Our practical advice:
- For walking, it takes comfortable shoes but not too heavy and a second pair to alternate so as not to have the friction always in the same place and avoid blisters, sandals are ideal for the desert, (with socks ).
- Take a warm sweater for the night as well as a windbreaker.
- Do not forget sunscreen, a lip stick and a pack of wipes, toilet paper with a lighter to burn it after use.
- The sleeping bag is absolutely mandatory for traveling bivouacs, moreover it makes you a personal sleeping (more hygienic) which does not prevent to add the cover, it is not necessary in the fixed bivouacs.
- You can also take a flashlight or frontal, very useful.
- It is also good to take a pharmacy kit with first aid for a small dressing, paracetamol, anti diarrhea and your usual medications if you have any.
- When you are about to leave with the dromedaries, we will ask you to take only the necessary for the hike and leave the rest in the bivouac in a safe place or in your car … so plan the possibility of dividing your luggage into two parts ..
- It should be noted that camels easily carry bags, but not suitcases.
- Check that the passport has been stamped by the border police authorities. In Morocco, for a stay equal to or less than three months, a valid passport is required. Beyond three months, it is advisable to contact the Moroccan immigration service.
- Avoid taking pictures of people without permission.
- Before taking a photo, ask your guide if it is possible to take photos of the locals.
