We will then arrive at the dunes by traveling along the same stretch of the Paris-Dakar Road, and we will also have the opportunity to get in touch with some semi-nomadic families who will explain how they live in the special conditions of the desert. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We will then return to the riad where we will abandon our 4×4 to begin a new adventure.
