Baggages
Baggage transportation

You will travel with a lightweight backpack, carrying only the personal belongings needed for the day (gourd, camera, protective clothing, etc.).
Individual and collective luggage is transported by camel – mules to the desert and the coast.
We have negotiated with all the accommodations we use so that you can leave your city affairs with them, and retrieve them on the return. Bring a small secondary bag to store them; they will be grouped in a large bag that we provide, closed with a padlock.

Advice
Be well equipped

From November to February, nights are usually cold in the desert (it can be freezing at night).
On mountain tours, even during summer, nights can be very cold.
Depending on the season and the itinerary, you must bring warm clothes (several layers) and an appropriate sleeping bag.

Equipment

All of your belongings will be distributed between a small backpack that you will carry during the walks and a travel bag with a padlock, carried by the local logistics team. Choose a soft bag that will be easier to carry by the mules: camels.
