Stay hydrated by bringing plenty of water to combat the desert’s hot and arid conditions. Consider carrying an additional backup supply in your vehicle for added safety.


Protect your skin from the intense desert sun by packing ample sunscreen. Don’t forget to apply it generously and share with fellow travelers who may have forgotten to bring their own. Remember to include sunblock specifically for your lips, as they are more prone to burning.

Wide Hat

Shield yourself from the sun’s rays with a wide-brimmed hat. Opt for a hat that provides excellent coverage for your head, eyes, and neck, ensuring protection from the scorching desert weather.


Make sure you have a good pair of sunglasses that offer UV protection. Protecting your eyes from the intense sunlight is crucial for a comfortable and enjoyable Sahara Desert trip.

Pack appropriate clothing, including jeans for camel riding, a warm jacket for cool desert evenings, comfortable walking shoes for exploring, and scarves or turbans to shield your face during sandstorms or windy weather.


Don’t compromise on your regular hygiene routine. Pack essential toiletries such as face wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, body wash, and body lotion to stay fresh during your desert adventure. your Luxury desert camp will supply towels and essential toiletries.

Small Flashlight

While the desert camp provides most of your necessities, a small flashlight can be handy for navigating around the camp at night. Whether you want to stargaze or require additional light, a flashlight is a valuable tool when generators are turned off.

Travel First Aid Kit

Carry a well-stocked travel first aid kit to handle any unexpected situations. Be prepared for minor injuries, such as cuts, twisted ankles, upset stomachs, or headaches, ensuring a worry-free journey.

GPS or Maps

It’s crucial to have a reliable navigation tool when exploring the vast Sahara Desert. While apps like Google Maps are useful, remember to be prepared for limited or no internet connectivity. Hiring a local guide or carrying offline maps will ensure you don’t lose your way.


Since electricity may be limited in the desert camp, bringing a power bank is essential for charging any devices you may need overnight.
