Erg Chebbi - April 24th and 25th
We made it to the edge of the Sahara. The sand dunes are a beautiful orange color. There are camels everywhere hauling tourists out to overnight camps. We decided to skip the camels and Berber tents. Instead we took a 4 wheel tour around Erg Chebbi, the large dune area. It was a good day trip.
We camped at Auberge Haven La Chance located on the edge of the dunes. This is off season so there were only 4 other vehicles in the campground.
The restaurant was closed.
The pool was popular in the afternoon heat.

We had lunch in a nomad camp. Salad and nomad pizza - goat meat, onions, and spices stuffed in nomad bread. It was very good.
