BORJ BIRAMANE - Guest House and Camp | ICHT

Set beside a spectacular escarpment by an oasis on the outskirts of the village of Icht in a fascinating area on the northern edge of the Sahara, this very well managed property with pool offers either en suite rooms in a tower with fine views or “Berber bungalows” with tented roofs and high quality shared bathrooms as well as 4x4 trips to sand dunes.

From here head north to Tafraoute in the Anti Atlas, west to Mirleft on the Atlantic coast or east to Tata, after taking advantage of 4x4 excursion options to local dunes and Neolithic rock engravings.
