healthy food options, cultural awareness, and camel riding were a few of these out-of-alignments. Let's take a moment to stop and ask ourselves, what do we believe in and how often are we pressed to take a stand for it? How often do we follow along for the sake of convenience, to be polite, or to be liked? Riding camels was a line drawn for me, and I didn't want to be a rainy cloud on everyone else's desert adventure. How often do we stop and question what we're doing? 🌞
"These camels are kept in poor conditions and forced to work under grueling schedules that are harmful, abusive and in some cases deadly. Most of them aren't kept or treated in an ethical or humane way, with many operators putting the need for profit and the tourist wishes above any care for the animals involved. Quite often their owners do not have the expertise, knowledge or even resources needed to keep their camels in a responsible way, and this can have a detrimental impact to their wellbeing and health." -bemused backpacker
Education is power. Ask questions and stay curious. Fortunately I left the group before pulling out my soapbox. To each their own, full respect.
Nakon spoznaje da sam apsolutni antitalent za vožnju quada (2 totalno neuspješna kruga koja su završila zabijanjem u zaštitne gume), morala sam pronać neku novu zanimaciju, pa evo gospodo s Instagrama, predstavljam vam gospođicu Lamborghini, moje prijevozno sredstvo 😍 P.S. @robertslibar evo jedne s devom 😂 #svenampaše#loveegypt#camelride 🐫
Une heure de dromadaire pour rejoindre notre camps en plein désert.
Et pendant tout le trajet, pendant que je me balançais sur la selle de mon dromadaire, je n'avais qu'une seule chose en tête 😂
🎶 Moi je viens d'un pays de désert infini,
Où les caravanes rêvent et flânent.
Où, pendant ton sommeil,
Les serpents t'ensorcellent !
C'est bizarre ça?
Mais, eh, c'est chez moi !
Quand le vent vient de l'Est,
Le soleil est à l'Ouest,
Et s'endort dans les sables d'or...
C'est l'instant envoûtant,
Vole en tapis volant,
Vers la magie des nuits d'Orient !
Ô nuits d'Arabie,
Mille et une folies.
Plus chaude à minuit
Qu'au soleil, en plein jour !
Ô nuits d'Arabie,
Au parfum de velours.
Pour le fou qui se perd,
Au coeur du désert,
Fatal est l'amour !🎶

不過最失控的不是我的Butterfly，而是 @happyiii 的駱駝Sunny，也就是照片裡跟我親親的那一隻😘
Every camel have their name and trait.
My camel, her name is Butterfly, 21 years old, the leader of all camels.
My friend’s camel named Sunny, always hungry, non-stop eating.
And Sunny likes to kiss with humans, so she kissed me in the picture😘
