We will also join a camel train to spend a night under the stars at a Touareg encampment, watch the stunning sunrise over the silent rippling dunes and explore this fascinating desert region before returning via Rissani and ancient slave routes to Fes. We will have one and more overnight stays at these destinations with excursions to places of interest and artisan centers.
