Frequently Asked Questions

Rachel N – Nov 2021:

Afternoon day trip to Agafay desert with our wonderful guide Brahim, who picked us on time with his Toyota land cruiser. After 45 minutes ride, we arrived in Agafay desert ( Not sand but rocky terrain ). The sunset camel ride was enjoyable, but bumpy. The local guys served us some tea under nomads tents. They also sang for us! It was great afternoon, and highly recommended.

Molly C – Dec 2020:

We had a fantastic time. An amazing setting in Agafay's desert. Everything went as planned, with a particular thanks to Ahmed, our guide, who made the trip even lovelier.

Alan N – Apr 2021:

The camel ride was a lot of fun. The animals are a little agitated, but you relax comfortably and enjoy the dusk light as you journey in the caravan. In the Bedouin tent, there is still tea and music being played towards the conclusion. Everything was in a cheerful mood, and the guides were fantastic. They shot photographs with all of their phones from various angles.
