Bivouac in our cave: sleeping under the stars

Bivouac in our cave represents the experience of sleeping under the stars. It is the most authentic way to discover the bedouin life and traditions. 

Our cave is located in the middle of the desert, in the south, far from camps and touristic places. The cave is not a closed place, in fact is more an overhanging rock that protects from wind, the sun and rain. 

The night under the stars with us is a back to basics, so no bathrooms facilities, no toilets, no showers and no washbasins. This is an outdoor experience, in the heart of nature and its laws.

What does "sleeping under the stars" looks like with us?

At the end of the day, we drive until our cave. The guide is dedicated to you the whole night. He prepares your bivouac, with mattresses, thick blankets and sleeping bags (our equipment is clean, and our sleeping bags are washed every day at the dry cleaner) and he start a campfire. Then he prepares the traditional bedouin diner (With bedouin barbecue, salads, vegetables, rice, potatoes… and more), meanwhile you can explore around, watch the sunset or chill around the fire

The whole night the guide is available to exchange regarding what you desire, bedouin culture, stories, life of our ancestors… Why not also to play cards or even to dance listening bedouin music. Sometimes other bedouins, from our family or friends join us to enjoy the night and exchange. 

You fall asleep under a million stars and If you’re lucky with the weather and the moon you can be able to contemplate the milky way.The next morning you wake up with the sunrise, and you discover stunning landscape around you. Sleeping under the stars is desert memories for life…

Bivouac, what is our organization ?

Morever, we have a couple of locations where we can install our bivouac. The places where we organize the bivouac depend on your tour program and on the weather. But of course, we always opt for places far from humans installations and electricity to live at the best the experience of sleeping under the stars.

We constitute groups of maximum six persons during the day, likewise during the night under the stars/bivouac. Small groups only to keep the spirit of the desert and the experience of sleeping under the stars. Rarely, if we have no other possibilities, groups could be expanded until 8 to 10 persons. However, it is a specific case, and we manage as best as we can avoid it. If you are a group of more than six persons, of course you are welcome. We don’t separate your group.
