Found this quiet spot near the dunes, under some trees. Very quiet and can be reached with any vehicle. Lots of trees around for shade and wind shelter. Good internet reception with Etisalat.

To reach this spot it is best to come from the north/northeast. In the west you have the dunes and in the east/southeast a train dock and a camel track which you'll have to drive around.

BEEtopia is a Center for the Conservation of Bees through Research and Education.
And the best: the bees are stingless! Nothing to worry about!

It is run by a very energetic team of Beekeepers and Researchers that work together with the local beekeeping community!

Upon request, they also open their doors for guests curious about the little things!

Definitely a destination off the beaten path and worth a visit!

Coming from the south, this place is well located and has pleasant facilities. At least in relation to being free. it has a lot of space. The wall protects from the wind and nuisances. Toilets are clean. Unfortunately, water doesn't run at the sinks at all times. We were also able to use the ancient washing machine. We paid 75 Diham per night for two people and our MAN. We stay here for two nights. We would come back.

Riders note; 1.6km all deep sand approach from main road, difficult to ride loaded for me.
When I got there no gasoline - only diesel cash.

small dirt road off main hwy. peaceful night with just the sounds of nature. rode a couple hundred meters down the road and there were
spots to camp not visible from main hwy. traveling by bicycle but this would also work well for big rigs and car campers. great spot!

Perfect place to spend the night. On the small connecting road to an abandoned gravel pit, there are plenty of opportunities to spend the night.

Perfect place to park for free under coconut trees close to a bar restaurant with very kind woman.
You are at 20m from the ocean.
She cooks grilled fish and banana allocos for 6000cfa the plate for 2 people.
There is space for 10 vehicules overlanders without any problem.
There is grass with roots for vehicules that don't have 4wd cars.
Perfect to get an appointement with other travellers before crossing Nigeria !

Oman -> UAE. Easy border crossing. The Omani side was a little confused about the Carnet and didn't find our car in the system but just stamped the carnet out. UAE side quick - passport stamp and opening the car doors for them to look inside but not thorough search. Nothing to pay at the border.

Nice place along the river. Several flat and grassy spots to camp or park.

Totally exposed. No shade.

It's on the edge of a small town so expect locals to come by, though the couple people I talked to were perfectly friendly.

Lots of dogs barking at night.

Good Claro signal. There's a grocery store out on the main highway. I did not see any stores or restaurants in the small town.

Public swimming area at the river with several tables and palapas, plenty of places to park and camp for free. I arrived by bicycle after 5pm and no one was here. No cost to enter or camp. Very quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately some trash left at some of the tables but overall not so bad. Bathrooms for 5 pesos but not sure when they are open.
