After leaving Zagora we head even further south, along the Jbel Tadrart mountain range. On the way, we will pass through Tagounite towards M'hamid, very close to the Algerian border.
We then continue by dirt track towards the Sacred Oasis and the dunes of Erg Cheggaga, from where we will drive once more through a seemingly endless sea of sand until we get to a fantastic sandy track leading to Lake Iriki.
Iriki National Park, covering 123,000 hectares, offers protection to a multitude of desert species during its brief wet periods, especially birds, but also gazelles, oryx and hyenas.
We will finish our day in Foum Zguid, a town created next to a Moroccan military post, crossroads, caravan crossing and stage of the old Paris Dakar rally.
