Day 7 / Karima- Jebel Atrun- Karima
After an early breakfast we start our journey crossing the Nile and we then enter the Bayuda Desert, an area bounded by the loop formed by the Nile between the 4th and the 6th Cataract and characterized by sharp black basalt mountains, most of them volcanic and typically cone-shaped. They alternate with level pebble stretches and large valleys crossed by dry wadis, where little vegetation can be seen. It is very likely to meet isolated groups of Bisharin nomads, who live in familiar groups in small huts made of intertwined branches. Just in the center of the Bayuda Desert we reach Atrun Crater, where nomads gather salt from the edge of a green colored pool. They will then sell it to markets of the towns outside the desert. This is a magical timeless place. After the visit (which will be in the late morning and after a picnic lunch in the desert, e return to Karima.
Alernatively, you can spend the night in Bayuda Desert, sleeping in simple wild camp, instead of return to Karima (only for groups with a minimum of 2 cars)
