Dromedary camel (Tunesië)
The Great Eastern Sand Sea/Grand Erg Oriental is a large erg (sand sea) in the Sahara desert. It is situated for the most part in the northeast of Algeria and southern Tunisia and covers an area some 600km wide by 200km north to south. We drove 70km from Douz into the desert with a jeep. There our Bedouin companions and several camels were waiting for us and we started our 4,5-day hike on foot in the desert.
