In the afternoon, set off by camel for an hour trek out to the oasis where you will spend the night in deluxe Berber tents we have adapted for wheelchair users. If you think riding a camel is out of the question, think again – an adapted camel saddle is available! Whether you are quadriplegic, paraplegic or have balance disturbances, our saddle has been created with you in mind. Of course, you are the best judge of whether this will be desirable/possible for you. Alternatively, take a 4×4 out to the desert camp or stay at the auberge at the edge of the desert if preferred.
