In the large festival area we had our campsite 'at the first seat' opposite the mainstage. The camp was just behind the circular dune ridge, used as gallery during the performances at the mainstage (picture 1). At the other side of the camp we had view at the white sanddunes and empty desert (picture 2). Our camp, arranged by the Bamako based tour agency Cheche tours, has their own four desert toilets (picture 3) just behind our camp. A basic but perfect solution: oil drums with a hole. If you wish, you can visit one of the white buildings in the centre of the festival area for running water or even a hot shower for a few cents (picture 4).
Because there was a lack of small tents, I had the chance to sleep in one of the brown camelskin nomad tents (picture1 & 2). During the nights is was chilly in both types of tents. In the burning sun it was too hot in the small tents, but the nomad tents were very comfortable during the day due to the thick camel skin (picture 5).
