Very nice experience!

Thanks to Petrana and all his team for organizing a tailor-made trip. We lived an exotic stay reviving near Berber families. We discovered beautiful landscapes and were able to camel and quad. The bivouac in the desert is great and the evening around the fire is magic (starry sky, music, dance, succulent meal ....) The guide Mohamed has adapted to our pace and our wishes. This is an experience we recommend. Thanks again. See you soon. b
