Frequently Asked Questions

In the desert Mineral Water and soft drinks are available.

What's a Bivouac?

The bivouac is a rudimentary camp that we set up in the middle of the desert and that will allow us to spend the night under the stars or in tents.

The concept consists in setting up the tent or camp without shelter in the evening at sunset and leaving in the morning.
