Berber Camping

Here are a few tips for camping Berber style in the Sahara.

  • camp on the hard surfaces between the dunes
  • sprinkle dry sand on the ground for insulation and padding
  • dig below the wet sand if you have to, to find the dry stuff
  • try putting the poles in upside down (spike first) to stabalise them in the sand
  • use camel saddles as anchors for the guy ropes
  • hold the sides (of the marquee) down with sand – wet works even better than dry
  • make two fires – one for cooking and one for warmth – and alternate as the coals grow too cool for cooking
  • use the water containers as drums for making music
