After breakfast in the riad, you will start an explorative journey of the area. You’ll visit the Gnawa people - originally slaves brought from Sudan - to experience their music and lifestyle. Not far away, there’s the Merzouga lake, with its bird populations. You may also visit the souk in Rissani, a traditional town, which was the origin of the ruling family in Morocco and the meeting place of the Caravans trading as far as Timbuctoo in Mali. Here, you will see a lot of men hooded and women veiled. Back to the village of Merzouga for some rest, in the afternoon you will mount your camel, guided by an experienced camel man to explore within the sand-sea of Merzouga. Overnight will be at our desert camp, where you will have your dinner. For your convenience, the camp is equipped with western bathrooms.
