4x4 Erg Chebbi Desert Tour

4x4 Erg Chebbi Desert Tour
  • Category

    Desert Activities

One of the best ways to explore the region of the Sahara Desert is with a 4x4 tour. There are tracks used by the drivers doing the Paris to Dakar rally and these take you deep into the desert where we discover mineral mines, oases and archaeological sites. You can also meet a nomadic family and see the different lifestyles of desert dwellers, their cultures and traditions. We will visit the village of Khamlia to watch the local Sudanese descendants of slaves as they perform soulful gnawa music that tells stories of their past. We will visit the market town of Rissani and try the Berber Pizza called Medfouna. There is an important site here called Sijimassa; the first city and has an interesting history. The dunes of Erg Chebbi are the highest in this part of the Sahara and there is a seasonal lake there that attracts flamingos as well as many species of migratory birds.
