SAHARA TRAVERSE 15 DAYS CAMELS TREK
Tip for guide (depending on group size) : tip for cook: . Please bring envelopes to put tipping money in.Drivers for the last 2 days:
There are a few more things:– drinking water: so for the first 3 days you can buy supply in Tazzarine. Then again in Mahresj for the time you are there and then for day 7-10 Mahresj —Znaigae. You could arrange with the guide that water will be delivered at Znaigae (or even the day before, at El Atrous) by the family of the camel drivers. They will probably order supplies (cigarettes, bread, meat) to be delivered somewhere anyway. Should all drinking water be finished, then the water from the wells must be purified.
– bread: this will be bought on the day of departure to the desert and will get tougher and tougher. My experience is that Brahim’s family will bake new bread, but this will only be on day 9 or later.
– food: like in the mountains, so plenty to choose from at breakfast, a salad with cheese and canned fish for lunch, and soup, main course and dessert for dinner. If there are any vegetarians, then meals can be prepared separately.
– walking in the desert: it is not always necessary to walk together as a group, especially on the big, open plains when you can easily see where the guide is going. In sandy areas you can follow the traces of the camel that is carrying lunch. If the group is getting too scattered then you should wait for the last ones to catch up regularly.There are circumstances when the group has to stay together, like in a sand storm. I hope not that this will happen, but it is not unusual.
