Fortified villages and dunes of the Sahara 2021

“I’ve always liked the desert. You sit on a sand dune. You can not see anything. Nothing is heard. And yet something shines in the silence. ” Thus, in a nutshell, Antoine de Saint-Exupery tells the desert, an emotion that cannot be told but only experienced … We will ride through the Great Eastern Erg, the central part of the Sahara desert, whose surface is covered for more than 70% from an immense sea of sand, 6 million tons. An extreme territory, characterized by cords of high sand dunes created by the complex winds that blow without stopping.
