Sports lovers will welcome the thrill that the Sahara desert offers. There are many activities that travellers enjoy. Camel treks are the most popular activity – the majority of people enter the desert by camel. For a faster experience, riding a dune buggy or a quad bike, or taking a 4×4 tour is an exhilarating experience for many people. Sand surfing (or sandboarding) is also a fun, popular activity and people will hike to the highest sand dunes and ride the board down. Many fit travellers enjoy trekking on the desert sand dunes. You must have a good level of health and fitness to enjoy these activities.
Many tourists enjoy wandering through the dunes and spotting wildlife such as desert foxes and desert mice. Birdwatchers can even find flamingoes in the desert! The desert is a photographer’s paradise for beautiful night sky and landscape photography. Many people enjoy stargazing at night, as well as watching stunning sunrises and sunsets.
Recently, desert spas have become common for people who are interested in improving their health and wellness. Sand baths are excellent for relaxing your muscles and easing pains.
