Desert Tour

Day 4 – (approx. 200km)



Hotel Les Portes de Desert in Merzouga. Relaxing after biking in the Cathedral dunes of Erg ChebbiAfter breakfast, we will get on our bikes and go straight out into the famous Red Dunes of Erg Chebbi and attempt to reach the top of the highest "cathedral dune.” 

We will spend time way out in the dunes and sand before returning to our auberge for some pre- lunch relax timeby the pool, and then setting off for our next destination - our desert bivouac - 100kms away.



Dakar tracks through the Sahara desertStarting with hard-packed winding tracks leading to a large and dry sandy riverbed crossing. 

Then, it will be onto very pleasant and fast-winding sandy trails. Loads of acacia trees and for those who know East Africa, you could imagine giraffes and elephants.  The night’s accommodation is in our pleasant Berber Bivouac with hot showers. It is situated close to a large area of middle-sized dunes.

Our desert bivouac at Ouzina Rimal in the Sahar and just 50kms from the Algerian border



In the late afternoon or early evening, once the sand has cooled down and weather permitting, those wanting more biking can go and play in the dunes or alternatively walk to the top and toast the sunset with a beer.
