What to See

The first thing is the experience of riding a camel through golden dunes is an experience you will keep with you for years to come. What a great way to spend a holiday.

Erg Ubari is a towering golden dune that will take your breath away and most likely where your camel trekking adventure will start.

Lake Ubari is a spectacular lake surrounded by palm trees and towering dunes. The picture perfect moment when you see so much water surrounded by so much sand. There are twenty lakes in total to see and explore.


Mandara is an oasis area and well worth seeing before heading to Gaberouan, a lake oasis. You can swim here or just be amazed by the abundance of natural beauty.

See if your camel will take you to Sabha, where you can explore Fort Elena Castle.

The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world, and the third largest desert behind Antarctica and the Arctic, which are both cold deserts. The Sahara is one of the harshest environments on Earth, covering 3.6 million square miles (9.4 million square kilometers) Libya

Things to Consider

The Sahara Desert is considered the hottest desert in the world so it doesn’t matter what time of year you choose to visit be sure to carry plenty of bottled water and keep yourself hydrated.

Your basic sun cream, sun hat and sunglasses should be in your bag and use your sun cream throughout the day, it can get very hot there and those who aren’t used to this type of sun will burn quickly, ruining your holiday.

Wear cool and loose fitting clothing, so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
