There will be time to explore the fortified village (ksar), which is a great example of earthen clay architecture. Films like 'Gladiator', 'Marco Polo', 'Son of God' and many more have been shot here.

Climb on top of the dunes and enjoy the sunset! After dinner you can listen to the drums and the songs of the local staff under the starry sky! A magical experience! We will spend the night in tents, all equipped with private shower and WC. (For those who prefer – it is also possible to go by 4X4 to the camp.)
