We start our first walking day towards Sidi Naji. We will start with a walk of about 5 hours. Our professional team will accompany you during your sahara trip and they will stay with you until the last day when you will return back to Mhamid village. Worthwhile to make a stop at the old kasbah of Mhamid, located near the palmeraie (palm grove), 3 km from the Oued Draa (the biggest river in southern Morocco). After having lunch in the palm grove, you can take a nap before continue walking. We will pass stunning desert landscapes, until our arrival at Sidi Naji, where we will spend the night in a desert wild camp, installed by our team.
