Activities

Many overnight camel treks from M’Hamid head to Erg Lehoudi or the smaller dunes of El Mesouiria, 8km from M'Hamid. You can arrive there by piste, off the main road 18km before M’Hamid, but a guide is advisable. The highlight is a camel trek to Erg Chigaga. Other nearby desert destinations include Erg Ezahar and the Iriki oasis mirage. And if you get the hang of camel-riding, you might consider an epic 12-day camel trip to Foum Zguid.
