I contacted several camps and went with Ahmed and rum stars as had clear and comprehensive responses to every daft question I had.
I had arranged to meet in the village at 18:00, but was early. Ahmed was exactly on time (apologised even though my fault I had been waiting!)
Camp prestine, toilets and showers cleaner than anything I've seen, 'tents' (more like cabins) cozy.
Only one thing I'd improve is some books in the tents to hang clothes
We stayed three nights and very professionally run, but still kind, polite and welcoming.
We took 2 tours, both good but for me the classic tour was blasting round the desert to stop with 8 other hiluxs to look at something, not for me, although our guide was brilliant
The second tour tour was much more for me, our guide was calm, funny, thoughtful and realised we just wanted the desert, so set us easy routes to hike and met us the other end. While he waited he made tea, prayed, collected grass for his goats and looked out on the desert.
Really happy, thanks Ahmed and team.
