Far south from Ouarzazate, passed Zagora and the Draa Oasis towards west, the thin range of Djebel  Bani stands as the last obstacle before the great desert. That's where we invite for a family adventure  in the heart of the Sahara desert. You will experience the nomad way of life accompanied by an  experienced team and their loyal camels. You will enjoy the quietness of the starry nights, the beauty  of the shapes and the colours, and even the simple pleasure of rolling from the top of a dune. This trip  alternates a variety of desert landscapes: canyons, gueltas, oasis and sand dunes. It is certainly the  best initiation to the Saharan ambiance.
