our first night in the Lut was very very windy, we feared for our roof top tents. So second night it was very important to find an even more sheltered place than first night. This place is sheltered from 3 sides by kaluts and small dune. Often wind from north. Here you are sheltered. Also shadow in afternoon and morning. Beautiful surroundings. Walking up the Sandy slopes nearby you can enjoy the sunset.

if you follow mapsme tracks in order to cross the plateau towards the drive into the Kalut Valley choose here the left track of the two tracks indicated on mapsme. Both left and right takes you to the valley but going left here it is much easier to follow and drive.

Steps at the curve of the road lead up to. Locked metal shack. Doesn’t seem to be open to public. Nice view and can be a rest stop on half way mark to paso Mayer

Fill up any size water container for 25 cents a gallon. No hose connections. Delicious reverse osmosis filtered water. Several 24 hour dispensers outside the building. I was able to easily fill my two 5 gallon containers.

30,- plus Tax now for a tent-place. I explained, that we don‘t need a serviced place and then she became very unfriendly. Even water filling up has to be paid extra! „I wanted an unserviced place! I have to pay for water!“

Best spot to camp out if you are staying in the Santa Barbara area. The hills can get really windy but there is a big pull out, which could accommodate 2 vans or a big rig, nestled in the corner where there is barely any wind. Amazing views, definitely better than the other spots up in the hills right above Santa Barbara. Do keep those hairpin corners in mind ;)

beautiful place, oiwever it is no longer possible to wildcamp here, there are signs saying so, plus a local in a shed on the beach also said its not allowed due to "military stuff". it's allowed to take photos at least

Nice Camping and Bungalows on the beach, mostly for fisherman, but others welcome too. Run by Ali, local fisherman. Camp has toilets, hot showers, a restaurant and beach bar. Price was 100DH per peson plus 150DH for the car (with rooftoptent). Only approachable with 4x4 (on sandy road, plus deep sand uphill to get to the entrance at the very end - here you should air down the tires). Also note it is very windy.

Quiet place on the N2. Perfect for one night if, like us, you had a long driving day. We parked our car on the "hill" - the place of the original description is not available during rainy season and few weeks after. So, Not really hidden from the N2 but nobody came to disturb us and We didn't really heard car noises during the night.

Probably the easiest border in all west africa ! Friendly officers and everything was easy and fast. Entry stamp on the passeport and entry stamp for the CPD are made in differents "offices", 15 meters apart. We were here on a Saturday, officers are not on site all day but the people called him and he arrived 15 minutes later.

Probably the easiest border in all west africa (same on the Guinean side) ! Friendly officers and everything was easy and fast. Entry stamp on the passeport ONLY (for the CPD, it's another checkpoint - we had it on the map). Border open everyday.

Huge Walmart, we stayed here for the weekend while sightseeing. No hassles. Moved to the Costco spot in the daytime and took public transport into the city from there.

Tried to fix this online but the free camping seems to only come in combination with a permit varying between a day pas of 4 dollar or fishing/hunting permits... too much hassle for a free spot, we moved on.
